On The Sydney Harbour Bridge

I can't remember how many times I've seen the Sydney harbour bridge on TV or magazines.

I've always thought it was lovely, but there's something awe-inspiring about actually driving on the bridge and watching the steel arches pass by.

The damn thing was opened up for use in 1932 and it is still the world's widest long-span bridge. After all those years.

You'd have thought some Malaysia-Boleh type on a testosterone overdose would have tried to up that with the Penang bridge or the Singapore causeway. Evidently not.

Apparently, the bridge is a hotspot for fireworks during New Year celebrations. Crying shame I'd be home long before that.

It would be a spectacular sight to behold.

Brings back fond memories of the time I was dating a Kiwi Angel who lived in Mosman... the ferry rides were always memorable & wonderfully scenic. Great weather in Sydney, but after a month there I found Sydneysiders way too hardnosed & their lifestyle too hectic. Melbournians are much more laidback, methinks.

Nice pics but where do Malaysia Boleh stands, no where near.

Even bloggers are turning to the Boleh syndrome.

I once made the grave mistake of taking a Sydneysider and a Melbournian in my car on a long distance trip.

They started arguing about which state was superior - NSW or Victoria.

I'm still having trouble trying to understand the Australian accent. I wish they'd speak English once in a while.
