There's a saying that 'a change is as good as a holiday'. There's definitely some truth in that. It's pretty awesome to be sitting at a desk writing this and looking down part of Sydney Harbour. That may sound better than it is... my view is what many might describe as 'harbour glimpses'. Regardless, it's a significant improvement from the brick wall my previous office overlooked and I find it most distracting at times. Like this moment in fact. So distracting I've ditched what I was going to write about and taken a bunch of pictures in the last 5 minutes to make this. Enjoy the weekend.
Well, I may have been back in Sydney since July, but I still feel like a tourist. I grew up in Sydney, but after 12 years in London this does not yet feel like home. One of the advantages of being a tourist is feeling like you need to explore. Today I took a trip through Sydney Harbour on the ferry. Circular Quay to Watson Bay. Firstly, it's quick. I remember the drive out there being super tedious. The ferry would have to be the complete opposite. Secondly - wow! Even with a tired, ill-tempered 3 year old in tow it's enjoyable.
