Arrival in Sydney & Bondi Beach- the day before our Cruise
After a very looooong flight in very uncomfortable coach seats – we arrived in Sydney Australia. We grabbed a cab from the Airport, and headed for our hotel. Took some photos of the sights along the way – those folks walk and drive on the wrong side!
After we checked into our room, we took a walk around the hotel. We couldn’t see the harbor from our window but it was across the street and under a bridge. We actually were able to walk to our ship! We were jet-lagged but wanted to stay awake until night so we could re-set our internal clocks.
We heard that “Bondi Beach ((/ˈbɒndaɪ/ bon-dye) was a nice place to visit – so we hired a cab and set off across town. Later we found out that we could have taken a hop-on/hop-off bus tour – but we’ll know better next time. The weather was yukky, but we still had a nice visit.
We took another cab back to our hotel, did some more walking around and headed to bed early because we were so tired. Tomorrow our ship comes in!
