Sydney Opera HouseSydney Opera HouseSydney Opera House

Very special style, Jorn Utzon used parts of a sphere surface to design the sail-like roof structure.
Sydney was the city I knew most about before I came to Autralia. The famous Sydney Opera House, the harbour with the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Australia's biggest city. Although I just had a few days left before the flight to New Zealand I could have a good look around its center and the harbour bay. For me Sydney will also be forever linked with a late Christmas because it was here that a poste restante Christmas packet from my family reached me. So I enjoyed the home made Christmas cookies and walked around Sydney until I finally met Ira again. It was time to say Good Bye to Australia and to take off for New Zealand.
