Sydney: Day 1 and 2

G'day everyone ;) 
That's right, I'm in Australia, and that's how I have to talk now.
The way there was quite eventful, my flight from LA to Sydney was cancelled and I had to stay in LA for 24 hours...I didn't leave my hotel though, I kept thinking if I ventured out that I would get lost and miss my rescheduled flight haha.
Everything went smooth again once I was on the last flight - 15 hours! It really didn't feel that long. I watched 4 movies and slept mostly. The meals were quite good, surprisingly.

When I got to Sydney it was 7am, so I forced myself to stay awake until a normal bedtime so that I wouldn't get jetlag, and it worked great. Here are some photos from the first two days. We mostly wandered around one side of the harbour (not the side with the opera house) and went to the Sydney Aquarium.

I'm already noticing so many different things here compared to Canada. Maybe I will compile them into a post.

 First things first, meet Bocky, Rai's cat! I love him already.

This is mimi. 

Rai's mom and him set up a really comfy bedroom for me, complete with these "flake" chocolates which I love but can never find in Canada.
 Flowers that Rai greeted me with at the airport. Also below, a vintage bag from his mom!
Harbour.
Aquarium lego statue.
 Nemo!

Penguins! These little guys were my favourite, they look so cute when they swim on the water like ducks.

The shark area was like a tunnel, so they swam above you.


More harbour! This time we walked over a bridge to the casino. I bet 5 dollars on a table and lost :( haha. Most of the tables were way too expensive though, I'm used to playing blackjack at 3 dollar tables in Winnipeg.


Oh and, here was an outfit shot from the first day :)
glasses from calico, top from forever 21, necklace c/o club couture, cardigan c/o LuLu*s, pants from American Apparel, shoes from spring.

XO.
