This is the last night in Sydney. So here are my five favourites purely based on Sydney and my own personal viewpoints.
Five things I will miss...
1. Ferry trips.
They're the closest I think I'll come to living on a boat. I find them so peaceful, the different perspectives of the coastline and the temperament of the sea is, for me, a living thing. It's amazing how grounded I feel.
2. The beaches.
Soft sand. Warm water. Especially those with the trees that grow over the beaches. All I wanted to do was sit under the trees all day.
3. Sydney Harbour Bridge
I have lost count of the times Monkey has said "We're on the bridge" or "I can see the bridge." It dominates the city, especially as we were living in the North. We had to cross it to get to the CBD. I used it as my landmark to keep track of where I was.
4. The Opera House
It's weirdly beautiful and is surrounded by the gorgeous gardens, Circular Quay and The Rocks. I know that I haven't spent enough time there and will regret it when we leave tomorrow.
5. The choices and efficiency
Food. Theatre. Clothes. Merchandise. Education. Style of housing. Public transport.
It's going to be difficult to go back to four or five options and unreliable transport...
It's been a difficult few months. I can't say it hasn't, but I would be lying if I didn't say I am very sad to be going tomorrow
