We got to Brisbane about half 1 on Friday...after being stuck away in a town with absolutly no life when we were driving through the city on the bus we got excited about near enough everything...ooohh look theres a starbucks...ooooo shops, anyone would think it was the first time we were being let out! We near enough put out bags in our mates dorm and hit the shops! It was a city after all with hundreds of shops so we just thourght it would be rude not to!
A new outfit later and feeling a little guitly about spending more money on clothes (after constantly moaning that my backpack is already way to heavy) we met up with lesley our Irish friend we met in Cairns..She lives here and has a flat so she offered for us to come and stay with her! Its so nice staying in a clean, warm place and being able to get my clothes out my backpack without having the need to wash them! So I took full advantage of a washing machine, Nice shower and straightners! I got so excited about actually being able to blow dry and straighten my hair ive done evreryday since ive been here cos i know it wont last long!
Friday night we hit the town as a couple of people weve been travelling with the last week were leaving! after a bit of a hanging saturday morning we managed to drag oursleve to Southbank markets and againi 'Treated' myself to a little bit, spent about 8 dollas in the most awesome sweet shop! But I bourght a pressie for mummy so it wasnt so bad!
Sat night we were planning to stay in but a couple of Lesleys Irish friends come over, and after a little persuading we were out again! Was a really good night, Went to a club called fridays! bit posh really and 9 dollas a drink, i come home with no money in my purse!
We woke up sunday with the intention of doing absoltly nothing and that we did! We got a film from blockbusters, doritoes and dip and had a girlie night!
Today on monday we went to Steve Irwins Australian Zoo which just wicked!!!!!! Had such a good day, we fed elephants cuddled a koala and i got bit by a spider!!!!!!! didnt just bite me once it bit 3 times the little b******! I noticed something bit me so i grabbed it down my top and i was holding a little spider...I honestly was really scared cos everyone talks bout deadly spiders i just thourght O dear! I come up in a red rash and had three whites dots on my belly! We went an found a first aider who put some anti-someting on it and gave me an ice pack! I asked her if i was going to be ok and she just said well if you start to be short of breath come back to me! i was really thinking oh great then!!!
I feel Okay now but when i think about it i go really light headed, but i think its just physcological!!
Were off to Surfers Paradise tomoz and were going to stay there for four nights! They have a few theme parks, like warner world and sea world! Should be good but more more more money which seems to be dreacreasing rapidly!
Only 3 more stops until Sydney babe Yeh!!!!!!!!!!!!
