Australia, Travel

Sydney, Australia [in pictures]

I was in Sydney from Monday, April 15th to Friday, April 19th. Frankie and I did so much with our time there and it was an absolute blast! Here are some pictures from the trip – I really will try to narrow it down and only include one or two from each day!

Opera House – Tuesday, April 16, 2013 – We did so much in this day that would take too many pictures to show! In addition to everything pictured here for Tuesday, we also explored the Rocks (the historic part of Sydney), went to the Sydney Observatory, went to St. Mary’s Cathedral, ate lunch in Darling Harbour, and walked the Harbour Bridge.

Sydney – Friday, April 19, 2013 (Side note: I’m learning a lot about the Aboriginal culture and there are so many layers to the history of the people here in Australia. A lot of it is interesting and rough and just something that not many people know about. Even in the school I’m placed in, there was talk during our pupil-free days about making sure Aboriginal students feel proud of their heritage and an Aboriginal man from the community came in to talk to the teachers and answer questions and so on.)
