It’s been very quiet at Traveling Well For Less. No worries, I haven’t ditched the blog, I’ve been traveling.
We (my husband joined me on this trip, imagine that) went to Sydney for a week, so expect to see lots of blog posts about Sydney, all there is to do and see, free things in Sydney, the Blue Mountains, Sydney craft breweries, Qantas First Class A380, Radisson Blu, Hilton Sydney, and Park Hyatt Sydney, how to spend a week in Sydney for less than $200, and more.
I’m now traveling solo again to another destination. Once I get there, I’ll post a photo.
