Well, despite my hopes and promises, I was not able to blog our honeymoon while in Sydney. Needless to say, I returned home with several hundred images to go through and edit and I have finally finished! We had an amazing time in Sydney despite two thins: Chris got a pretty nasty cold on day two of the trip, which kept us inside for a day and a half; and when we arrived we discovered that World Youth Day was being hosted in Sydney, which meant the city was full of the pope and 2,000 young Catholics. Now, I have nothing against Catholics or the pope, we just weren’t prepared for that kind of dynamic so it was a bit jarring at first. But, I have to admit they did make our trip more interesting. Everywhere we went there were huddled masses of twenty-somethings from all over the world singing, banging drums and dancing.
I’ve decided to post a few of my favorite images below. After the last image you will notice a link to a slide show of even more of my favorites. Another thing you’ll notice is that many, many, many of the photos include an animal of some kind. I’m not usually so inspired to take animal photos, but we saw a lot of them on our trip and they were all so adorable, I couldn’t resist!
