Well good day mate.
Sorry its been a while with a full day of travelling and a full day of chilling not really had much to talk about.
Well here i am in Melbourne. What a great place.
Since my last update in Melaka, the satay place wasnt open so we went to this Tandoori place where they cook it on front of you we had loads of food and drink and it came to about 3 pound each (the best tandoori i have eaten by miles) we then spent our last night in KL and got talking to some girls from Huddersfield that were amazed by Thailand and were telling us the do's and donts and a couple of girls from Blackpool, we stayed up and watched some of the hangover with them and then the next morning set off on our trip down under.
The flight was awfull i dont think i will ever fly with air asia long haul ever again. I kid you not we could not move in our seats it was worse than ryan air and in the whole 8 hour flight we were given one free drink and one meal. When we finally arrived in Melbourne we spent about and hour and half walking around looking for our hostel and went in the wrong direction we ended up walking 22 blocks instead of the 2 we were suppose to (robs fault- he will kill me when he sees this) so when we arrived at 3.30 in the morning with our heavy bags i was ready for bed and exhausted.
The hostel we stayed in on the first two nights - Elephant backpackers , was awfull. Dirty toilets, no eletric in rooms, no interent unless you paid lots to use it and walls that didnt reach the ceiling so you could hear everything. After spending the first night there we decided that we had to get drunk to cope another night - And that we did! We spent the next day walking around and getting a bairrings then hit the ale at about 4. Everything is so expensive here its ridiculous - If i dont get a job in Sydney soon not sure how long my money will last. We managed to find a free BBQ and went there and had a few more Jugs of Beer and a rather big debate about Wacko jacko which then led to our first big argument! Well at least its cleared the air now - It was only a matter of time. About bloody Jacko though LOL!
We have now booked into a lovely hostel thats a bit more money down the road for three nights - Flinders street hostel and have checked the room out and it seems ok so we are happy.
Today we spent the day at St Kilda. We did orginally plan to have a chilled day on the beach but it was rather windy on the beach and not the warmenst so had a walk and then came back to the city. We have a few more nights here and i love it. A great city, full of hip people and cool bars, cafes and restaurants. There is lots to do here but just dont know how much of it we can realistically afford. We are hopefully going to do a 3 or 4 day trip through great ocean road - coming back here then heading to Sydney so ill keep you posted on that. The trips seem reasonable as they include travel, food, accomodation and activities and they head from Melbourne to adelaide.
Again thanks for the messages. Keep in touch and ill keeep you posted,
