Last year I said to R, we must repaint the apartment next year when we are on holidays. He agreed. This year, neither of us seem so inclined when we are both on holidays in June.
We have to use up the Qantas compensation voucher for $300. We can't afford to do anything too expensive. There is a recession hey, and I am always recessed. Most Aussie capital cities you need a car, but not Sydney or Melbourne.
We shall go to Sydney then. R agreed, but only if we could do somethings a bit different to the past, especially when we were with his rels and had to show them the sights, three times.
So, no Bondi Beach, no ferry to Manly, no Darling Harbour, no Monorail, no Chinese Garden, no ferry to Parramatta, no Oxford Street, no Queen Victoria building, no Blue Mountains, no Opera House, no Bridge, no Rocks.
Had a thought to go to Taronga Zoo, but at $40 pp, I am not so sure.
We have seen Sydney aquarium but in the early nineties, so that is on the list.
Lunch at Watson's Bay Hotel is on the list.
A tram ride to Lilyfield.
Tram museum at Mount Loftus, including a tram ride on an old Sydney tram.
A visit to the house where my paternal grandmother lived in Balmain. We did see it once by car in the early eighties, but like to see it again. That will be a ferry or bus trip. I recall writing a post about a nice pub in Balmain with views.
I have already posted elsewhere for suggestions for a nice train trip with views. North Shore line has been suggested, and a trip to Hornsby.
A visit to Observatory Park.
See Balmoral Beach.
Never walked through China Town, so probably will do that.
Ok, I am up for suggestions you Sydneysiders, or those with knowledge.
