Sydney in 48 Hours !!! ... Part 1


It was half past 7, me and my husband were totally drained, all thanks to the 18 hours of tiresome journey. We traveled via Air Asia, one of the worst flights to travel in... Almost no leg space, uncomfortable seats and horrible food, even the drinking water was chargeable. But a spark of happiness was beaming, as we were in Sydney, the most coveted place ever since I had viewed Olympics 2000. We booked Shangri la for our 2 day stay and the hotel offers panoramic views of Sydney Harbour. It was chilly cold ... Australia was witnessing its winters and as we snuggled under our sheets, it started raining heavily. A hot cup of coffee was a relief and we were off to sleep.


Day 1 - Jet lagged, we started a bit late. Gorged breakfast, we started our jaunt with a visit to St. Mary's Cathedral, holds the title and dignity of minor basilica. Amazing Architecture with lighting, we spent about an hour and finally moved to Queen Victoria Building, the shopping place and trust me it was heaven.

Emptying our pockets and getting some poses clicked we headed towards Sydney tower eye, by far the tallest building in the city. It offers incredible and breathtaking views of the city. This place is visited by almost every traveler and is mostly crowded during the afternoon and late evening hours.

Beholding the beauty of the city in our eyes, we headed towards the Royal Botanical Garden. On the way you can find lot of places to grab food and coffee to keep you moving for the day. Wide and beautiful, this garden is at the harbour front offering views to the famous Sydney harbour bridge and the Opera house.

It was 1 PM and we grabbed food at the Opera kitchen and got ourselves ticket for an hour long tour of the opera house. Enriched by the history of this place and soaking in all the beautiful and iconic moments we finally planned to travel across the famous harbour bridge and the walk was so special to me. Sydney harbour bridge climb is also advisable in case the time permits.

Dead and weary we reached back into our hotel, had an amazing dinner, sipped some wine and here I am updating my readers with this post.
Gud night folks !!! Hope you enjoy the pics and the next 24 hours would be followed by soon.
