Lets take this gig global!!
well, hello to you all. I had to cut my last update a bit short as my internet time was running out so just popping a quick update now to cover the bits and bobs that I missed out. This is my official last update from Melbourne as I am heading to Sydney tonight on the overnight bus and just in case you didnt realise, Steve my travel partner for the past 4 months has already made his way upto Aires Rock so im now travelling on my todd!! Gonna be a little weird but looking forward to it aswell. Well, since my last update I've covered a bit more of the touristy stuff here in Melbourne. Went to the NGV Australian Art Gallery on saturday which was impressive especially all the Aboriginal stuff. Then caught the free circular tram and just hopped off at all the sights I hadnt seen yet. Took a stroll along the Docklands and Harbour then visited the famous Queen Victoria Market which was surprisingly cheap with tonnes of bargains up for grabs but being the stingy backpacker I still couldnt afford any of them!! then checked out Brunswick St in the arvo which has got a real nice chilled feel and an arty farty kinda vibe!! Geordie Steve and I then met up with Craig and Anna (the scottish couple we first met in Delhi!!- god that seems like a lifetime ago!!) at their hostel where they cooked us dinner then we took advantage of the $2 pints in happy hour and watched the Arsenal-Spurs match. We then headed into town and met up with a few of the peeps from our hostel and ended up drinking until about 7:30am!! So as you can imagine my head was a little sore yesterday and Im now officially going Tea Total for the next few days/weeks!! (honest mum!!). Packed up all my stuff this morning then trying to send a parcel home which could put a big dent in the wallet. This arvo Im gonna cruise the town with Steve and a Canadian lass called Jess before my bus leaves later. So yeah better go as Im gonna attempt to put the Thailand pics onto the site! So check 'em out and enjoy. Next stop Sydney!! Dan
