Sydney Was A Success!

Jake, Tim, and I just got back from our trip to Sydney, and it was a great weekend, it went a little something like this. We flew out of the Sunshine Coast on Thursday night, this airport is so small that we walk out onto the runway to get on the plane. We got to Sydney around 11:00 and went and checked in to our hotel, the Harbor Marriott, where we could see the Opera House from our window, and then went and walked around the wharf for a few hours. We called it a night pretty early that night. On Friday we did the tourist thing and walked around Sydney, saw the Opera House, the harbor bridge, and the botanical gardens and basically walked around Sydney all day. At night we had happy hour in the executive lounge, where are there is free beer and alcohol as well as appeteizers, and then we headed for the Hard Rock Cafe to meet up with the others from Uni Central. As it turns out they had to leave early to see a show so we had a small bite to eat and then walked around King's Cross, and eventually made our way back to the hotel. On Saturday we headed to Bondi Beach for the majority of the day, it was alright, but personally I think the beaches are better up here in Queensland. When we got back to the hotel we got cleaned up and headed up to the executive lounge again for a few hours. That night we saw a comedy show at the Sydney Opera House and then spent the night out at the bars on the harbor. Today we got up and did some quick souvenir shopping and then had a last trip to see the Opera House, it was only a few blocks away from our hotel, and then headed to the Olympic Village via the harbor ferries to see a rugby game. The game was a good experience, these Aussies sure love their rugby, but we had to leave early to catch our plane. So all in all the trip was a success, we got to see some of the iconic sites of Australia and had a great time doing it. I will have the pics up either tonight or tomorrow.

Happy Mother's Day Mom
