Hello Sydney!

Nothing like arriving in Sydney with sunshine and warm weather!  After smoothly going through immigration and customs, we took a taxi to the place we rented on airbnb, located in Randwick, just south of the famous Bondi beach. It is an old federation home with 3 bedrooms, beautiful hardwood floors and detailed ceiling throughout the house, very charming. Sue, the proprietor, has the master bedroom and is a delightful hostess. She immediately made us feel at home. Randwick is a fun neighborhood with tons of great restaurants nearby, not to mention the food markets.  We made a yummy veggie lasagna on our first night in Sydney. Great start to our 10 days here!

We took a long walk the following day through Centennial Park, which is close to Randwick. Impressive to see so many locals running and working out throughout the city. At night, we went to Hyde Park, where the Night Noodles Market is happening until the 26th. There were about 50 different food stalls to choose from, all kinds of asian dishes, we were in heaven. Both kids are asking to go back there one more night before it is over as they loved the food.

We visited the Opera House and Sydney Harbour today to see the famous landmarks. It was a fantastic day and the Opera House has really an amazing architecture surrounded by a beautiful landscape. We walked to the Sydney Harbour Bridge and crossed all the way to the other side, in Kirribilli, and back.

Sydney is really an amazing city with all the must-have items we like in an urban setting:  beach-check, culture-check, museums-check, warm weather-check, beautiful nature-check, diverse food-check, friendly people-check, good public transportation-check, parks-check, bike and dog friendly-check. Yep, I could easily live here!
