I was last in Sydney twelve years ago. Just typing that makes me feel old – when I was last there WordPress (and thus, this blog) didn’t exist, all of my photos were on film, you could only get to the Internet on CRT-monitor terminals in Internet Cafes, wifi wasn’t everywhere, and cell phones were big, ugly, and often flippable. People in Sydney were sending SMS messages, and I had no idea what they were.
Things change. But they stay the same. Sydney is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, with beaches, bays and harbors that rival my very own San Francisco. It rained a ton while we were there, which made it much easier to breathe, given the wildfires that had infested the area in October. But…we still saw a ton of stuff.
(Please note that it was rarely this clear on my morning runs. These photos were also not necessarily taken while running, as I don’t bring phone or camera when I exercise. But you get the idea)
The city is full of the pretty folk, running/biking/Crossfitting/swimming in the mornings. I can’t stress enough how lovely it was. But as with any city, this is merely the beginning – a teaser, if you will. There’s so much more to Sydney, and I’ll be getting into it over the next couple of days.
