We've just had a fantastic 3 weeks holiday visiting Singapore and Sydney. We only had a two night stopover in Singapore, but time enough to really fall in love with the place! In Sydney we stayed with Caroline, an old friend of mine who emigrated to Australia in May. She works in Sydney and lives in Manly, a ferry ride away across the harbour! We did all the normal Sydney touristy things, plus a vineyard weekend to the Hunter valley, a trip to the Blue Mountains and a few days in a beach resort on a sand island across from Brisbane.
