A short but sweet vacation in Sydney last October 2016 after 12 years of waiting to go back. When I first went here when I was 13, I remember having the most amazing time! I get to climb the Harbour Bridge, visit the Opera House, get to watch my sisters skydive (I know what you’re thinking… why did I just watch them do skydiving? It was because I was a year early to be permitted to do it!), go to Featherdale Zoo to see some koalas and kangaroos, and they were adorably stinky! <3
This time, I was able to do more or less the same things I did the first time I visited. Toured the same old Blue Mountains and Scenic World, went to the city and stayed at Intercontinental Hotel, checked out Bondi Beach(!!!), and did skydiving finally! I also got to meet some of my friends who are now based in Sydney, and yahoo for making new friends as well! <3 Nothing beats catching up with good old friends.
If you’re wondering what that is, those are hailstones. We got stuck near Scenic World when a hailstorm came that it was impossible to drive further. Just our luck, we got stuck and had to wait for 2 hours for the police to come and help us out. It was scary, getting stuck in a foreign country but a memorable experience, I must say!
I also blogged in a separate blog post for my skydiving experience in Australia. Check it out here.
