Rain was the major theme during our four days in Sydney, but a sprinkle or two didn't prevent us from enjoying ourselves, even if we did have to run for cover on several occasions. We crossed paths with the famous opera house a few times and made the ferry excursions out to Manly and Cockatoo Island--I don't know why commuting by ferry is so entertaining to me but I had a ton of fun riding up and down the harbor. We also spent a chunk of time navigating the Sydney fish market and gorged ourselves on amazing seafood. The one day the sun came out, we trekked from Coogee (pronounce KOO-jee) to Bondi (BON-dai--I felt very illiterate in Australia), a fabulous coastal walk through Sydney's most famous beaches, which christened us with our very first all-genuine Australian sun burns. Skin care aside, do not hesitate to visit Sydney if you have the chance.
Look at these things:
