Sydney, Australia

Ryan and I are nearing the end of our summer trip. It’s been a good run and we both are excited to finish it out here in Sydney, Australia. We arrived on Friday and got settled at our hostel. The first thing we did was walk the streets looking for a place to eat. We walked and walked, but nothing sounded good. Nothing, that is, until we found a Korean BBQ restaurant. This is something my dad makes for us and when he does, Ryan is in heaven. Ryan loves Korean BBQ! We ordered the large meat platter. It was huge – chicken, beef and pork everywhere. We had a great time grilling our meat. It actually made us feel like we were back in South East Asia instead of in the largest city in Australia.

Yesterday Ryan and I did a walking tour from Manly Beach to The Spit Bridge. Our guide book recommended about 3 hrs for the hike. The guide book obviously doesn’t know us very well. I stop and take photos of everything and Ryan stops to read everything. It’s a deadly combination when you are trying to keep to a schedule. We managed okay though. We did some shopping, watched some surfers and did the hike all in around four hours. We got a late start on the walk so the last bit of it was in the dark (lucky for us I packed a flashlight in the day bag just in case). Strangely, this hike reminded me of the time Ryan and I took a ferry from San Francisco to Sausalito. A couple of years ago while in San Francisco to shoot a wedding, a local told us that it was a nice easy two hour walk from Sausalito to SF. What that local really meant to say was that it was a six hour up hill climb. But just like the hike from Sausalito to San Francisco, we ended up loving the hike and really enjoyed seeing the city from that vantage point.

Below are a few images from our time out and about.
