Sydney {Part 2}

 ^^ On the Ferry
^^ To Taronga Zoo

^^Which has amazing views in every direction

 ^^Cause she has always loved reptiles

^^the lady sitting next to me had a bird steal 20 cents from her as part of the bird show

^^Bird Show Doves

 ^^Seriously the kangaroo's looked dead. Not interested in anything at all.

 ^^ I loved the trees everywhere... Maple?

 ^^Bye Bye Hotel room. Best Beds I've slept in - Sofitel Melbourne and Sydney. Lovely!

 ^^ Elevator Selfies

^^ Powerhouse. Long Walk to get there. Kids are free!

^^There was a wiggles exhibit. Dorothys house.

 ^^ Cool Yule. Which was to start a few days after we left :(

 ^^ The library in Customs house has a scale model of Sydney under the floor. It was very cool.  We were so tired from walking, I googled to find a library to hang in to wait for the MR to finish work.

 Bye Bye Lobby. Waiting for our taxi.

^^ Arrive in a train, leave in a plane. Sounds good to me.

So happy we got to join the Mr on a work trip. Very happy to be able to take the children out of our state (they haven't been far). Would even say I was happy I took a 14 hour train journey to be able to do so. Also happy to take the children on their second plane trip and finally a plane with individual tv screens!! I had the most tired achy legs from all the walking. So did the kids. I told them this holiday would not be like beach holidays or camping with lots of lazying and swimming. I said this is pure siteseeing and walking walking walking NO COMPLAINING! (they did a little, but I was pretty impressed with how well they held up) I said you can rest AFTER the holiday!

We were able to walk the entire sydney cbd, opera house, botantic gardens, art gallery, sydney tower, darling harbour, powerhouse museum, ferry, taronga zoo, modern art gallery, the rocks, stare at old buildings and plaques.

The only downside was as often happens with me-food was a bit of a let down (for starters nothing is open mon, tues, wed night in the cdb) and a family of six can't eat out at expensive restaurants 3 times a day. Ouch. We sightsee till we're exhausted then happen to not be near anything yum when hungry. So sadly we mainly ate subpar junk food apart from buffet breakfasts and a couple yummies from food court. One day I'll get the food thing right. I was happy to be spoilt by the Qantas Lounge food late evening as we were leaving lol.

I love a good holiday. I love a bargain one which made it possible.

Where to next?!
