Sydney, Australia - View of Sydney

Australia!!  Gidday mates, coming to you live from the land down under, or better yet Oz, as the locals affectionately call it!!

And yet again, another adventure begins, this time where the kangaroos roam free and where going out for a swim can actually be quite deadly!! 

Luckily though (or maybe not!!), we’ve arrived pretty much at winter, so the sharks and jellyfish will have to hold off on chow-time because we won’t be jumping into the ocean any time soon . . . it’s WAY to cold!!!

So, our first impressions of Sydney and Australia . . . it sure does rain a lot here!! 

As soon as we step foot on this far-away place, there was only the rain to welcome us here!!  Bummer for us, because we were really counting on and expecting some nice sunshine and warmth!!  Nope!  Not yet!

Anyway, what may seem as inconvenient for us is grand for others!  And that’s exactly the case here! 

You see, Australia’s been going through a drought for quite some time now, so I’m sure the Aussies appreciate all the rain they’re having!! 

On the bright side, though, we have made it to Australia, so that’s great!  Who would have ever thought that I’d be here today!  :)

So far, the little that we’ve seen of Sydney seems to be very nice .

Sydney, Australia - Gloomy day in Sydney
. . if only the rain could stop for a bit!!

It rained non-stop for 3 days and we only got out once!!  And though we managed to squeeze in some sightseeing around Sydney, we’ve decided to hold off and visit it more in depth next time.

Let’s keep our fingers crossed that we’ll have some hot sunny weather when we get back here!  For now though, gotta take off and head for the north, where we’re more likely to have less rain and more sunshine. . . so they say!!

L'Australie, si un jour on m’aurait dit Arnaud, tu vas passer un mois au pays des kangourous, j’aurais eu du mal à le croire !

Bref notre première destination Sydney, malheureusement le bon temps était resté en Nouvelle Zélande, la pluie nous attendait dès notre sortie de l’aéroport.

Sydney, Australia - l'Opéra de Sydney & Le Pont de Sydney

On a écourté notre séjour à Sydney pour profiter du beau temps au nord, juste le temps de faire 3 ou 4 photos du fameux opéra et hop nous voilà sur les routes défiant les lois et les opinions des Australiens.

Pour les lois, il est interdit de faire du stop dans ce pays et pour les opinions, il y a 5 ans un tueur d’autostoppeur fut arrêté.

Il recherchait des gens faisant du stop et les tuer au milieu de foret, donc vous pouvez imaginer pourquoi les Australiens étaient septiques sur notre façon de voyager.

Il s’appelle Ivan Milat, et le plus drôle c’est que la police vient de découvrir il y a quelques semaines qu’il n’agissait pas tout seul, son frère peut être était son complice !!

À suivre .
