Hi Everyone,

Hello from Sydney, home of the 27th Olympiad.  After a
month in New Zealand we arrived in Sydney on the 13th
of September.

If you didn't get a chance to check out our journal
entry on The South Island of New Zealand, do so. We
added more pictures and text since our last email,
including the description of our hike on The Abel
Tasman Coastal Track.

Sydney is totally alive for the Olympics.  The energy
and excitement are all around us and it's all but
impossible not to get caught up in the Olympic frenzy.

We were able to see Men's Beach Volleyball, Men's
Boxing, Women's Gymnastics and Athletics (Track and

We were ring side for the Men's Shot Put Competition.

We also had an amazing view of Sydney after doing the
Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb(see attached picture).

You can check out all the details on our stay in
Sydney at:

We bought a car at at backpackers car mart and plan to
drive it all the way north to Darwin (our departure
point from Australia).

As always you can check out all the details of our
adventures on our web site:

Stay in touch and we hope all is well with you.
