A friend who had flown from Sydney to Santiago had made me crazy with jealousy when she'd shown me photos of Antarctica taken from the plane. I was desperate to see it for myself. When I got the chance to go to Australia for a conference, I got lucky - we flew far enough south to be over the ice, and there were clear skies too.
The classic sights of Sydney, on a warm winter's evening.

I spent a week in Coffs Harbour for a conference. I didn't have a whole lot of time to see the place, as there was not a lot of free time and the venue was way out of town anyway. But we were close to the beach so I went there most days.
I've been to Sydney five times on three trips to Australia, and every time, it's rained heavily at some point.
