Our First Day in Sydney

After arriving in Sydney on Wednesday night we went straight to our hotel at Darling Harbour and then waited up for our other room mates to arrive. So after what was a very late night we didn't get going until a little later on Thursday.
Leonie (my SU Upline) and I decided to take a look around Darling Harbour and then get a ferry to Circular Quay so that we could go and see the Opera House and then have a quick walk around the Botanical Gardens. Of course before doing this we stopped in at the Lindt Cafe for a delicious morning tea, where I had the most yummiest of chocolate cheesecakes!

Leonie outside the Lindt Cafe Just some of the yummy treats in the window! Waiting patiently for my chocolate cheesecake :) Leonie on the Ferry. We sat right up the front so we had a great view as we travelled under the Harbour Bridge. Leonie and I on the Ferry
