The other day I continued my tourist adventure of Sydney by visiting the Taronga Zoo. Like any red-blooded American, I’ve been to the zoo countless times. I was hoping for a unique experience on a completely different continent and that’s exactly what I got. The zoo was clean, well laid out, and staff were friendly. It’s across the harbor from downtown Sydney so you have to hop on a ferry, which was about a $10 round trip. From the ferry you’ll get up close and personal to the opera house as well as good photo ops of the harbour bridge.
I really want to edit some of these pics but a 7″ tablet makes that painful. I’d also love to post more pics and comment on a few but they take forever to upload and I’m tired of sitting in this apartment. Yesterday’s adventure involved borrowing a bike and a 25k roundtrip to the beach (that was interesting in a country that drives on the “wrong” side of the road) and today will be museum day (to avoid the sun and nurse my sunburn).
Without further adieu, the pics:
And a video just for fun…
Well, the zoo pics are amazingly cute. I do hope for more pics of the Opera House. Where did you find a bike to use? And 25K is kinda far, huh? Glad the rain stopped and you had some adventures. Stay safe.
You’re getting some great shots along the way. It’s hard for me to enjoy the moment and worry about getting a good record of it. You seem to be managing both pretty well. Have fun with all of it.
The napping meerkats made me go “AWWWWWWWW”. What kind of snake was that?
According to the plaque it’s simply called the Fierce Snake, and it is “The world’s most venomous land snake. A single bite can contain enough venom to kill almost 200,000 mice.”

A reblog from my friend Scott’s blog – the meerkat video is KYUTE!
Thanks Karen! Good luck with the new blog. We’ll have to swap WordPress tips.
