Somewhere between all the juices and cookies and shepherd’s pie and the rest of my life, I never got around to talking about Sydney.
We fed kangaroos just outside of Newcastle, where free-roaming kangaroos collect near a mental hospital and eat bread from the hands of increasing numbers of tourists.
We spent our time in Sydney relaxing at Bondi Beach, watching matches at a warm-up tennis tournament for the Australian Open, visiting friends and eating.
Back near Bondi Beach, the manfriend and I celebrated his birthday at A Tavola, an amazing Italian restaurant with handmade pasta. Go there. Eat there. It’s totally worth having to be a beached whale the next day – Bondi is one of the best places to do it.
