Sydney, the first of many...

So we've been settling into life in Sydney, getting used to being in a city again and enjoying the fact that we're not living out of a backpack....

The apartment's great, feels like home already and it's so great to have a wardrobe and mirrors! and our own bathroom! We're really loving it.

The nightlife in Sydney is brilliant with somewhere different to go every night if we fancy it.

We went to see Pearl Jam two weeks ago. The gig was amazing, it was so fantastic to actually see them play live after listening to their music for years & years... It was so good that we decided to go again this Saturday. So on Saturday afternoon we headed out to the Olympic Park where they were playing. We sat in the sun, had a lovely picnic then headed into the gig. Second time round was even better than the first while they played an entirely different set list we got to hear all the old classics and more from the new album - woohoo!

Apart from nights out in Kingscross, Coogee & town we've been exploring the rest of the city. We've done the Coogee to Bondi walk which was really good. At the moment they've got a 'Sculptures by the Sea' exhibition with sculptures lining the track all along the cliff tops. We've also taken the ferry out to Watson's Bay and taken a hundred photo's of the Opera House & Harbour Bridge! We've been to the Kirribilli, the Rocks & Paddy's markets - trying not to spend all of our savings though!

Sarah & Owen were in Sydney last week (their last week in Oz), it was great to see them and a great excuse to go out to Darling Harbour and meet up in Chinatown for dinner with all the gang. Darling Harbour is lovely, it really reminds us of the Viaduct where we were living in Auckland. Yesterday we spent the afternoon at the harbour just watching the boats coming and going, very chilled....
