20 – 21st August 2012
It’s the last day in Sydney nooooooooooooo! I really enjoyed my time in this beautiful city and got to meet some fantastic people, amazing scenery and there’s absolutely loads to do! Blue Mountains was a highlight!
Waking up this morning, I was glad to see that I wasn’t hungover. Because we went out last night…for Claire’s birthday and hit up some bars close by the hostel….most were full because of the Olympians returning home and partying. I managed to see some towering figures of the women’s netball team. They like to party. Hard.
So what did we do on the last day of Sydney upon waking? Well something Mark and I have always wanted to do. And that was to walk the Sydney Harbour Bridge!
It took a while to find the entrance as it’s not something you can walk up to and expect to see a load of stairs. It’s a maze of uphill networks to access but we found it in the end.
With the rising sun behind us as we started walking the length of the bridge, we marvelled at the engineering feat and constantly kept looking up to see the sky high structures. We did spot people doing the Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb. We opted out of this as it was quite unreasonably expensive. So we got snap happy instead of the structures.
Of course, we couldn’t leave the Bridge after one last shot of the Sydney Opera House.
When we got back to the hostel, we signed out and waited for the bus to come pick us up to take us to our next hot Australian destination.
