So after the 14 hour slog from Dubai to Sydney I have arrived...and it doesn't look much different from sunny Wiltshire! It's absolutely hammering it down and has been ever since I landed, although it is still 20 odd degrees so cant complain too much.
I'm just chilling in the lounge area as its too wet to go out, and I have now been awake solidly or 18ish hours. Strangely I don't feel jet lagged, yet anyway.
Hostel seems nice enough - clean but basic. I have a veeeery Irishman in my drom who seems like a nice bloke, going for a beer later I think...after he has got back from a UFC fight weight in..?!
P.s. completely cocked up the iPod music, so will be repeatedly listening to the same small variety on my phone...chief numpty!
