William Shakespeare said "And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything."
Sydney, known for its diversity of activities, is the perfect vacation place for you, families, or couples. It is built around a beautiful natural harbor, with much of the foreshore being dedicated as National Park. On the shores of the harbor is the Taronga Zoo, which is known as "the zoo with a view". You learn to appreciate the beauty of life, the beauty of land, the beauty of our world.
雪梨有宏偉的歌劇院Sydney Opera House、世界著名的海灘Bondi Beach、徹底遠離塵囂的淨土Blue Mountains，但你感受不到這城市的傲慢。陽光普照下，我在海港harbor邊享受著午餐，看著雪梨青少年們玩著滑板，漫步到national park裡探索，遇見一對從德國去玩的年邁夫妻，手牽著手坐在長椅上曬著太陽，跟我訴說著他們一起走過的歲月；走回harbor搭上ferry到Watson's Bay，我看見屬於當地人的悠閒，我感受世界的真也不過如此。學著雪梨人，我躍進海裡，瞬間的清涼似乎洗淨我這個都市心靈，那個下午，我感受了，我覺醒了，感受到大自然送給世界這個角落的美好。
I lay on the white sand of Bondi Beach feeling the "Aussie spirit" and observing the beach culture around me. Some people walk around in bikinis and board shorts, holding on their surfboards and ready to jump into the waves. Others lay flat in the sun, trying to get as tanned as possible. I breathe in the air. I smell the sun, I smell the relaxation, and I smell the happiness around me. Sydney, a city that opens up your appreciation to the world and remember not to take things around you for granted.
