The Work Week Gives Way to a Walk on the Beach

Our first full week of Sydney is behind us. On Monday Ryan headed off to work while I began freelancing and started my job search. It’s a bit odd not having a full-time job to go to every day. I thought my days would drag by (since I’ve been forcing myself to stay home and work rather than just play tourist), but they’ve actually been flying by.

Ryan seems to like his new position and has some nice new colleagues, a few of whom I got to meet on Friday night when we went out for drinks in Newtown. For my part, I’ve been busy trying to network and have set up a separate professional website (sorry, but the quality and frequency of posts here are suffering as a result), which will be far less interesting than this one to most people, but hopefully a bit more helpful careerwise.

In addition to getting some drinks with co-workers, this weekend we took the bus out to Coogee Beach and walked the gorgeous six kilometers along the coast to Bondi Beach. Here a few pics of those beeches:

Coogee Beach...the water looks great. Even though it's officially fall, the water is plenty warm.

There was a cemetery along the walk. Got to be one of the best views you could ask for for your final resting place.

The famous Bondi Beach.

We both aspire to learn how to surf. This sign, like so many others instructions we've seen in Australia so far, was completely cryptic.

Tuesday marks our two-week anniversary in Sydney. While it hasn’t been long, it’s already starting to feel like home. Things are becoming familiar, we’re picking up the local lingo, and starting to meet people. Once we get settled into an apartment (the hunt hasn’t officially begun yet) and get our stuff (currently somewhere at sea), it will really feel like we’re settled in.
