After showering we headed off to the hotel restaurant for our pre-booked breakfast. We decided not to bother for the other days in Sydney, the meal was expensive and limited in choice. We n went exploring again. As we have done in previous cities we’ve visited, we purchased open top bus tickets and spent the day riding around Sydney, looking at the sights and hearing the complementary commentary. This is an ideal way of getting to know a place and can be used as a taxi service as the buses are hop on hop off at any point on the circular route. The weather was not particularly warm, overcast for most of the day, which was fine until we got to Bondi beach. Here it was positively cold so we ended up buying hoodies, typical Brits, sitting on the beach in all weather.
After returning to Sydney in the afternoon we went back to the room for a shower before heading out for some dinner. We ate at another expensive restaurant, again a very nice meal and this time, with a bottle of wine inside me and a sleeping tablet I managed to sleep through until 7am.
