australia day

26th january 2012

sydney january 2012

we flew to sydney for a few days in january to celebrate our friend kaan's birthday. his lovely wife bron organised a yacht to sail sydney harbour for the day as a surprise. it was also a surprise that we were coming, the look on his face was priceless when we first saw him, he did a double take! 

on our first day we walked down to walsh bay for breakfast, then did some shopping in the city followed by late lunch in westfield then to the hotel to get ready for dinner.
