Mother And Daughter Journey Part 1
You may have read this. While I’m on sabbatical, I decided to take my big girl for a mother & daughter big trip. Why Australia? you may ask… Why not?
First, it’s an old dream of mine like really old, that I still haven’t achieve. But… dreams are meant to become true!!!
Second, it’s just the best time of the year, as it’s summer in Australia so we can skip a month of an ugly french weather.
And last but not least, I have met so many great australian friends through the blog, through instagram also, that I really wanted to meet them in real.
This is Part 1 of our journey: First impressions on Sydney
After surviving to the long long long flight…
… we were so happy to see friendly faces in the crowd, waiting for us! Sam and her husband were waiting for us at Sydney’s Airport.
Sam and David first made us stop to enjoy the view and to have our first Mom&Daughter Sydney pic!
Just a quick rest at Sam’s and we went for breakfast in a very nice Café: The St Malo Bakery. And the grey sky was gone, we were able to see this very green and blue city.
My first impressions on the city is about the light and colors. The light is so bright! Never seen that before anywhere else. The sun is very strong, the trees are very huge and green, and blue color is dominant with the sea and sky.
When we started walking in the streets, I was amazed to see how Sydney is wheelchair friendly! You know what does it mean? It means that Sydney is baby/pram friendly! So different from Paris! Every pavement has a friendly slope to cross the street. And is large enough of course! Might sounds strange a tourist notices that, maybe it’s because in France, we are into the disability access law implementation.
People are so friendly, so welcoming! Very helpful and patient with us. They speak very fast, but you just need to remind them that you are a poor french tourist and they would slow down.
Do you like to write down your impressions on a new city when travelling? What does it strike you first?
Stay tuned for Part 2….
