Travelling with a baby
Enjoying Sydney wonderful beaches, ferry rides, testing various watering holes, botanical gardens and opera, as well as wonderful neighbourhoods for 8 days.
We chose a North Sydney Airbnb flat, 3 kms from CBD by train or ferry; nice restaurants nearby, relatively buzzy during the week (we understand it’s the base of IT and advertising industries) and quieter and peaceful at weekends. Lovely flat, swimming pool and very convenient for its basement parking, Maria, thanks again ! 🙂
We loved Manly beach and went a couple of times .
The ferry commute is just wonderful; and one Londoner can’t stop comparing it with London underground on daily basis. Life is definitely not fair !
Bondi as well, its cool vibes and beach babes & lads.
Botanical gardens felt refreshing and bang in the middle of the city.
We bought Carmen tickets at the Opera – it must have been the most memorable opera outdoors – such a balmy evening, wonderful views over the harbour and amazing show! London is hosting many great opera performances over the summer months but I have to admit, despite attending many, we tend to end up with a blanket and/or umbrella trying to overcome the immediate realities of the chilli English summer whilst still enjoying the artistic bits.
We also explored some remote beaches and cool restaurants around – Jonah on Whale beach has been a wonderful day out. Stunning ocean retreat and the only Relais & Chateaux in Sydney; we had a wonderful brunch with bubbles and more catching up.
Blue Mountains amazing and majestic, we explored bits and pieces at leisure: The Three Sisters, Giant Staircase, bushwalks, Katoomba Falls, Cliff View Lookout.
Was ready to move to Sydney after those 8 wonderful days. Anyone else? 🙂
