Just returned from our R+R break in Sydney: 5 days and about 500 kms walking! One day we hiked from our hotel in the CBD to Woollahra and back – in teeming rain! We also covered Darlinghurst, Surry Hills, Newtown (don’t ask) and even Parramatta Rd one day (Deus ex Machina the highlight there). Not to mention the Art Gallery of NSW, Museum of Sydney, cocktails at the Café Sydney on top of Customs House, an Opera House tour and a ferry trip to Manly. See that cool place Nookie? It must be the smallest coffee joint in the world – the barista works in a room the size of a cupboard.
When it wasn’t raining, I would grab a few snaps along the way – great architectural details, cool type and bits of urban art everywhere. We were delighted to discover Calder’s stabile sculpture in front of Seidler’s Australia Square building (see above).
Now it’s back to the reality of not having room service at our disposal! And where’s my turndown service and pillow mint?
