Travel: Sydney day 1


We’re back!!! 😀 After our 8 days trip to Australia, both mom and I miss our cozy apartment!  It was a great trip. In just 8 days, we flight 5 times; we visited Sydney, Gold Coast, Brisbane and Cairns! So, be prepared for the recaps! Day 1: We arrived Sydney at 9AM. We met with our local guide who took us to Bondi Beach, one of the famous beaches in Sydney. DSCN1017.JPG

It’s a relative small beach. It’s famous for its U shape.

It was sunny when I arrived

and 30 min later it began to rain, and it stopped in 10 min.

And then we stopped by Rose Bay, where the most expensive mansions are located
