Danielles Little Vacation
Hi all, Well it seems an age ago since i last wrote a journal entry as i seem to have trekked to so many different places! After melbourne we headed back to sydney but just for the night as on thursday we made our way up to a little place called Newcastle in an attempt to break up some of our drives up the coast! Newcastle was nice enough just a little place, however our hostel was a dump, there were cockroaches, damp, mould and it was dirty!! I think our good run of nice hostels couldn't last forever, but it has taught me and evey never to book a hostel without seeing photos on the internet again!!! Urgh!!!!!!!!!!! The only plus side is that we got tickets to get free food at this nice pub!! Yesterday (saturday) we went on a day trip to Mayla Lake and beach, where i took the first steps on my mission of becoming a pro surfer - all of which was captured on my disposable waterproof camera - so get ready for the giggles!!! We also attempted sand boarding and kayaking - which i can do from camp!! We met some aussie girls on the trip who were crazy - i was fearing for their safety!!! It was a long but extremely fun day which was a bonus as last night we were back on the overnight bus upto Byron Bay! The hostel here is really nice its more like a complex and theres lots to do as its a surf town (perfecting my new talent!!!!) however just one problem ITS RAINING and there doesn't seem much sign of it clearing up any time soon - which is crazy i'm in australia - it doesn't rain here!! Oh well, i may just have to have a couple of malibu's to pass the time - only for medicinal purposes though mummy! Ok going to shower now i've been in this outfit for like 5 days or something equally stupid (20hours)!! Take care Build me a snowman and text me photos!! And keep your fingers crossed this rain stops soon - as i may melt!! Missing you all All my love The pro surfer ps - saw the biggest spider in the world the other day!! It was the size of my hand - needless to say there was slight freaking - i'm so not a proper traveller!!!!!
