We had one last stop on our trip through the south Pacific: a layover in Australia! We had a few short hours in Sydney. We knew that we would come back this way some day, so we just explored the city on foot and by boat.
The Opera House is an incredible building. Like two shells rising from the bay, or at least from behind a set of stairs and gobs of tourists.
Sydney was so warm! It felt good to get on a ferry and cruise along the harbour, taking in sights and going underneath Sydney Harbour bridge. We spent most of the afternoon relaxing on the far side of the city, before we took the metro back to the main station and onward to the airport and — FINALLY — home!
