This week I used up some of my husband's frequent flyer points to take a trip to Sydney with him. As I mentioned in a previous post, I have started a new adventure teaching Social ArtWorking Classes. The Australian Distributor for the Social ArtWorking products is located in Sydney. I mentioned to them that I could come and demonstrate just how easy it is to teach and do the painting classes.
We arrived on Sunday morning and my demonstration was not till Tues. So, I had few days to have a wander around Sydney. Sunday we went to the Aroma Festival. I thought it was a brilliant idea to have food and my favorite liquid, coffee while enjoying the atmosphere at the Rocks, Sydney. There were way to many people for my liking. The lines were extra long, and getting food was an excercise in 'How to deal with Crowds'.
We decided it was easier to visit the Museum of Modern Art and have a coffee there where it would be much more relaxing. After spending 20 minutes getting food from a food stall, the Museum of Modern Art Cafe was much more relaxing. We could watch the crowd from our nice quiet seats in the cafe. What a view of Circular Quay.!
While at the Aroma Festival we passed by a famous Australian Artist's gallery Ken Done. Ken Done has been a favorite artist of mine since I moved to Australia. The first time I saw his paintings I secretly wished I could learn to paint like that.
On our way back to the hotel room, I was joking about how I felt like a mountain goat climbing all the hills in the area while we were in the elevator. When I heard a familiar accent. A couple in the elevator said "We are from San Francisco, and we're use to all the hills". LOL
Before we went to sleep, I checked my ipod again to see how much walking up and down hills I had done that day. Whew, only 8km. Still getting up the hill to the hotel that night it felt like a mountain! I counted that day, I had gone up the hill to our hotel 3 times just in that one day. My feet were starting to get sore and my legs were a little stiff from all the walking.
