Green Spaces and Sleeping Places

First week in Sydney

View Adventures in the Southern Hemisphere, Part 1 on smr1188's travel map.

Well I've been in Sydney, Australia a week now, a week! It feels both long and short at the same time, but in the end I've already done a lot and haven't gotten around to this blog yet.
Still in the trial stages, I haven't even decided if I'll send the link to anyone yet. But for now, I'll write things and post pictures and they'll be a bit of a delay as I write about the past week and post sporadically.
Sydney has not been what we'd expect for a big city. Before getting here everyone told us Melbourne is so much better and don't stay in Sydney too long, but we'd already set a vague plan to be here first, so we followed through on that. Wow, Sydney is beautiful! Aside from the massive Royal Botanical Gardens, there's tons of other parks and green spaces that we tend to find unexpectedly as we turn a corner down a new road.


There's a ton of awesome, or at least new, birds here that I'm not used to seeing or hearing. There will probably just be a bird post with a compilation of the pictures, but this guy was too colorful not to post right away.


We're staying in Kings Cross which is the cheaper (still $33 a night!) area, the redlight disctrict actually, but since we've been doing so much during the day we're in bed by 9 (around the time the other girls in our room are getting dressed for the clubs) so we haven't been out at night which is fine. Our room has 10 girls in it and a fridge, and not much else, but there's a cool window that opens up to a cute little balcony that we absolutely love. And we love that we're in a suburbs called 'Woolloomooloo'.
