Day 1
Our flight to Sydney left at 8:30am so it was an early day for us. I was sad to leave New Zealand, and if I'm honest there was a part of me that was just thinking it would have been so much easier to just head back to the UK, rather than having to learn a new city and country all over again. I was very tired, and when we arrived at our Airbnb just after 11:30am, all I really wanted was a nap. Thankfully we had been provided with a very big and powerful fan, which was great as it was so hot!
I had a bit of a nap and then, with Laura still deeply asleep, I went out for my first wander around Sydney.

I headed over to Mrs Macquaries Point, where I got the iconic view of the Sydney Opera house and the Harbour bridge.

I wandered around the botanic garden for a little bit.

Heading back towards the Airbnb I walked past St Mary's Cathedral. I did go inside too, however there was a service going on so I didn't take photos inside.

I also walked past the ANZAC memorial, which was much bigger than I had expected!
