Where I stayed
A touch of drama when dropping the campervan off in the Sydney suburbs - we hadn't read the small print on the contract which required us to have it cleaned inside and out. The dust storm that we had driven through near Albury meant that there was to be no chancing it, the thing was dirty as hell. Jie, blissfully unaware of the situation, had been dropped off with luggage at the train station around the corner expecting Ritchie back in a matter of minutes.
Sydney is regarded as a great city, and we would have to say rightfully so. It's difficult to pin down exactly why, but the atmosphere is good, the weather was great, there's loads to see and do, and eat and drink, plenty of parks, beaches nearby etc. etc. We enjoyed our stop.
saw Avatar on the world's largest IMAX screen
spent a day in Manly on the beach and trekking around
took one million photographs of the Opera House from almost every angle (even got one from the plane)
walked through the amazing botanical gardens marvelling at all the bats hanging upside down in the trees
went to Sydney Wildlife World where we saw a simply enormous croc, and Koala bears. Asleep, as they always are.
