Day 27: Another Travel Tribe Meet-up Down Under

Day 27:  American Connection at Travel Tribe

Day 27: American Connection at Travel Tribe

Last night was the first Sydney Travel Tribe meet-up of the year. We headed to the open-air Customs House Bar near Circular Quay, which was perfect for such a hot, hot day. We had a couple of special guests which included the social media manager for Flight Center and the wonderful, fellow midwesterner @WheresAndrew from National Geographic.

Chatting went down with all my favorite Aussies and Aussie wannabes, and you’ll see in the daily photo there was a strong American connection. Here we have Heather, Caroline and Lauren — all Americans, all in Oz for various reasons and lengths of time, but never failing to find each other at Travel Tribe.

Not pictured are Alicia, Hannah, Don, Brendan and Andrew, making the count last night of 9 Americans. There was also a large handful of Canadians in the mix. In other words, North America is invading Sydney.

Of course, my night wouldn’t be complete without the pleasant and sweet serenading from Kevin Lippy as we made our way back to the North Shore suburbs. Tops night as always!

      Yes, lots of good Aussie folk there, too 😉 I made myself write this when Pat got up for work… part of the whole daily post project and I didn’t get it up before bed.

    Oh, how the times have changed! So many (N.) Americans now!!!

    These posts make me want to jump on a plane and return. But alas, there is a whole world out there that I have yet to see. Someday, again!
