The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.” – G.K. Chesterton

Trip to Sydney (and Melbourne)!

We spent just over a week in Sydney to usher in the new Lunar year at the end of January. We'd visited Sydney about 3 years ago during the Chinese New Year celebrations and we enjoyed it so much that we decided to go to Sydney again this year for the CNY celebrations. We also went to Melbourne to experience what was left of their CNY celebrations as well.

We did many things in Sydney this time which we didn't do the last time we were there such as crossing the Harbour Bridge on foot to go to Luna Park and go on unlimited rides for free (just another case of being in the right place at the ride time); went to Bondi Beach and loved it; ferried to Manly Beach and mainly hiked around; visited friends in the suburbs; and ate out lots. Here are some of the sights (and of us) taken with my very bulky dSLR camera. Will post more photos up later.
