Serenading at Opera House

I attended Musical Collaboration event in Sydney, Australia. I was excited because aside from the activity, I was able to travel in Sydney for the first time. Yes, it was my first time in Sydney. When I was still in Manila, being in Sydney Australia is just a dream. Why? First, it is far from my country and I don’t have visa to be able to go to Australia easily.

When I got a project outside my country and it was in Australia, I knew that a lot of opportunities will come along, Sydney is just more than an hour flight from Melbourne which is my current location.

I was in Sydney for two days, we traveled together with my friend last April 13, 2013 and it was Saturday. From the flight in the morning we went straight to the location of the event that we attended. We took Sydney Train from Domestic Terminal station to Central station. From Central station we transferred T1 Line (North Shore, Northern and Western Line) to Hornsby and got off at St. Leonards station. From St. Leonards station, we walked nearby until we found the place of the event.

IMG_6123The whole day of Saturday passed since we were busy in the event without even noticing time was passing so fast, until we left the place of the event quite a bit late. We need to go to the house of my friend’s friend so we have a place to spend the night. It was a good thing that we just need to take one train line, from St. Leonards station to Blacktown station. From Blacktown station, my friend’s friend picked us and went straight to their home. It was a short ride from the station to their house. We had our dinner there and chat a little bit with the owner of the house, they were really cool and friendly.

Next day, it was Sunday and in the morning my friend and I attended our own personal activity. In the afternoon, we drove to Sydney Opera House. This is the only place that I was able to visit in Sydney as leisure visit because my return flight is in the evening of Sunday as well (we only spent almost two days in Sydney).

DSC05018Sydney Opera House

Sydney Opera House is one of the symbolic man-made building or structure of Sydney and of Australia. Most people know that once they saw the Opera House, it is Australia. When I saw Opera House from afar, I was really excited, I never thought that time will come, that Opera House will be up close and personal to me. I can’t believe it at first, but I enjoyed the day, then my friends took a lot of photos of Opera House and myself. Though I never saw what’s inside the Opera House because it requires booking and there is specific schedule for the tour, I still never regret that I was outside of the Opera House. I treasured my time spent there and I will never forget the experience.
