When I saw the Opera House for the first time, it really impressed me because I never imagined traveling so far away from my country. Definitely, you feel like you’re on the other side of the world, that’s why Australia is known worldwide as down under.
We booked a backpacker on Bondi Beach, Sydney’s most famous beach. It had its pros and cons of staying there. The positive thing was that we were in front of the beach, close to a street full of shops and restaurants. However, Bondi Beach is far from the city center and the Opera House, so every day we had to take a bus to the station and then take the subway to downtown.
My friend and I agreed that in Australia birds are not afraid of people. For example, there is the white cockatoo with its yellow-crested. This bird is very funny and you’ll see many as you walk through the Botanic Garden. If you are with food, for sure they will try to “attack” you and take your food away.
Also, we visited Sydney Aquarium
Where is Nemo?
Visiting Sydney was a dream come true. However, I wished I had more info about what else to see or eat in the city. This was a spontaneous trip so I didn’t plan in advance, something that I always recommend. If you want to find more resources for your trip, this travel guide to Sydney is a good option.
