I left Christchurch, NZ and am in Sydney visiting friends I met in Turkey. Strange, I know, but couch surfing is my preferred method of travel and required on my meager salary. I still believe, even after having traveled to all seven continents, that Sydney is the most beautiful city in the world. Off the top of my head, others I would rank near the top, in no particular order are: San Francisco, Vancouver, Cape Town, Vienna, Singapore, Seattle and Perth, to name a few.
"Butterfly Blue", the name of the plane that brought me here.
A sign? Because that's where I'm heading.
The Sydney Opera house.
The Sydney Harbor Bridge.
A Sydney ferry.
View from the bridge.
See the house behind the trees, the one with a sailboat & infinity pool,
with 6 bedrooms? Lots of room for friends and guests!
That's what I want for Christmas, Santa.
Milson's Point across the harbor from the Sydney CBD.
Doyle's Fish & Chips, a classic on Watson's Bay.
