In between my adventures in tropical New Caledonia and mountainous New Zealand, I spent a few days in Sydney. The harbour area was where I spent much of my time, walking around and discovering various different views of the impressive Sydney Harbour Bridge (which was much taller than I had imagined), the iconic Opera House and peaceful Botanical Gardens. I also was able to meet up with an old university friend of mine, and we did a day trip to Palm Beach and Summer Bay (where scenes from the family TV show, ‘Home and Away’ were shot.) I also got to do a post-wedding photoshoot for the couple I was staying with which was a lot of fun and different from the norm!
