The iconic bridge, the traditional ferry... Sydney Harbour yesterday at noon or so and I am really here! And yes, we did go to see the famous fireworks on New Year's Eve!

My much-anticipated, long-awaited visit to friends and family has begun!
How do you know you are Down Under? When you wake up to an amazing dawn chorus with all sorts of amazing trills, tweets and whistles and you rush to your window to catch a glimpse of a kookaburra or two or maybe a colourful parakeet flying over eucalyptus trees and you think you are in the middle of the bush. When you see creatures at Taronga Zoo that only exist on this continent: extraordinary things like quolls and quokkas and then koalas and wombats and even a platypus!
Istanbul feels a million light years away and as for Christmas - hard to believe we celebrated it just over a week ago!
A new adventure today: we set off up the coast to Maitland for a family wedding!
