I am going to take this opportunity to say Happy New Year to everyone that I know now. Mat and I are in Parramatta at the moment, getting ready to take a ferry or train into Sydney ready for the Big Night’s celebrations. We were advised not to drive in as it gets so busy and it also means we can both have a drink whilst watching the festivities.
We are both feeling a little daunted as we don’t really know what to expect, apart from the fact that everyone has said it’s going to be really jam-packed with people. Our original plan of going to find a nice cosy place to sit in the Royal Botanical Gardens that overlooks Harbour Bridge and the fireworks has been scuppered as apparently they are charging $250 a ticket to get in. We will just have to wait and see what we can find. We both agreed as it would be our first New Year in Australia we really couldn’t pass up the chance to go and watch one of the largest firework displays ever, just for the experience.
So anyway, that’s what we’re dong. Internet is still patchy at the moment and we have been so busy over the christmas hols that I haven’t had a chance to make any posts or send any emails. However, hopefully things will calm down a bit soon and we will get an internet connection sorted so I can be a bit more regular. For now, we both wish everyone a Happy New Year and hope you all have a lovely night.
