"Sydney - where I grew up" Sydney by betska

You can take the girl out of the city, but you can't take the city out of the girl..........

I'm a born-and-bred Sydney girl but must admit that although I love to visit, I am also very happy to go back home to Port Stephens.

Mind you, right now they are installing the very first set of traffic lights in Nelson Bay. Bugger.

No matter where I travel to, and how much fun I have had, it's always so wonderful to see this view when my trip is finished.

I know many will argue, but I think we are so lucky to live in the best place in the world - Australia

Pros and Cons

    Ciao Betty. I spent one year in Australia in '97. Your city pics bring back fond memories. Thanks for sharing.

    I see a lot of pictures of Hans behind his camera and I told him so to look at Australia with his own eyes :) Great meeting pics.
