Shopping (and fun) in Sydney

Shopping and fun are one and the same for us, but we did manage to branch out a bit while in Sydney.  Strangely, I’ll start with something we didn’t do, but that really looked like fun (unless you’re Roger and have a great fear of heights):  The Harbor Bridge Climb.  You can, voluntarily, agree to don a nondescript grey jumpsuit (to keep from distracting drivers on the bridge), tether yourself to the bridge and your fellow climbers and then climb across catwalks and up the arch of this Sydney landmark.  Keep in mind that your walking surface is not solid and, at many times, is more  like a ladder.  Since I had a desire to keep Roger alive and sane til his May 1st birthday, we agreed not to attempt this.

The shops are cute and the arcades are very reminiscent of London.  Business names provoke smiles – especially when they’re one of my pet names for my hubby.

(The name of the pajama shop is Peter Alexander.  I hope they come to America, but you can order online.  They’ll ship!)

Other fun things you don’t see everyday in America

And finally:  I really, really hate karaoke.  I don’t understand what’s fun about listening to talentless people attempt to sing.  I refuse to do it, ever.  But, when I came across this signage on the street in the Paddington district, I realized there may be some hope for the genre yet!
