Sydney conjures many nostalgic memories. A home away from home; a vision of the past, and possibly a window to the future. It has somehow become a part of me. I feel it in cool breezes, I see it in old, Victorian-era buildings; I taste it in gourmet food and I re-live it whenever I have fun. Sydney is all these things - a melding of dignified past and future, a place of enjoyment and leisure, of chilly winters and burnt summers. My first visit had me enchanted with the sandstone clad Queen Victoria Building, a shopping area and landmark with old tiles, stained glass windows and copper domes, the quiet Balmoral Beach and its killer Bather’s Pavilion Restaurant, its bustling Chinatown and grand harbor views from the North Shore. The Art Gallery beckoned, with the annual Archibald Prizes, adding an extra treat. But what struck me the most was Bennelong Point. Crowned with Sydney Opera House, the white sails across the harbor were a sight to behold.
