I was in Sydney two weeks ago and donated a fair amount of time to just wandering the streets; my favourite Sydney past time!

The Strand is a quaint old shopping arcade that has been loving restored whilst still retaining its beautiful Victorian-style architecture and furnishings.

You can enter from either George Street or Pitt Street.  Haigh’s Chocolates is at the George Street entrance; deliciousness guaranteed!

Which way to go?  Up or down? Decisions, decisions, decisions!

On every level there are plenty of shops to browse through or you can just find yourself a fancy bench seat and chill for a bit as you watch the passing parade!

Another chocolate shop.  I don’t believe that having two in the one arcade is a problem 🙂
