I have finally sat down to write about our trip to Sydney last week. We decided to take the whole family down to Sydney for 4 days last week as the kids had been asking us for a while if we could go to Sydney. We only told them a couple of days before we were about to go and they were so excited - "you're the best mum and Dad" was uttered more than once.
There were so many highlights - uneventful flights, seeing venus from a 130 year old telescope, watching the delight on the kids faces when they see the Sydney Opera house for the first time, seeing the industrial history of Cockatoo Island, retracing the steps of the children's book Alexander's Outing just to name a few.
Last time I went to Sydney I was 7 weeks pregnant with Isabella so in some ways it was precious to take her back there as a 7 year old.
After this holiday I really encourage anyone to think outside the box when visiting a popular tourist spot cause the unexpected delights we discovered made the trip something out of the ordinary.
