Things to Remember About Sydney

Don't you hate it how once you get home from a dream vacation it feels like... well, a dream. Our time spent in Sydney feels like never happened and since I have the memory of a five year old I thought it would be a good idea to document the things we saw, ate and loved...

What we ate...
for brunch:
Bills for a modern Australian brunch
Mad Spuds Cafe for potatoes
Pieno for coffee and all day breakfast
The Tea Room for high tea
for dinner:
Din Tai Fung for dumplings
The Winery for the wine selection
Chefs Gallary for fresh handmade noodles
Sake Restaurant for fresh sushi 

What we saw...
Botanical Garden with the most beautiful greenery
Hyde Park for a romantic walk
Sydney Opera House to watch La Boheme
Darling Harbor for a perfect view of the Sydney Opera House
Taronga Zoo for a special appearance of kangaroos and koalas
Hunter Valley for wine tasting
Bondi and Manly beach for some R&R
Art Galleries for our creative minds

What we loved...
104 degree weather and the fact that it was their summer and our winter
the diversity of foods available to us
how Aussies love their coffee just as much as Seattleite do!
hearing Australian accents!
retailers closed at 6pm most nights and everyone got to go home and enjoy their families. something i think the US should adopt! ;)
the shopping and boutiques

and where we stayed...
Westin Sydney 
Bayview Boulevard Sydney

Off the top of my head these are the things I can remember about Sydney...
