Sydney the Beautiful


I’ve spent a bit of time in Sydney lately, visiting family (including the cutest nephew in the world – not at all biased, of course!) and working from my employer’s Sydney office. My usual habit is to leave the house early and treat myself to a quiet breakfast at a cafe close to the office. The train goes over the Sydney Harbour Bridge past the Opera House and often the sun is just appearing over the horizon as the train passes over the harbour. If it wasn’t so breathtaking and if it didn’t bust out sunrises like this on a regular basis, you’d have to think of Sydney as an unbearable show off with so much natural beauty at its disposal. Perhaps it is – but it is a showiness that is pretty easy to forgive.
