Audrey Takes Australia Part 3


I headed into the city aka Sydney a couple of times. It’s just too much to do in 1 day! I was lucky the weather was perfect. It was a bit cloudy, but humid enough to wear light layers. The first time in the city was just to stroll around Darling Harbour to see Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House. The second time in the city was to walk around the whole city, maybe not the whole city, but quite a bit of it. While walking around, I was disappointed because the majority of shops and restaurants were closed since it was the holidays. When I mean closed, I mean closed for days. I wasn’t used to everything being closed because back home everything is always open.

Check out photos from when I was Sydney! WARNING: picture heavy

  • hmm yummy! lookie all the cupcakes! and that bathroom sink (#3 in the first set) looks so cool! It looks almost flat from the picture, is it? So australian’s call burger king hungry jack’s?! hahaha

    • Audrey Dao

      the sink is flat and wavy to seperate sinks from each other. there was no drain hole and i was like where does the water go?! it drains to back towards the wall. i shouldve recorded! or well. haha

    • Audrey Dao

      they used to call it burger king but i guess it didnt well as hungry jack’s. so they changed the name.

  • Cuuute dress – looks like you topsytailed! We forget they are so Brit-centric – buildings, names!

    An article in the Sunday travel section of our paper focused on convict history of Sydney and said every site seemed to have a chic cafe adjacent!

  • Everything looks so pretty! I like how photo 12 looks kind of like the three sisters! The opera house is much more pretty obviously! I’ve never noticed the texture of the roof before and I love it! I like how you took photos of the streets. I would do the same thing so I could remember where I went and look it up on google maps.

  • Ally

  • Jen
