I write this love letter to you on this #tbt as I reminisce the days when I walked your ground. Your beauty in the day is exquisite but no words or photos can do you justice, as your lights shine bright when the sun sets. I miss you dearly and dream about the day we meet again.
Yours truly Pchelkas Passport 🙂
The Sydney Opera house is breathtaking. I can not describe to you how beautiful this masterpiece is. The amount of detail that was put into building this iconic structure is mind-blowing especially when you get to see it up close and personal during the bright daylight. However, I was in complete awe when I saw it all again in the dark.
Take a ferry across the water to Luna Park for a priceless view of the Sydney Harbour Bridge with the Opera house and a city view in the background. Take a walk along side the water and take notice of the captivating views as the light reflects off the water.
Then for a little fun find your way inside Luna Park for a little adventure. Bring out the child in you inside Sydney’s famous amusement park located diagonally across from the Opera House. Be careful not to get bit as you enter 🙂
There are a variety of activities, food and fun for everyone of all ages. But, be sure to make your way inside Coney Island for a mirror maze, barrels of fun and the Joy Wheel to name only a few.
As you take a ferry back into the city, be sure to glance back and take in the view of all the colors lighting up the sky from Luna Park.
Now let’s get out of the city for a calm and quiet walk at Rushcutter’s Bay Park. Make your way around the entire park pasted the yacht club to the end of the park for a view of the still water. Getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city is always a great idea.
Once you get hungry or in need of a snack, make your way to Darling Harbour. The Novotel hotel is the perfect backdrop for photos with small cute cafe’s surrounding it. Walk along the entire harbor trying all the different cafes and shops.
One of my favorite times to go to Darling Harbour is around Christmas. Even though Sydney has opposite season’s from the states they go all out for Christmas with decorating the city. One of my favorite Christmas trees was located in Darling Harbour. It was not a real Christmas tree but was made of lights. It’s definitely a must-see.
In the spirit of Christmas, make your way to the St. Mary’s Cathedral located across from Hyde Park. Every year they do a story line of Christmas which is projected off of the building in lights. It’s a silent story told by pictures, which is like nothing I’ve ever seen. To liven the place up there is Christmas music playing to the beat of the story.
Travel Tip: No matter what city you are in, go look at it’s beauty in the dark.
