The major reason for going such a long way was to see the opera Carmen. This was performed on a floating stage on Sydney harbour. It was marvellous, fantastic, spectacular, and more. I loved it. Our seats were front and centre. We had a terrific view of the stage and all the activity.
Audience members could choose to arrive by water taxi, but we walked. Fine weather. Warm, but not hot.
On the land there was a recreation of a village square with tables, benches, shops, food outlets, drinks of all sorts, everything.

Restaurants and more.
It was worth every cent, and by the way, this took a whole year's savings.
We stayed in a very lovely hotel in the CBD, the Grace Hotel. I also paid for my son and his girlfriend to stay there for a few days.
We also went to the opera house, the museum, the Rocks, and more. I will probably bore you silly with more chitchat about our trip.
