The City that Never Sleeps

Sydney is really a lively place, a bit like London but with Sunshine and relaxed people. We had some good food in the Kings Cross area such as Czech cuisine, meaning sausages and pancakes, what else could you wish after a long flight!
Lots of things to see and many parks, a very green city indeed. Thanks to "I'm Free Tours" we got some interesting info about the city. I never knew that so many movies are shot in Sydney from Superman to Matrix. Apparently it is a lot less expensive down under!
We did visit Bondi Beach for a romantic stroll. We had an expensive, but definitely worth it, drink at the Sydney Tower Eye, also known as the big bucket. The Tower gave us great views over the city at 268 meters up in the sky. There was a really beautiful bar, with finally a good Belgian Hoegaarden for me and a Kir Royal for my lady as the exquisite icing on the cake!
A boat cruise gave us the opportunity to see the Harbour Bridge and Opera House from a good angle. We also saw a great show in the Opera House called 'La Soiree' with acrobats, burlesque, singing, hoolahooping and dirty dancing in a bath tub... Sydney was indeed the coolest city in Australia.
