Since I had another impending birthday we decided it was a good excuse for a little holiday in Sydney. We flew to Sydney on a Wednesday and spent a very long weekend seeing the sights, taking in a play at the Opera House and enjoying the Vivid lights festival. The Vivid festival is a series of art installations all occurring at night since they are light based. One of the coolest parts was the images projected on to the Opera House sails. Since it is winter here, the weather was freezing. Luckily we had the warm Australian sunshine to keep us warm during the day.
