Mum's trip down Under!!

View Mark and Kate's 12 month holiday on MarknKate's travel map.

Mum arrived nice and early on 15th October after a very long flight via Hong Kong, my plan to be stood there waiting as she walked through the gate was somewhat ruined by Sydney traffic, what should have taken about 30 mins to get to the airport actually took 1hr and 20 mins!! After a few tears from both sides we introduced mum to Betsy for the ride home!

Mum was remarkably alert for someone who had just spent a day and a half travelling to the other side of the world so we started on the sights straight away. Manly was first which has some beautiful views from either end of the beach. We brought a weekly ferry pass so spent the next few days going in and out of the city. Some of the places we visited included the Opera House, Paddy's Market, Queen Victoria Building shopping centre, Botanical Gardens, Government House, The Rocks Market, NSW Art Gallery, Museum of Sydney, the Skytower and a boat trip to Parramatta to name but a few!! Phew!! Soon enough it was the weekend and time to head off to the Blue Mountains....
