A town no longer my own

It is strange going back to Sydney now. It was once a huge part of me… But that Sydney has moved on without me, and it is no longer the city that I knew or was a part of. When I walk around now, I am a tourist. But I try my best to not be *that* kind of tourist!

I look back over the photos I’ve taken on this trip, and I realise that the pictures I take in Sydney are the equivalent of the photos I took five years ago when I got to Amsterdam. Would you like to know more?

Some of my favourite places

We’ll start with the Sydney Fish Markets. We’ve been here before. I’ve brought you here a couple of times in the past. It’s one of my many Happy Places, and I love sharing it with other people. On this trip, I shared it with my family, and now I’m sharing it with you.

If you’re a seafood eater you’ll understand just how enveloping and drool-worthy this place is. Would you like to know more?

Blackbird Café

Onwards and upwards! Last Saturday had some of the most glorious weather Autumn has to offer.


Overlooking this spectacular view (and with a discount voucher) we sat down to a spot of lunch at the Blackbird Café.


Himself just needed to ingest copious amounts of fuel, and went for the Hawaiian Pizza.


I felt like being a little more daring and ordered the Crocodile Burger!


Crocodile is a very delicately flavoured meat. Vaguely peppery. I think it may have been a little too sweet for me with the mango chutney, but I was informed they have to cater to tourists’ tastes which tend to run in that direction.


Darling Harbour can really be a wondrous place. So long as I don’t have to deal with too many tourists I really enjoy being there!

I think I’ll have to procure some crocodile for myself and experiment with cooking it …
