悉尼2日怎么玩

如果你在悉尼只有2天的时间,干什么好呢?怎么玩?玩法当然很多,我们这次选择的是Bondi+Bay的行程,属于自由散漫的消闲游。(注:Bondi=Bondi beach=邦迪海滩,Bay=Watson’s Bay=沃森的海湾

悉尼->邦迪海滩->沃森的海湾->悉尼

第一天,到了悉尼的市区以后,就开始压马路。顺着伊丽莎白路从Central Station一直向北走,走走看看,走饿了就停下来吃饭,一切随意,反正沿路的餐厅多的是,各种风味。平时我都会从乔治街走,但是自从乔治街开始施工🚧要盖轻轨以后,一直闹哄哄的,上下班时间更加拥挤。因为施工,我们这次去悉尼也没有住在市区,怕吵!

吃了饭,我们继续压马路,大路走到底就是水边了,巨有名的悉尼歌剧院婀娜多姿,象一个菠萝🍍头一样矗在你面前。我们每次来都要留影,这次也不例外。

从歌剧院前的火车站坐火车到Bondi Junction站下车,总共也不过30分钟左右。悉尼的行车卡本身不要钱,在报刊亭充值就可以了,公共汽车🚌火车或摆渡都可以用。周末打卡2块钱尽情坐。有问题请在留言里问,我尽量回复。

我们的旅馆叫Meriton Suites。第一次住这个品牌的旅馆,感觉还不错👍。我们的房间在18层楼,视野开阔,左边是悉尼海湾,右边是太平洋,坐在阳台上发呆也是一种享受!👍😃❤️

房间面积挺大,2间卧室,每间卧室都有自己的洗澡间和阳台。外加厨房客厅和洗衣房,可以住2家人了。我们只有2个人,所以住的不要太舒服啊!👌👌👌旅馆里有游泳池和蒸桑拿供大家享用。

Bondi Junction坐公共汽车🚌到邦迪海滩不过10分钟,4公里。邦迪海滩那里吃的玩的都不错,不用愁没事干。

旅馆阳台的夜景也不错

昨天海风吹多了,晚上睡的可好了。旅馆提供了咖啡机,手捧一杯香浓的咖啡☕️,在阳台上欣赏一下晨曦中的悉尼。可惜今晨多云🌤️没有美丽的日出做衬托。

旅馆的后街就是Bondi Junction的购物步行街。早餐🥣就在那里解决。然后我们就浩浩荡荡的往沃森的海湾走了。我们坐公共汽车去的,沿路也好看看风景。行程大约30多分钟。这个海湾上有几个瞭望口,景色都不错,小山的坡度也不大,还有一个海军基地在此,不要乱闯啊。餐馆都就近海滩,我们坐在树荫下吃吃喝喝,胜似神仙。吃了一大碗海鲜意面🍝,太好吃😋了!

我们是坐渡轮⛴️回悉尼市区的,又欣赏到了悉尼海湾的风景。购物2个小时,吃了晚饭,我们才离开。

Asia Trip 2015 – Sleepless In Hong Kong

Chinese might say that 04/04 is not a lucky number and it could be true – I was very unlucky today.

The flight from Sydney to Hong Kong was delayed and the connecting flight from Hong Kong to Taipei left without me. 😦 Apparently, it was also the last flight for the day to fly over the channel. I was stranded in Hong Kong for the night with just my passport and a wallet in my bag.

This is part of the fun of traveling – dealing with problems on the go, regardless how well I thought my plans were. 🙂 I actually have never been left stranded with no luggage before. I started to look forward to see what else could go wrong now.

The airline put me in the Hong Kong SkyCity Marriott Hotel (I gave it 5 stars for the facility and the service!) for 5 hours. It was 12am when I checked in. I planned to watch some movies but after a hot shower, I fell into sleep. 😃

UK Trip 2014 – Dubai

dubai

Etisalat, Dubai

Last night, I booked a taxi to pick me up at 3am this morning. This morning, after another 2 calls to the taxi company, finally, at 3.40am, I was picked up by a taxi and headed for the airport. It turned out that it was not easy to get a taxi on an early Friday morning. Sydney taxi drivers only do “individual jobs” which means that they would not let you share taxi with others. What do you do then? Keep calling taxi until you get one, I guess. 😮 The trip to Sydney International from the hotel was only 10 minutes yet it created so much drama.

UK Trip 2014 – Overnight in Sydney

MonkeyI was still packing when Chris came to pick me up for the airport. 🙂 I definitely started packing early this time but still, it became a last minute thing again. The Qantas flight was late as usual (One day, they will surprise me by being on time). The airport hotel Sydney for a night of transit is as boring as it can be. I don’t even get a phone in the room! Oh well, I really just need a place to sleep for a few hours.

Sydney is wet but I’m going out for a walk – its time to catch up with the Anderson family for dinner. 🙂

I will be in London tomorrow, yay! The gangster monkey is breaking out!

Food in Sydney

The Sydney Weekender (me) is back in town for my Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb and looking forward to spend time hanging out with friends.

The Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb was given to me for my b’day this year. I wrote the story here.

I think that we run out new things to do in Sydney these days so I basically just eat and drink when we are in town… Here are some of the highlights:

Sydney Bridge Climb Trip

A ticket for a full 3 hours Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb was given to me for my birthday this year (thank you John!! 💕 ). I have to say that I always thought the climb was an overpriced tourist thing so I have never done it. Nevertheless, I was excited to wake up at 3am (I’ve hardly slept!) to get ready for the climb.

We were very lucky that we were in a 5 people only group, comparing with the usual 10-15 people groups. Everyone got to know each other quickly and we were able to complete the pre-training ahead of schedule. Because everyone was chained to the side of the bridge and had to walk in a line the whole time, a big group would waste a lot of time on waiting for slow walker etc. With only 5 people, we were able to chat with each other or stop whenever we wanted for photos etc. The guide was a cute young guy. 😂 He told us lots stories and history about the bridge. For example, did you know that a diamond ring was lost during a proposal on top of the bridge? Every since then, if one plan for a proposal on top of the bridge, one need to chain the ring on the wrist. If the girl says yes, then the ring will be transferred to her finger without leaving the chain. 😅 FYI, the lost diamond ring was not recovered so look carefully when you walk on the bridge. haha…

The view on top of the bridge was amazing. We could see the rain on the left hand side of the sky yet on the other side, the sun rose behind the clouds. We were given “survival packs” to be chained on ourselves. I was so glad to find a jumper in it because it was freezing on the top of the bridge.

We had such a good time that I’m totally converted. If you plan to visit Sydney, book for a Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb and ask the guide to tell you the story about how they made it happen for Oprah in 2010.
