Jet-lagged, hungry, and excited!

We finally arrived in Sydney, where the sun is shining and the food is expensive! Our ultra-marathon, 20-hour flight from Toronto was pretty uneventful. I slept and Jess didn't and we all know what that means! Luckily for me the excitement took over any potential crankiness.
It's now 5 AM on Monday we are wide awake after our 7 PM bedtime last night. So far we managed to catch our first glimpse of the Opera house, walk through the Royal Botanical Gardens and find gluten free pizza in the Rocks, a historic market / restaurant area tucked under the Harbour Bridge. The weather was a far cry from the winter temps back home, with the sun shining and high 20's!
Here we are, jet-lagged and starving, in front of the Sydney Opera House.
Now that we've got a long morning ahead of us, a trip to the hotel gym is in order before we set out to find breakfast and explore Sydney. We've got until 3 PM to explore before we head back to the airport for our flight to Cairns - where we'll be snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef and exploring the Daintree Rainforest.
We'll catch up from Cairns!
