Early 2020 AD. Danny and I embark on a 21st century Odyssey. On the Majestic Princess from Sydney to New Caledonia, Vanuatu and Fiji. Back to Sydney, then to Melbourne and flying back home.

After Parramatta and Sydney Olympic Park we returned to the hotel.

We had a lovely afternoon tea at the InterContinental and headed to the Royal Botanic Gardens and walked to Mrs. Macquarie’s Chair.

The Royal Botanic Gardens are a major feature in Sydney. Opened in 1816, the garden is the oldest scientific institution in Australia and one of the most important historic botanical institutions in the world.

The Garden and The Domain are open every day of the year and access is free. Its stunning position on Sydney Harbour, the Sydney Opera House and the large public parklands of The Domain ensure it is one of the most visited attractions in Sydney.

After this docile hike it was time for cocktails and canap├ęs.
