Australia – Sydney and Blue Mountains

What started as a rainy and cold affair went rather well in the end. As for Sydney the weather stayed quite changeable but with very nice weather in between, which made all the thunder and lightning worth watching – not, that I wouldn’t have enjoyed it otherwise. The blue mountains were chilly from down to one degrees, but with sunshine and thus the best weather for climbing and tracking. The only dangerous animals I saw so far, were some jellyfish and reptiles in the aquarium and those humans driving around the streets.

Sydney is a nice little town of about 4 mill busy inhabitants. It’s awesome to run around in the parks and to visit some of the museums and libraries. Being quite multicultural with a high percentage of Asians marks it as a nice spot to experience the most different happenings.
The blue mountains, about 100 km west of Sydney, offer a more laid back environment. I was able to meet obliging people, see kangaroos, do some bush walking and climb on some really nice rocks – even though sandstone provides sometimes fragile and crumbly characteristics. Thus speaking.. adrenalin rocks!

In the blue mountains and around Sydney..

And.. I’m right here!
