To Begin

Three weeks now that Paprika and I arrived in Sydney.
We have been welcomed with beautiful days. Some of them felt like Spring really…
An invitation to stroll the streets and along the seaside.
I let you with these random shots for today and I come back to share a comforting winter dish soon…

Across The Sea

Sinemage Blue Mountains Australia

It was late in the night and after going through a couple of turbulence, our plane landed on Wellington airport under the rain.

We were happy to be back and also pleased with our trip in Sydney.

Despite the wet weather which followed us across the Tasman sea, we enjoyed the mild temperature and a well-balanced program mixing culture, nature, food and shopping.

Sinemage Vivid Festival Sydney

We were lucky and glad to meet there fellow blogger [and excellent cook!] Razz and his wife.
Razz is a Sydneysider who shared spontaneously and generously with us the love for his city and country.
Please go and read the colourful story he’s posted on his blog regarding our first meeting in the city.

The imposing harbour bridge, the architectural curves of the Opera House, the historic area called The Rocks and the lush Royal botanic Gardens… We did most of the major touristic attractions, but we also took the time to just wander randomly in different areas and feel the pulse of the city.

Our accommodation in Surry Hills was conveniently located and surrounded by many little restaurants, a good bakery and all the amenities.

We also spent a full day in the Blue Mountains with Razz. And what a day !
In the morning when we arrived, the clouds were laying down in the valley like a white carpet and gave a kind of mysterious atmosphere to the place.
A couple of hours later, they were all gone. Like if someone had removed a curtain, the impressive depth of the escarpments was revealed and I almost felt dizzy.
At the end of the day, on the way back, we stopped one more time and looked at the fabulous landscape lit by a nice golden light.

The day before we left, we jumped into the ferry for Cocaktoo Island and enjoyed a 360° view of the harbour on the way.
The day went by quickly between the visit of the historic island and exhibits of Sydney Biennale displayed there.

To sum it up I would say it was a short, intense and colourful vacation.

Across the sea, we’ve seen a big city.
Across the sea, we’ve seen big mountains.
Across the sea, we’ve met nice people…
