Day 3 of Australia Adventure - Sydney   - April 19th 2010

Get up this morning and sort a little bit of my stuff and then proceed down to the lobby to have the included breakfast. For 5 dollars more I can have a hot breakfast to which I just take the complimentary one of toast and cereal which is quite filling.
I then after this decide to make this a random day and not really have much direction of what to do. So I just leave the hotel and choose a direction and walk. I make my way up the street and into the Kings Cross District of Sydney, which is basically the red light district of Sydney.
It is around 7am at this time and there are many people about in this area, including many people drinking beers at several outside pubs.

As well I notice a few of the strip clubs are open and are serving breakfast, quite different almost. I make my way up through this area and around in some housing areas.
I then make my way around in some park areas along the water fronts for many more views of the downtown and harbour area. I enter this residential area of many rich homes in Darling Harbour area. Quite a fancy spot with many great homes, a place where you don�t want to know the price value of these many homes. I also make my way to an area called Rose Bay which has a nice little beach and good park areas as well. I walk for many hours that morning and develop several blisters on my feet. But continue on as hard as I possibly can.
I walk over many hills and finally can see the Pacific Ocean in the distance to which I make my way towards.
Finally I make my way to the world famous beach called Bondi Beach, a journey worth walking. It is a very nice day and sunny skies, the beach is very wide and the water looks great. I go down to the sand and go barefoot and walk from one side of the beach in the water to the other and back. It is totally amazing, as well lots of good women scenery nearby as well. I am now very hungry after walking for over 4 hours this morning and its lunch time. I go walk about the town area to find a place to eat. So I decide to stick to a tight budget and go to a Macdonalds for lunch. Have a Big Mac value meal of a Big Mac, Fries or Chips if your British and a Coke for all under 5 bucks, not bad. I then walk to the end of Bondi Beach and find a good walking area of East Coast Coastal walk.
It goes for many kilometers along the coast and covers several lines of beaches on there. I go and walk this area for several hours that afternoon. Going up several hills and see some many breathtaking views of the ocean. I could go on and on about this walk. I will share with you the rest through my photos that I have posted up. The walk ends up at the Cogee Beach which is almost like saying �saving the best for last�.
By this time from walking all day, I think my shoes are at fault as my feet are badly blistered and I am limping like a rag doll at this point. I am at a point to which I can not walk anymore. I am in desperate need and decide I need to get back to hotel ASAP. I know i should have taken the bus back but I wanted some service and take a taxi and not care about the cost. It is amazing though with the taxi as the guy was driving with the gas tank almost empty, kinda funny.
on top of the 2nd beach, quite good actually
I get back to the hotel and go in and have good afternoon rest. Resting my feet and having some coffee. As I have a whole more 4 weeks of travel time still.
Later that evening, I go and walk back down to the Opera House area and take in the sights at night. It is totally amazing again at night and you get a a different prospective of it all. I walk around and enjoy this stunning place. Then it is off for a budget dinner tonight and just grab some sandwiches from a local grocery store. I know  I should be living like a king, but I have 4 more weeks of trip and just want to extend my budget as much as possible. I am about to just head back to hotel again as my feet are quite dead at this moment, so I decide I need to get off them. So off to bed and ready for my next Australia Adventure for the next day.
