A New Yorker in Sydney
Sydney Nimble Tours recently journeyed with New Yorker, John. He was here visiting old mate Gareth, and booked the Eastern Suburbs, Woolloomooloo and Barangaroo day out https://www.sydneynimbletours.com.au/eastern-suburbs-tour/.
Proceedings commenced with a drive to Bondi, Tamarama and Bronte followed by a walk along the coastal walkway. The walk was kept relatively short (15 minutes return) as Sydney was in the middle of a heat wave. Our next destination was a swim at Clovelly, a protected beach.
Suitably refreshed the group headed to Paddington, Woolloomooloo, Sydney Harbour Pylon and Barangaroo. At the end of the day the boys requested something out of the way and after some discussion it was decided to visit the Cannery in Roseberry (formerly the Rosella soup factory) followed by the Grifter Microbrewery in Marrickville. It was a long day!
John became a half Aussie picking up expressions such as ‘no worries’ and whilst in Sydney he spent a whole day at the Cricket Test between Australia and India. John did have trouble in determining which front seat of the car to get into and the most appropriate direction to look before crossing the road. Very understandable!
John was philosophical about the fact that he could not see everything he would have liked in Sydney and surrounds saying ‘he had to leave something for next time’.
The pictures below are of John and Gareth in sensible hats at Barangaroo and on the coastal pathway. Clovelly in the middle picture provided relief from the heat.
