Hello from sunny Sydney and buzzing beautiful Bondi

They have good quality fresh drinking water taps all along walks to refill your water bottle. I will try not to buy another throw away bottle of water, I’ll refill. Well done Australia!

Well Hong Kong, the frantic hub that is the busy little island, is now a distant memory. Sydney is a great city based around the harbour then sprawling on for miles, if you follow my Twitter and Facebook you will know I have succeeded in climbing the bridge, and have a hat to prove it. Awesome! I only came to tears twice, after all what’s the worse that can happen. Oh I can fall off and die like all the builders she mentioned during the tour. I have learnt to drop something first to break the surface tension then I may survive. Life is such every day education!

I adore Bondi, not so keen on Manly, which is the opposite of nearly every review I’ve seen. Maybe because we are hippies at heart, or just on a tight schedule. I do like how Australia is much more water conscious than the UK.

Me at Bondi, nice hat!

The photos are building up on usb flash drive and SD card as Australian internet has let us down in every location so far so I have been unable to post any! If nothing else it’s convinced me to buy a big memory ipad and all appropriate cables when I get home so I can do it all myself. I was a little naive in believing all the media that said wifi in Aus is great, it isn’t!  I will post photos at some point – promise! (Added in at later edit date)
