I love Sydney! (posted by Ann)
The flight from Singapore to Sydney wasn't great. British Airways has done this new thing with business class seats, to fit more people in the same space. Check it out on Seat Guru. Instead of three people across in the middle section, they've fit four. It's a little disconcerting to sit backwards, but that was okay. The part I didn't like was that they also cut the length short. I disagree with the rating on Seat Guru - the seats may lay flat, but I'm too tall at 5'6" for the seats. You'd have to be under 5' tall for it to be comfortable.
But, Sydney made up for it when we got here.
The Bridge Climb was just awesome. It is quite an experience, and you climb to the top of this.
They don't let you take anything with you at all - not even a Kleenex. Everything is clipped to the jumpsuit they make you wear, including sunglasses. No camera, nothing. You climb ladders, and through tight squeezes, on catwalks of steel mesh over the water - it's awesome. If you look on this picture right underneath the flags, you can see the tiny dots that are people at the top of the bridge. That's where I was!
It was so clear you could see forever, and windy so the harbor was full of sailboats. It was quite an experience!
After the Bridge Climb, as if my feet hadn't had enough, we walked around the harbor to the Opera House and I took pictures of the bridge and the Opera House. What a fabulous day!
Today it was all work, but tomorrow night I go to Cairns to go diving. I am having fun and working hard, but I miss the guys.
