Sydney - full of surprises

Thinking the bridge climb was going to be the highlight of my trip, I unknowingly, had quite a few more surprises in store. Beware the most amazing Sydney experiences follow.

Friday is the day in question – a fabulous (and un-seasonally) warm and sunny day in beautiful Sydney. My boyfriend and I, first thing in the morning headed to Cumberland Street to tackle the harbour bridge climb. After an hour of preparation, we were up on Sydney Harbour Bridge with the most perfect view over the harbour and the city. Amazing experience 1 – the climb is spectacular and I would highly recommend it to anyone (even those afraid of heights - well worth it)!

After literally conquering great heights, we were off to check into our hotel – my boyfriend had arranged everything so I had no idea where we were going. After a leisurely stroll through The Rocks, we checked into a luxury room at the Park Hyatt (the best hotel in Sydney – and I would hazard a guess all of Australia) – amazing experience 2. We were escorted to our room, where we were greeted with a bottle of Australia’s best, fruit platter and the most spectacular view of the Sydney Opera House.

A spot of shopping followed, then dinner preparations, let me introduce amazing experience 3. At 6:30pm I was whisked away along Circular Quay to the fabulous Aria restaurant, for a sumptuous seven course degustation.

Three hours later, heading back to the hotel, we stopped to take in the amazing views on offer – amazing experience 4. With twilight Harbour and Opera House in sight, my gorgeous boyfriend dropped to one knee, presented me with the most beautiful Tiffany set ring, and asked for my hand in marriage.

Continuous tears of happiness followed, all the way back to the hotel, where again I was surprised with amazing experience 5. A trail of red rose petals followed by fabulous cocktails.

I spent the remainder of the weekend with my fiancée shopping, dining, exploring and enjoying beautiful Sydney!
