Ok i now what you r all thinking have i not left Sydney since i got here!!! Well i have been to melbourne which had its internatinal comady festivel on which is just like the Edinburgh one. We got thier by overnight train almost as bad as the Tour bus to Solu just to give some of you the an idea of the travel pain i have been through. So the train took 11 hours and i was sitting beside a Guy called Ray who had servied in the second world war and what can you say what a guy some great stories and some that made you wonder whats the point of the whole thing was. Well anyway Melbourne was great had lots of fun as we went to Ramsay street now that was cool really enjoyed that and it was well worth the money. So after that we did a few walk around tours and just meet people. I tell you a little story of how we meet Shane and Shona in the pub while waiting for Emmas friend Michelle to turn up it goes something like this - So me and Donald got to the pub a wee bit early as you know its important to get the first pint in so we did now we were waiting for a table to come free and after about 5 mins it did so we jumoped at the chance to sit and enjoy the atmosphere in the pub. So as we were sitting at a table by the window which had 4 cahirs at it an Aussie lady (shona) came and asked if anyone was sitting thier of course thier wasent and so we offered her the seats. Her husband soon arrived to fill the other seat. So we started to chat as all Aussie seem to be very friendly and so we found out that the drive we had the nxt day was going to take us through thier home town were they both grew up so they recommended us a few places to go and so we did we popped into see shonas dad who ran a pub in a tiny little town were about 1,000 people live it was fun. So he was amazed when we told him we had meeet his daughter the night b4. So we had a drink and then went to the local fish and chip shop for tea now while in thier waiting for r dinner a guy came in (who was Russel (shona's dad) ) brother in law and asked if he could get a lift to the next town where we were heading so ofcoures we offered a lift and what an intresting guy he was he was alabourer and told use we could make upto 30dollors and hours so thats what we r aming for. So anyway we got to egales point were we stayed the night befor driving up the coast to get to canberra were we spent a night b4 headin to the blue mountians and then back to Sydney have a look on a map its a long way.
