Durch den alten Elbtunnel
waren schon mehrmals in Hamburg, jedoch sind wir bisher noch nie durch den alten Elbtunnel gelaufen bzw. gefahren. Auch wollten wir uns das Hafengebiet auf der anderen Elbseite anschauen. Auf der Suche nach einer Führung mit dem Fahrrad durch das Gebiet stießen wir auf die Hamburg Greeter. Peter ist auf unsere Wünsche eingegangen und hat eine interessante Tour zusammengestellt. Start war an der Elbphilharmonie. Wir fuhren zu den Landungsbrücken und durch den alten Elbtunnel. Ohne Peter hätten wir nicht auf die ganzen Kleinigkeiten geachtet. Auch haben wir viel Interessantes bei einem Blick auf Hamburgs Sehenswürdigkeiten und bei der Fahrt entlang des Containerhafens erfahren. Dann ging es über die Elbbrücken in die Hafencity. Kaffee und Kuchen gab´s in der Oberhafen-Kantine – ein altes Gebäude, das wir allein nie gefunden hätten. Auch in der Speicherstadt haben wir noch Neues erfahren. Vielen Dank an Peter für die tolle Tour.

Sydney Greeters, 2018-10-23: Mark met Katie from Berlin

On 16 October 2018, our greeter Mark met with Katia from Berlin on her first day in Sydney. Katia had previously experienced a greet in New York and had found it a very good way of getting the local feel of a city.
They caught a ferry from Pyrmont Bay to Watsons Bay. With a route that stops at Barangaroo, Balmain East, McMahons Point, Milsons Point, Circular Quay and Rose Bay, this ferry trip provides a great tour of the Harbour. Upon arriving at Watsons Bay, they followed the loop track of the South Head Heritage Trail up to the Hornby Lighthouse and the spectacular sea cliffs that offer great views across to Middle Head and North Head. They then had fish and chips for lunch at Doyle’s Takeaway on the Watson Bay wharf before catching a bus out to Bondi Beach. They ended their Bondi visit with a coffee at the Icebergs, taking in the sweeping views north back up the beach.
They then caught a bus heading back to the city. The greet finished at Paddington where Katia left the bus to explore some of the great examples of Victorian architecture – particularly the terrace houses – for which the area is renowned.

Sydney Greeters, 2018-10-25: Avy from The Philippines

Avy from The Philippines was keen to see some street art on her whirlwind tour of Sydney. Greeter Lyn showed her a selection of murals and graffiti art in St Peters and Newtown and later they feasted on some of Sydney’s best Thai food at Thai Photong in King Street. After dinner, they travelled back to the city for a gelato and night tour of The Rocks and Observatory Hill.

Sydney Greeters, 2018-10-26: Today’s report is from our …

Today’s report is from our greeter Peter M.
“On Friday I finally caught up with Lori, Cody, Jake and Colie from New York – the state not the city.
This was after the confusion caused by cancelled flights, very late arrival, missed trains and lousy internet connection, but hey, they were all out for a good time and that was had in spades.
After some discussion around the small jar of vegemite they had bought a tasting session was held in the dining room at the YHA where they were staying.
The decision was then made to do the coastal walk from Coogee to Bondi. So, with a small sense of adventure, we set out on a bus ride from Circular Quay to Coogee Beach. On the bus, we compared lifestyles and they learnt some Aussie slang and sayings.
With all the laughter I think the other passengers thought we were all mad.
The walk generated many, many photos and Instagram posts together with lots of oohs and aahs and more laughter.
We had a break at Bronte for refreshments and continued onto Bondi where I left them to wander around and work out where they were going to have dinner.
A very successful greet with a great family.
By the way, the vegemite was left in the kitchen at the YHA. The Global Greeter Network #SydneyGreeters

Sydney Greeters, 2018-10-31: Three ladies from Seattle

This week our greeter Bruce met three ladies from Seattle, Vicky, Debbie and Anne.
“It was a picture perfect day and we spent some time walking around Barangaroo before taking the ferry from Pyrmont to Circular Quay and then across to Many.
Coffee on the beach and lunch on Manly Pier before heading back into town.”

Sydney Greeters, 2018-11-12: Guests from Canada

Today’s report is from greeter, Martina
“I spent the afternoon today with Krystal and Kim Mah from Edmonton in Canada. Their special interest was parks, gardens and plants. Apart from the usual attractions, we went to flesh-eating plants display at Calyx in Botanic Gardens and Wendy Whiteley’s garden in Lavender Bay.
They showed great interest and enthusiasm and it was a delight to be with them.
Highly recommend Calyx display and its knowledgeable volunteer guides.” #Sydneygreeters The Global Greeter Network
