I’ve had a fun four days with my friend Annemiek visiting from New Zealand. I took her around the tourist traps of Sydney. Now I have sore feet and a happy but exhausted demeanour. Here’s a few of the highlights we took in:
- Ikea (FIRST destination)
- Harbour Bridge / Milson’s Point / Luna Park / Domain
- Sydney University
- Darling Harbour
- Powerhouse Museum
- “Wicked” at the Capitol Theatre
- Taronga Zoo
- German beer and food at Essen restaurant
- Apple Store
- Pitt St Mall (such as it is at the moment with massive renovations underway)
- Krispy Kreme doughnuts
Phew! No wonder I am a little sleepy. Lots of fun though – especially Wicked – what a show!! God, I don’t remember the Zoo being that expensive though. $41 for an adult? Really Taronga Zoo? Really?
It all did wonders for my foursquare stats too.
