Who would of thought I’d be in the grand city of Sydney on a day in which they celebrate their country!
When I arrived I started looking for places to volunteer but everything was already full so I chanced the idea of wandering the streets in hopes of entertainment. As I finished my breakfast I got approached my new friend Kye, (one of the hostel haircut clients) “Care for a walk?”… “Absolutely!” I say.
Kye is from England and is just as unfamiliar with Australia Day as I am, so here we go “blind leading the blind”… First stop is China Town to see the tail end of the Chinese New Year party. Can you spot the little girl?
Then we walked far enough out of the city to find this adorable bar with a balcony that over looked what reminded me of Sutter street in Folsom California. The first pic is looking up at the bar, the second photo is the view from the balcony of the bar.
On the way to the next stop we saw this spectacular stone door to a local church. A woman wanted to take a photo of the “cute couple”… Sure, why not go with it?!
It is completely true to date for me, there’s an Irish pub in every country. Found it! (this one had quite the Aussie pride).
Did you notice the sign in the left side of the photo? I just did!
After dinner we headed through the street malls towards the harbor to see the highly spoke about firework display. It was the perfect way to end such a memorable celebration of Australia Day. Thousands of people over looking the water with fountains, lazor lights and colors of fire dancing around.
Thank you Kye for the great company in such a vibrant city. Happy Aussie Day Sydney!
I just thought this was a cool pic.
