Sydney Icons, Gardens & Blue Mts.

Hi Mike --

More great pics!! Sydney looks like an incredible city (surprise,surprise!). I can see how you might spend days in the Botanical Gardens... reminds me of ones I saw in Victoria, British Columbia (arguably the farthest major city away from Sydney on the Pacific Ocean, yet similar in many respects).

The Blue Mountains also look spectacular... so nice that you apparently saw them twice. Great weather both times, it seems, though the valley fog gives them a whole new look.

A week ago, I sent you a link to a New York Times article by the "Frugal Traveler" who was visiting Auckland. Well, it turns out that he is doing a whole series on New Zealand. His latest submission is aptly named: http://frugaltraveler.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/04/03/in-new-zealand-a-man-a-van-a-plan/.

For an even more detailed account of New Zealand travels, check out the submissions by John Hockley on the GoNomad website.

What an adventure you are on, and what adventure still awaits you!!

Traveling with you in spirit,
