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


We had lunch at Sydney Fish Market.



Our group (9) shared the three most famous seafood in Australia: Jumbo lobster that weighted almost 5 pounds!


two wild abalones


and two jumbo crabs





It was delicious and expensive! Each of us paid 50 australian dollars.

We ended our first day with a cruise dinner! 🙂 More to come later! 🙂
