Do you like my tourist shot?... I've lived in Sydney Australia my whole life and have come to embrace all the Aussie icons like flip-flops, meat pies, Vegemite, NRL, Aussie-slang and accent!. Having been brought up with the "Aussie-way-of-life", I however have not been limited to the single culture but also exposed to many in this multi-cultural society us Aussies live in today. It is a big mixing pot of various nationalities and for what I see it, a privilege to experience, enjoy and learn about the different values, traditions and foods that are shared across the surburbs. Though, when you do happen to visit the tourist hot-spot of Sydney and most especially Circular Quay, everything that is Australian instantly becomes more prominent. Despite having all the main attractions like the Sydney Opera House, Luna Park, Centre Point Tower and the Harbour Bridge all in your one view, you can't deny the buzzing atmosphere, the large crowds, the presence of seagulls and the stunning city-line in which Sydney Harbour has to offer. Whether you're a lifetime Sydney-sider or a tourist, I'm sure you would agree Sydney is one beautiful city no matter how many times you've seen it.
My most recent Sydney experience was just yesterday when my family and I had a funday Sunday out and about in Circular Quay - but it wasn't your average "stroll around and eat an icecream" type of visit - we were literally out and about speed-boating around Sydney Harbour! It was an amazing, thrilling experience and a WET ONE no doubt! The driver (who in fact went to high school with me, funny that!) performed a handful of boat jumps, swerves, skids, twists and 300 degree turns whilst also stopping at exclusive suburbs and nudist beaches. It was a terrific way to see Sydney differently and a lot of fun too. By the end of the ride, all of the passengers including myself were completely drenched due to the backsplashes of the stunts. Thanks to my waterproof camera, I was able to capture some photos and even some footage of the ride. Sunshine, smiles and thrills with the family! Could not have been any more perfect! :)
We booked our ride with Thunder Jet Boating Sydney and I highly recommend doing so! If this promotional video hasn't got you pumped, be sure to check out their hot online deals. I guarantee you won't be disappointed. There's even music pumping on the boat while you ride!
