Australia, known for its alluring landscapes, the Great Barrier Reef, vast interiors of desert called as the Outback and the unique animal spices Kangaroos and duck-billed platypuses. Placed between Indian Ocean and Pacific Ocean is a smallest Continent in the World.
Not in my wildest dreams i ever thought i will be in Australia but, i remember in my school days i had seen some pictures of Australia, as we visited one of our family friends and their son's family had settled in here. Not to sure if i was in 7th or 8th grade when i looked at the pictures and just randomly wished to be in "Australia". Don't we say many things randomly ?
For me, Universe started Manifesting my wish and after 14-15 years i got married and moved to this Beautiful Island. The first few spots/places comes to your mind of this country are beaches, Harbour bridge and Opera House and i was stuck with them too. I soon planned my Sydney tour with my Cousin (more of a friend) from Melbourne (As i was residing in Melbourne then)and soon landed in the Bridge City. After the speedy check-in in the Hotel the first thing we both wanted to do was to see the Giant Structure.
We both were awe-struck looking at the largest arch Bridge in the World. No wonder it has taken the central place in Sydney and become a much-loved symbol of the City. Keeping the thirst to know about the history and unexpected official drama of the bridge opening we were keen to step up to the top.
Getting into the climbers gears we started with the warm up and a quick brief on do's and don'ts; we started the climb. Bridge Climb is run by Bridge Climb Company and you can purchase tickets online or in person (make sure you do advance booking as slots may not be available). Bridge climb is not just the climb but the mix of history, emotions, drama, economy and politics. (Every country has this, silly me :p)
