Sydney (pronounced /ˈsɪdniː/) is the most populous city in Australia, with a metropolitan area population of approximately 4.34 million (2008 estimate). It is the state capital of New South Wales, and was the site of the first British colony in Australia. It was established in 1788 at Sydney Cove by Arthur Phillip, admiral of the First Fleet from Britain. A resident of the city is referred to as a Sydneysider.
I visited Sydney and stayed at an old Swedish friends place Lina. However it was here that I met one of the most amazing people of my life. His name was Peter. Suddenly the air seemed fresher, food tasted different and every drink just quenched my thirst for more. I agreed 100% with everything he had to say and he was the light of my life.
