Hi Folks!

After the excitement of being in Melbourne and finally meeting with Helen's parents, all four of us have now moved up to Sydney!

Gareth and Helen are going to show Helen's parents the sights and sounds of Sydney and generally give them a feel for the area! We all arrived within 20 mins of each other, with Helen's parents flying in on Virgin Blue and Gareth and Helen taking Quantas all the way to Sydney!

And thank God! The weather in Sydney is a lot warmer than Melbourne!! We're back up to 28 C again so we can get back to working on our tans!

Sydney in a day!

We decided that we'd show Helen's parents all the main sights on the first day! It meant that we had to do some mileage though! They went to Darling Harbour, on the monorail, then took a ferry from the Aquarium, past Luna Park, under the Harbour Bridge then past the Opera House into Circular Quay. We then took a train back to the hostel and went back into the city for some food and a night walk through Hyde Park! That's enough for one day!!

We've come up with a plan of what we are doing for the next week as Helen's parents only have 5 days in the city!

So we have to get them to Manly, Coogie, Bondi, the Olympic Park and the Blue Mountains as fast as possible!

Enjoy the ride folks, because after that we're heading out of town for the last time and on to The Hunter Valley.

Top marks to Wake Up! Hostel in Sydney too - nice gaff.


Lots of love from Gareth and Helen x x x
