Well I’m home now which means I left Australia on my long journey home to Portland. By long, I mean a very long flight of sitting on a plane with the seatbelt sign on. It was on pretty much 10 of the 14 hour flight.
My last full day in Sydney consisted of walking over the bridge and riding around on the ferries. It wasn’t the best weather to walk over the bridge but at least I wasn’t on top of the bridge doing the bridge walk for a huge amount of money. I began to wonder how many photos I could take of the bridge or opera house. Turns out I still have a lot of photos with both of those items. There were a lot of sailboats out on Saturday and how could I not photograph the boats with the opera house? Then on the day we left there was a triathlon in the harbor with the opera house in the background. Needless to say, I can find a thousand ways to photograph the opera house and bridge.
I’m still amazed at how many bats Sydney has. They are so loud even in the middle of the day. I think it is funny that there is a cafe located right below all the bats. I ate breakfast there the day we left and it was kind of stressful to listen to. They don’t fly low so they really aren’t bad to be around but they do stress you out. I guess they call them flying foxes in Australia.
Australia is a special and beautiful country. I’m already looking forward to going back someday. I won’t lie…I already looked up flights back. Just have to wait for my travel budget to grow again.
