Honeymoon Day 15: 30th December (Friday) – Exploring more of Sydney

Another day in paradise! We woke late and headed for a leisurely breakfast on our floor. Our Butler had already told us that breakfast time would be especially busy today on our floor, but as it turned out, it wasn’t! So, another very relaxed breakfast came our way!

After brekky, Ann and Karen went shopping whilst Ralph and I discussed a work proposal.

That took us all through until lunchtime when we headed out for Hyde Park Barracks and then onto the Botanic Gardens via some of the older buildings in Sydney. We finished off at Circular Quay (again!) for some drinks (again!!)

For eats, we tracked down a good Mexican Restaurant Baja Cantina that was only 15 minutes away by taxi. Apparently, Mexican dining isn’t very popular in Oz (Factoid: apparently Italian is! The food was superb, and the cheapest since we’ve been out here

Tomorrow is a planned leisurely morning in preparation for our mega new year’s eve event! It will be a three-course meal, a load of live entertainment, two firework shows AND a private party, all at the iconic Sydney Opera House

Nighty-night!
