A couple of days ago I arrived here, in Sydney!
On my first day here I got settled into my apartment and played on my iPad for a while, or at least, not the whole time (hee-hee)! Anyway, our first day in a new destination is kind of a get-ourselves-together-day, and our first day here wasn’t an abnormal ‘first day’.
Our second day here started out a bit out of the norm, for I had TOAST for breakfast! We found gluten free bread at the grocery store.
Some of you may know that I am indeed allergic to gluten, an allergy that makes me careful around certain breads and pastries, but TOAST? I have to admit I actually didn’t like it, I sort of LOVED it! I guess it’s one of the down sides about my allergy, which, oddly enough, has upsides too!
Then, since mom had to go to a conference at the University of Western Sydney, I spent the whole day with dad, knockin’ around town. We even stopped by a cricket oval (don’t get grossed out yet because cricket isn’t just an insect, it is a sport similar to baseball, and Australians love it just as I love soccer — sorry if that’s hard to relate to) and played soccer with our Thai soccer ball.
Later, we took a stroll up to a peninsula across from the Sydney Opera House!
In the late afternoon dad and I were shopping, when I found: GLUTEN FREE COOKIES…🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪😁😜. Since I’m finding more gluten free options as I travel, I am enjoying different delicacies.
The next day (toast for breakfast again😏) mom and I walked down and got some pictures of me with the Opera House in the background from the spot where dad and I were the day before! They turned out really great! Handsome picture, huh?
Later that day we all walked to the Sydney Opera House, the New South Wales Library, and a gallery. We had a good time. Here are some more pictures!📷
Today, we hopped a ferry and went to the beach!
We also went on a hike up the mountain and ended up stumbling upon ‘Lady Bay Beach’ (Nudity Beach) and there were, well, naked people, not illegally naked, of course, but, nude nonetheless!
P.S. Since you didn’t get a penguin picture, here’s a picture of an ibis.
