Darling Harbour in Sydney – A Dreamlike Experience


My first day in Sydney was full of anticipation – of how the city would turn out, whether it would be like my impression about a foreign country or not. I would like to mention that Sydney was my first international destination ever (courtesy my sister who lived there for some time). So, when my sister and I set out for an excursion, I was full of excitement (almost childlike). Darling Harbour was the first place I visited, and the moment I reached there, I was full of awe and wonder. I simply didn’t know where to gaze. I mean, I was clueless about how to absorb so much of visual treat in such a short time!  

(I am not going to load you with any Wikipedia information; you can check that out here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darling_Harbour)

We just wandered our way through the harbour – marvelling at everything that we came across. It was just like Cinderella on a break from her pining life. I remember sitting on a bench with my sister and having doughnuts. That was one moment very endearing and special to me because of the journey I had with my sister since our childhood. We reminisced some of our childhood silliness for a moment, while a couple of birds flew by to bring us back to where we were – a gorgeous place!

I was more amazed to see most of the things, while my sister was pretty much aware of everything. It was almost like a quick dekko of this fantasy world. It was like before I could even pause for a moment to soak in something, another attraction would pop up!

I really want to go back and spend some more time at Darling Harbour. I don’t know when it will be possible; or will it ever be possible at all? Anyway, it was just too good to be true and I am leaving you with some delicious pictures!
