Bridge Climb!

25 Nov 2014

The last thing to mark off on things to do in Sydney was definitely the bridge climb. I wasn’t sure I would find the time to do it but my friend and her mom had planned to do it together and her mom got scared last minute and offered me her ticket. How could I say no?! It was AWESOME. I’m not afraid of heights but I heard that the stairs that you climb to get to the top are very steep and that worried me a bit but the climb was fairly easy. We stopped a lot to talk about various facts of the bridge and the surrounding area. The guides were also super awesome and made the experience 100x better, I’m certain of it. Our walk was at about 6:15 so we got to see the sunset from atop the bridge.
