Day 2, Cynthia and I decided it was our turn to try to figure out how to manoeuvre around the city without a native. After taking a train ride and a couple wrong turns, we managed to go into the city and get some banking issues taken care of and seeing what other cool things there are here. We ended up in the CBD (Central Business District) and oh my its amazing! We were there during lunch hour and everywhere you turned you saw people in business suits. It was quite a site to see.
Thankfully we got home safe and sound before it started to POUR down rain, so I would call that a win. (Even if I called it a night at 9:30pm haha) But I'm getting used to a different time zone so I think it's okay :) Well that's at least what I tell myself!
Today was day 3, and we FINALLY made it to the Harbour Bridge and Opera House! (pictured above) Since it was raining (THE WHOLE DAY!) we tried to think of something that would still be fun, but also not get us drenched. So we decided on the Zoo. After taking a 15min Ferry ride (very fun I may add, and a perfect spot to take tons of photos) we got to the Taronga Zoo. Since the weather wasn't nice out, some of the animals decided to stay undercover. But for the most part we got to see all of the animals we wanted to see! Of course my favourite was the Giraffes :) We unfortunately weren't able to feed them today, but I WILL DO IT EVENTUALLY! Melbourne better let me do it at their Zoo, or I'll just go inside there myself and feed them!
After staying inside the Zoo after they had closed (oops), we missed our buss to catch our ferry ride back to the train. So after waiting about 45min, we finally got back to the train and headed home. Grabbed some Thai food (which I'm enjoying at this moment as I'm trying this) and called it a night. It's now WAY passed my bedtime and I definitely need all the rest I can to take on all that this city has to offer! Can't wait to see what I end up doing next. <3
