October 2, ’04 – After a 2 1/2 hour delay out of Melbourne, due to nasty weather in Sydney, our flight took off and the three of us bumpity, bump, bumped our way to Sydney; arriving to torrential rains. Sydney is an awesome city, very cosmopolitan. So much to see, so much to do.
We hired a private guide, Gary, who along with his young son, Jamie, took us on a 12-hour drive. We experienced the beautiful coastline, The Twelve Apostles, kangaroos hanging out on a golf course fairway and Koala Bears in their natural environment.
In the fall of 2004, our son was an exchange student at the University of Melbourne for a semester, during his junior year at Georgetown University. Of course, we had to go visit and help him celebrate his 21st birthday, right?
