Sydney: The Rocks and a Stroll


This is a clip of strolling in Sydney on the first night, we were in awe very pretty city with amazing harbor views and a fusion of the US, some parts look like Manhattan, Australia and the UK. Beautiful old buildings are mixed with the new. Today we visited The Rocks the original settlement in the late 1700's early 1800's looks very much like London. They have a fun market on the weekend, and its very much the cool place to be. 


However 3 days is enough here its super overpriced we payed $4.50 for a coffee and $9.50 for a simple ham sandwich today. A trip to a grocery store later I think he he. While I highly recommend a visit to Sydney its stunning its almost impossible to live in the city center. Most folks commute 1-2 hours into the city on public transport. For a moment we were wowed and hubby even said lets look for work and live here for a couple of years then today we got back to reality and decided best to live in our medium sized town in the US with a normal cost of living! and just visit!






Great place for coffee -

Barcycle Vittoria Coffee 
Dawes Point, Walsh wharf the old wool loading docks, beautiful area looking at the boats and million dollar plus apartments, lovely owner from Italy and a cyclist and coffee is only $2.50 a bargain here!

Tomorrow I am going to meet the lovely Sheh from Cook Republic a Food blogger here, can't wait!

  12. I would love to go there. My husband would like to move there as well- it is just so far from home. Hard to leave family and friends.

  28. Glad you enjoyed the visit, I love the rocks. You hit the nail on the head, the cost of living is pretty high, especially in the city. But we love it though, couldn't imagine living anywhere else (but we're biased cos we live in a beach side suburb).
