First Impressions

First Impressions are everything. Here are my first impressions of Sydney.

We took off...

QANTAS much?

Check out the cloud cover over Adelaide...

There was a LOT of turbulence, which was a bit scary because I've only flown once before, when I was little. I kept thinking we were going to crash :P

Landing at Sydney. Again, QANTAS much?
It was really cloudy, so we flew through the clouds when we were landing!

A couple of hours ago, I hopped of a plane at Sydney Airport, and jumped on a train. My first impression of the trains was "ewww". They have graffiti all over them, are two story, and very plastic seats. I've been spoiled with the trains back home. {I forgot to/can't be bothered watermarking the photos, so please don't copy.

Train at airport station.

I'm a tourist alright...

The Harbor Bridge from outside Circular Quay train station.

About to drive over the bridge in a taxi.

Last but not least, the view from where we're staying.

Isn't it beautiful? I think it's funny how the Harbor Bridge and Opera house don't really stand out like they do in pictures on tourist websites and stuff.

Now I'm sitting here on the balcony waiting for it to get darker so I can see all the buildings lit up.

I love Sydney so much! Yeah, the Harbor Bridge and Opera house don't really stand out at all.
Not sure why but I love the trains in Sydney, even though they're kind of dirty, crowded, and old men stare at you =/
