 Blue Mountains, NSW, AU

Sydney is…



After the Opera House we turned around…literally, we physically turned around…and got a photo with the harbor bridge.

So that’s Sydney…check.

Guess we could have gone to the beach but we’ve kinda already done that a fair bit.

The other thing that’s in Sydney is our friend Dan, who invited us to go hiking in one of his old tromping grounds: The Blue Mountains.

Disembodied audience voice: “Now wait a sec.  You said Dan? As in the guy you went hiking with before?”

Us: “Yeah, him”

Disembodied audience voice: “From New Zealand?  That guy?”

Us: Yep.

Disembodied audience voice: You signed up to do this again after what happened last time?

This is not an encouraging sign…

Us: Yeah, well we didn’t really think that part through…

Disembodied audience voice: So how’d that work out for you?

Us: The views were epic!

Disembodied audience voice: Uh huh…right yeah not what we meant.  So, again, how’d that work out for you?

Us: Oh, about the same as last time.  At least this time there were stairs…

(Ps – the Blue Mountains are called that because the eucalyptus trees in the area release a large amount of eucalyptus oils into the air, which causes a blue haze to appear over the trees.  The area has also been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site since of 2000.)


Our video editing computer suffered massive hard drive failure during the editing process of this final video.  Good news: we back up like fiends so no real data loss.  Bad news: until we can coax a little more life out of this thing you’ll just have to amuse yourself with videos of our previous hiking adventures in New Zealand.
