Transport by and lunch with Victor.
By train from Museum. Principally to correct my faulty orientation when leaving the leaving the station. East must become east and west must become west. My Bondi Junction compass is arse about, to put it crudely, but so firmly planted, no amount of looking at a map will correct it. I don't think we can see Grace Brothers where R once worked, so perhaps we visit Westfield Bondi Junction shopping centre, the store location of Victor's favourite telco. But if my brain compass is not corrected, we will be making a return visit to Centennial Park.
Central to Dulwich Hill, return by train T3 line (check which city stations it uses)
Seems it has a different name. We went up to the top in the early 1980s. It's a work in progress.
Too hard this trip. Leave ourselves wanting for a return trip.
Well, that took about two and a half hours. There were many diversions along the way. Holiday planning on the net can be very time consuming. How did we do it before the net? Well, for the above we would have found out the basics at the New South Wales Government Tourist Bureau in Collins Street, right near the South Australia Government Tourist Bureau, near the Queensland one, near the New Zealand one, near the Tasmanian one. These are just the ones I can remember. We did use the Japanese Tourist Bureau to book train tickets for Japan a few years ago. I wonder if that still survives at least but it was really a private travel company I think.
Anyway, with the luxury of some time, it was good fun to plan and investigate. Using public transport can be a great way to get a feel for a city. Our Sydney Opal public transport cards are ordered and I've downloaded a couple of useful phone apps for Sydney.
Now as discussed online with Dina, and personally with Sister, I must not overplan. I fear it is too late for that but apart from the visit to Centennial Park, I at least have not allocated days. The weather can often be the deciding factor as to what to do.
