We arrived in Sydney early this morning. After was seemed like an endless wait to exit the ship, we finally got off, went through customs and immigration and all is well.
We’re now at the beautiful airport in Sydney waiting for our flight on Qantas Airlines, known as one of the best airlines in the world. Check-in was slick and professional and we managed to have the only US $70 in excess baggage fees.
|View of the harbor. Lovely!|
Now we have only 30 minutes of free wifi time offered by the airline with no apparent option to purchase more. As a result, before we board, I am attempting to load a very fast post and a few photos. More amazing photos of Sydney will be available tomorrow once we’re situated.
Waking up this morning to only stepping outside to see the famed Opera House and Harbour Bridge took our breath away. It was hard to believe that we’ve just entered our fifth continent.
We only have two more continents to experience to have stepped foot on all seven; Antarctica and South America, both of which we plan to visit when we’re done in the South Pacific.
|The Harbour Bridge. Wow!|
This, by no means, will be the end of our world journey. In many ways, it will become a new beginning, of returning to countries we’ve yet to visit fine-tuning our choices to those we long to see.
For today, I must wind down to ensure we can get a few photos loaded. No time for the photo from one year ago, but will do today and tomorrow’s when we post in the morning from Trinity Beach, Australia.
Happy days ahead. Stay with us!
