Mist, Museums, & Men, Sydney Style.
All exceeded my expectations.
Oh stop rolling your eyes, it’s harmless admiration! Believe me, it took a long time to discover these things this morning.
There was an endless, sticky line through customs (I got my passport stamped!) at 7 AM Sydney time, then another few hours of trains and moving into my Airbnb house. Before I knew it, I was in the city.
For those who don’t know, I love cities. I love feeling the bustle and observing the people (though it didn’t seem like it yesterday), and generally being swept into the life of a place.
It was misty, so I spent most of the day in museums. It cleared a little later, and I spent the day wandering, which I love!
Take a walk with me, and find my favorite parts of “street life.” From talented buskers (street performers) to gorgeous parks and cathedrals, pictures are worth a thousand words:
This was one of the high points of Sydney, I will admit. Men here all look and smell like an Armani ad. I don’t know if it’s just because I was on vacation, but there’s just something perfect about these well dressed men, and the sheer quantity was overwhelming.
I think it’s an unwritten rule in Sydney (and all of Australia) that all the residents be gorgeous. I felt slightly like a small child watching a glamorous party in my rumpled travel clothes, but I didn’t let it get me down – it’s good to see all the beauty in the world!
And now for my favorite moment of the day:
Despite the vast amount of walking and site-seeing, this day isn’t over yet.
What happens next is something that I’ve never experienced, and hope to never experience again, but it deserves its own post.
