Down Under Part I: Sydney

The first of what I hope will be a series of posts on my recent trip to Australia.

Sydney Harbour

Any visitor probably first experiences Sydney at its harbour, which gives a million vantage points to view the city from. There’s one secret to the charm — multiple perspectives of the heart of the city; each spectacular.

Maratime Museum

There’s the architecture — a mix of old colonial and modern glass, even leaving aside the Opera House.

And call me stupid, but I couldn’t get over how well Sydney’s signs were written.

Cruise Bar

In my travels so far, I’ve found cities to be variously amusing or drab, zippy or sleepy, grand or quaint; but I never thought I’d ever find a city beautiful. Sydney, however, had a beauty so unexpected it left me in disbelief.

We had just planned to be in Sydney for only a day. It felt like we could stay a lifetime.

    Wow, breathtaking photos, Anshul! I, too, regret not visiting Australia when I was based in Singapore.

    “It felt like we could stay a lifetime.”

    Sounds like you’re ready to make some relocation plans? ;)

    Sherene: Thanks. Nah, no relocation plans involving Australia, so far!

    Shash: That’s from the harbour bridge pylon lookout. It gets you 87 m above sea-level, not as high as the bridge climb itself (134 m); but they do let you take your own camera. We did the bridge climb as well, and I can tell you the views from the pylon are more or less similar.

    I know you love her but you have to let her go it’s going to be hard but you have to stop all contact. She may be a woefnrdul person but she sounds VERY selfish. If she was not “over” her husband she should have never started a relationship with you. She is very confused and it’s not fair to you for her to leave you hanging why she figures out what she wants. She has led you on the entire time you have been together. She has basically had an “affair” with you until her husband affair has ended. It doesn’t sound like she considered your feelings at all. It’s obvious that you love her! But does she care? You let her play with your feelings the last time she went back to her husband and she will continue to do as long as you let her. She is sending the text messages to keep you interested so you will stay around just in case it doesn’t work out with her husband. Don’t you think you deserve better than what this lady is doing to you? Wishing you much luck and hoping you find somebody that truly love and respects you
