Think about Australia and all you can imagine is a Kangaroo? Well the feeling was mutual too. But when I visited the country, I realized it has so much more to offer.
With budget constraint, we decided to binge on just Sydney and Melbourne on our Travel agenda. 2 cities so close but so different from one another. My partner in this “Travel crime” is my husband who thank-fully is up to all my crazy ideas. Thanks buddy!
The 18 hr flight from Dubai to Sydney put us in complete jet lag. The 2 time zones actually zoned us out. But just the thought of exploring a completely new country (a continent, rather) actually put all our enervations behind. Thankfully we arrived late night in Sydney which actually helped us to just crash in our hotel and get some rest. Our budget friendly hotel was in potts-point area which is well connected by trains to reach the city conveniently.
The city being well connected by the public transport, an OPAL card and GPS will take you everywhere you want to go. Make sure you have good walking shoes and a bottle of water handy.
