This weekend we came to edit the vlog we had filmed of our 8 hours only to realise we had deleted the footage accidentally. But we still had a few photos, and although we're gutted we no longer have the video, we thought this would make a fun post.
The first stop was of course the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Can we pause one second to appreciate the train in this city? We walked straight of the airport and onto a train which dropped us almost at the footsteps of the opera house. Public transport this good is a foreign concept for us Kiwi's and we were pretty amazed to say the least.
After a drink and a snack on the waterfront we spent the remainder of our short few hours in sydney wandering the streets. The buildings we're beautiful, but nothing quite compared to the at the Queen Victoria Building. It was an amazing shopping mall and at the centre stood a breathtaking 24 meter christmas tree.
After a wee bit of shopping, our feet began to tire and our hanger set in so we headed back to the airport. It was a brief, but awesome first taste of Sydney!
