The Most beautiful New World City on Earth !!!!!

July 2004:

Is this the Most beautiful city in the entire world ??? It could possibly be. A good arugment could be had for this AWESOME city. For those who have been here the arugment is valid. Maybe Paris, Rome, Hong Kong,....my vote is split.....Paris, and Sydney. Sydney might not have the ancient history like Paris or Rome, but what it lacks in history it makes up in people, sounds, and food !!!! The city could be seen in 4 or 5 days.....but it's such a long trip from the America's that it isn't fair if you don't spend more time here. The Sydneyer's as they are called are some of the friendiest people you will ever meet. They enjoy talking to the "Yanks" as we were often refered. The food is without a doubt great...and the wines produced here can go toe to toe with any of the first growth wines of France. The night life is something to be seen. The days are full of adventure, and the sights and sounds are almost undescribable......you got to see it to believe it !!!!! We spent tons and tons of money, but it was worth every penny....the Americans are liked (for a change) and the experince is something to be a part of !!!!

UPDATE : May 2008

Sydney is still my favorite city in the world, but I must say just like everwhere else the prices have shot thru the roof.....the first time I went to Sydney the exchange rate was $1.89 to $1.00 now it's almost even at $1.04 to the dollar !!!!

But it's still a charming, friendly and great city !!!!!!

A great place for a family vacation or Honeymoon spot !!!!!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:American's are liked, food, wine, people, excellent transportation within the city
  • Cons:almost 15 hours non-stop from San Francisco
  • In a nutshell:AWESOME !!!!!!

    Price has changed a bit since then. Still worth it to do it. You get one picture included in your climb with the whole group. It definitely is a "must do" and I have given it as a present to family members and friends. Very recommended.
