THE OLD MANOR HOUSE
Our first trip to Sydney proved not to be our last as we went back again just over a year later. Pretty well everyone who has had the good fortune to visit Sydney seems to say it is one of their very favourite cities and we thought exactly the same way. This was only a two day stop-over and we were at an hotel rather than exchanging.
The hotel was at Darling Harbour and, on the day of our arrival, it was the final day of the Sydney Boat Show so the harbour was alive that evening. We did all the usual things within the time available to us.
As you probably know, you can go on a 'bridge walk', right over the top of the bridge. On the first picture you can just about see the flags (click to make bigger) - on the second you can see quite clearly the dozen or so brave souls who had just reached the top. I wanted to go, but, you know, Theresa and Abi were too frightened to come with me so I thought, nah, won't bother, hehe.
So, after Sydney we set off to our exchanger's holiday place at Surfer's Paradise, south of Brisbane. Go there!
