I love SYDNEY.
It holds many wonderful memories of visits from days gone by.

The thing that I love BEST about Sydney, is that there is always a bustle happening.
I wouldn't want to live here permanently, but as a visiting destination, it's TOPS!

Sydney is a veritable mixing pot in so many ways - a hodgepodge conglomeration of all sorts of things!

I really like the mix of old vs new;

traditional vs modern;


vs glam;


vs avant garde.

The people are a fascinating bunch to watch!

The standard of driving has to be experienced to be believed (suggest you don't venture near Sydney if you have neck problems.....or if you do, then fasten your seatbelt securely, close your eyes, block your ears, and hope for the best!).
This method of transportation however, looked much less frenetic and far more pleasant...

Naturally, gourmet experiences abound and the standard is topnotch.

I have now discovered a new 'fave' chocolatier -

My one real regret being, that I didn't make the most of the opportunity to load my suitcases up to the gunnels with this fabulous chocolate!
Instead, I kept outta trouble and busy, visitng some other iconic Sydney venues...

Paddy's Markets

The Sydney Opera House

The Rocks
And of course...the highlight of this trip

A fitting celebration to the preceding years of hard work

And a night to remember!
