Manly Wharf | Sydney

A nice girl from Sydney who had been following our travel blog emailed and asked if we wanted to meet up once we got to Sydney. There was no chance we'd pass up meeting with an Aussie local.

We decided Many Wharf would be a fun spot to meet since we'd have to take a ferry across scenic Sydney Harbour to get there. We hit it off with Gemma and her husband Andrew right off the bat. They are such a nice, creative, free-spirited couple who lives for adventure. They were getting ready to take off on their own 4 month travels at the time, and I have loved following their trip on Gemma's own blog since then (they hit a bunch of countries we missed and are excellent photographers, so it would be worth your while to check it out)! Making friends around the world is one of the coolest things about traveling. 

It was an overcast and rainy day in Manly Wharf, but the water was still full of surfers and the cafes on the waterfront were still serving hot coffee. It was such a lovely afternoon spent with good people.

The first handful of photos were taken from the ferry as we went across the Harbour.
