Oh, I'm a big fan of Sydney! We came to Australia on work exchange with my dad in the 80s for a few months, and I loved it so much that I stamped my 12 year old foot at the airport and declared I'd be coming back when I was a big girl. 10 years later (almost to the date), there I was, packing up my life and getting on a plane. I spent a year in Melbourne too, which I adore, but it's not Sydney.
I love Melbourne's wide streets and bustling day and night life when there is an event in town, but no matter how many great shops it has, how many great restaurants call it home, how many sporting events are hosted there...it just doesn't have Sydney's stunning harbour and surrounds.
Why does it scare you? It is a big maze but with a friend in tow it can be lots of fun.
Sydney scared me too once upon a time, but then I lived there and realised it really wasn't so scary after all, and there are some seriously beautiful parts of that town! Gorgeous shots of luna park and the harbour. Last time I was there I went there and took some similar pics, but in the evening, so they look completely different to yours - amazing what different light can do. x Sannah
I've always said Sydney is an awesome place to visit... I am just glad I don't live there!Your photos are fab!
I love Sydney! Don't get there enough, last time was 7 yrs ago. I have a few very similar photos.
i wanna go to Sydney!
Think I need a few more visits for it to grow on me... but I love your photos! :)
Nothing to be scared of! Just a big city with crazy drivers! xx
Sydney isn't so scary. LOVE your photo's, well done.
I love Sydney! Lived there for six months and loved every single day of it, though I have to say Melbourne is home. x
Love Sydney, just wish it wasn't so far away from Europe
Oh please don't be scared, Sydney is a teddy bear, really. Gorgeous photos, you certainly did the touristy thing perfectly xo
