Sydney is glorious during spring and I sure made the most of it. On a pleasant day in the spring of 2011, after a quick brunch at home, I headed over to circular Quay to see the Opera House for the umpteenth time. Not that I was bored or something; Opera house always offered something new every time I visited, so with high hopes and some chips to munch on, I marched towards the Burwood station, to hop on to the metro.
When I got down at the Circular quay station, I quickly looked for my coffee spot and had my dose of caffeine for that hour. Travelling alone has its own perks, you get to hop in and hop off anytime, anywhere you like, you can drink coffee all the time, you can doze off in the metro not knowing you missed your stop and the list goes on . Why, wouldn't you?
Enticed by the majestic view of the Opera house, again, I fell in love with Sydney. This time around, I wanted to keep walking, all the way to get to see the other side of the view. So, I decided to make the climb.
The Harbour Bridge Climb – I was more or less broke, travelling like a nomad in the streets of Sydney and quite naturally, I did not have enough money to make the climb. It must be for the glitterati tourists who came from all over the world, I had thought and kept walking...
Sydney sure did not disappoint me, as there was indeed a walkway besides the Harbour bridge for people to enjoy the unparalleled beauty of the Opera House and its surroundings. It is called the “Cahill walk” which covers the Harbour Bridge itself, Pylon lookout, The Rocks, Circular Quay, Opera House, Macquarie Street and the Botanic Gardens. “What more can I ask of from this scenic walkway?” I muffled and happily trotted along.

Here are some pictures from the Cahill walk on the Sydney Harbour Bridge. This walk was indeed my favorite weekday getaway as I never missed a good weather day to walk here during my stay at Sydney.
