SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA: Sydney is an absolutely wonderful place. This video gives a small overview of the surroundings in Zetland. Zetland has got a lot of new buildings in the last years and a lot is quite new. Besides the new buildings there are also typical older houses that remind of England. In the surroundings you can see how much work the Australians do with the design of their surroundings. Everywhere there are parks within short distances. At every corner there are plants, which are completely unknown at least for a European and either originate from tropical regions or are native plants. The parks have many amenities. There is drinking water everywhere, public barbecue areas, benches and shaded donors. Especially in summer these places are popular and are also clean and safe places to stay outside at night.

What I have not shown here is that Meriton also has a pool in the ground floor. The Meriton is my preferred place to stay in Sydney. It is not cheap, but compared to the alternatives, especially for longer stays it is much better suited than being locked in a small hotel room.

That doesn’t have to surprise at all, because the distances in the USA are much bigger than anywhere else.Continue reading “🇺🇸 2009 Florida – Day 2 – Orlando”
