11th Day til Christmas

On the 11th day til Christmas... I was out exploring Sydney with Mum. We started the day with a buffet breakfast at the hotel and then headed out to shop ourselves out. We walked up to the Rocks & looked through the markets. Over to Circular Quay & down the street to The Queen Victoria Building. We didn't buy a lot but we spent a good hour in the Haighs chocolate shop. 

I loved seeing all of the Christmas decorations around the City, especially the 24 meter Christmas tree in the Queen Victoria Building.

 After an early dinner we headed back to the hotel to get ready for the Carols in the City. The reason for our trip to Sydney was to see Carols in the City hosted by Guy & Jules Sebastian. The show was fantastic and it was great to see such a variety of artists perform. Guy Sebastian, Samantha Jade and Shannon Noll are just a few of the people who performed.

So many artists donated their time for this show. 

After the shower we shared crepes from Max Brenners & had a look at the Christmas lights around the city. We walked back to the hotel very ready for a rest after a day full of a lot of walking.
