Day 22 : A surprise concert at Sydney Opera House

Wednesday 12th November 2014

Goodbye Cairnes & goodbye lovely view.
We took a painless flight to Sydney with no frills" Jetstar " , slightly overbooked , one lucky lady spent her journey on the flight deck in a spare seat !

Our final stop in The York Hotel, we have a spacious apartment & my own personal washing machine & mini tumble dryer, I'm in heaven.

As soon as my first load was on , We headed out to the Opera House, The magnificent landmark dominating the bay.

Directly opposite is Sydney Harbour Bridge, home of Sydney's New Year fireworks extravaganza.

Ian & I took the 4.30 Guided tour & learned about the 16 yr construction process & the challenges the architects faced , once the fantastic design was chosen in 1959.

Whilst booking our tour we decided we should try & see a performance , The Ballet wasn't on Ian's short list.

So we opted for, The Sydney Symphony Orchestra & Tori Amos....We can safely say we didn't recognise a single tune throughout the entire performance, However her devoted fans cheered & roared as each song began.
The Orchestra were superb & made it a thoroughly enjoyable event.

Dinner was served at The Eastshore Restaurant. The view of the opera House & Harbour Bridge were awe inspiring .

Anyway reader back to our apartment with its 12th floor corner balcony for 40 winks before tomorrows adventures.

Goodnight reader xxx
