Sydney Harbour CruisePosted: February 18, 2011
Last night, Macquarie University invited all 400-some of its study abroad and exchange students to a free cruise on Sydney Harbour. A few others and I took the subway to the departure point outside the Opera House, and my first Sydney public transit experience went smoothly. We had a slight moment of confusion on the way home, when the boat unexpectly dropped us off at a different dock than we departed from. But we were able to get directions from a University employee on the boat and easily found our way back to the subway station.
As for the cruise itself, well, it was lovely. Packing 400 study abroad students onto a boat with drinks and music isn’t usually my idea of fun, but we escaped to the upper deck and managed to avoid most of the debauchery. We also took in some wonderful views, like these:
