Hello all, I am now in Australia… YAY!!! The sun is shining, the temperature is around 32oc and the place is great!
I met up with Pat the day I got here, which is good and he took me for a little tour around the local area around our hostel. Speaking of our hostel, we are staying in the Central YHA, which is a little expensive but is totally awesome!!! We even have a free swimming pool on the roof and a sauna… BLING! Photos to appear soon!
So anyway, when I arrived in Oz, the nice people at Barclays decided to block my bank card, which caused a bit of an issue as I had no money! Luckily I was able to sort it out with a quick phone call. I went to bed early and woke up late the next day ha ha, but felt much better for it.
Yesterday Pat and I did a big shop for food and supplies, a much cheaper way to live compared to eating out all the time! Again we just walked around the city and enjoyed the views. In the evening we went to the Domain to watch the ‘Sydney Festival 2007 symphony in the Domain’ performance. It was really good and it ended with a little fireworks display. A good night was had by all, and I took some night photographs of the city on the way back to the hostel.
Today we got up nice and early and had breakfast and we still haven’t decided what to do today. I think we will perhaps check out the Sydney Museum or something.
So until I have some more interesting things to say I shall bid you all farewell.
Jersey aka John.
