No looking back…
Alright so 2016 was one of the most unbelievable years ever, but where’s the fun in stopping at that? Having such a great year last year only made us want to have an even better year this time around, so thats exactly what we aimed for!
Day 223 – Sunday 1st January 2017
Today, on a day of a whole lot of laziness, junk food and movies, there wasn’t particularly much that happened. In fact, the one and only thing that’s worth mentioning is the fact that the adventures of Meg and Jake finally came to an end this afternoon as they left Australia for good and headed back home to normality.
We are so thankful to have been able to hang out with two of our best friends on the other side of the world, and although it’s now going to be another five months before we see them again, we know that it’s going to seem like no time at all. Thanks guys, for a whole bunch of memories that we’ll cherish for the rest of our lives. We love you loads and we’ll see you again very soon!
Day 224 – Monday 2nd January 2017
Today happened to be both our last full day at the apartment and our last full day in Sydney, so we took our one last chance to wander around exploring as tourists.
After taking public transport in to Circular Quay we walked down past the Opera House through to the Botanical Gardens, where we found Mrs Macquarie’s Chair and one of the most beautiful lookout spots that the city has to offer. Then, just as the clouds started to break and sun started to shine down on us, we took the ferry over to Manly again for a bite to eat:
We had a nice pub lunch followed by ice cream and a slow stroll along Manly Beach, then decided to head home after opting against taking a dip at one of Australia’s most notorious shark spots.
For dinner we stopped at Red Rooster, then watched a movie back at the apartment before bed. We probably should’ve started packing but didn’t even consider it really, which means that it’ll be first on our list of thing to do in the morning. Oh the joys!
Time is flying by far too fast for my liking and I have no idea how we are leaving Sydney already, but if there’s one thing we’ve learned so far it’s to make every second count, and that’s exactly what we’ll carry on doing. We’re going to be home in around twenty one weeks though – how scary is that?
