We havent written in a while, we spent the last week almost in Byron bay the hippie town on oz lol. We got there on friday night and checked into holiday village hostel which was across the road from the main backpackers bar in town so that was gd, once checked in we got ready to go out with the oz bus and realised our new camera wasnt working so that wasnt a bit annoying but anway we met up with the oz lot in the cheeky monkeys bar and got cheap dinners and free drink through oz experience so that was gd but we didnt have a late one as we were boith tired.
The next day i woke up not feeling very well, but we thought we would take the trip up to the byron lighthouse anyway as it was free to walk up there and was supposed to be gd, we didnt quite relise how long it took tp walk there but we left at 1 and didnt get back til 4 30 lol. Before we set off anyway we went to the camera shop to see if he could fix our camera but he couldnt so we bought a new one, we got another waterproof one but fuji instead of olympus as our last two have been olympus lol. The walk was really gd we walked along the beach to the first look out where we saw some dolphins, we then stopped for lunch at the pass cafe which was really nice and then carried on the walk through the byron cape and up past the most easterly point to the top where the lighthouse was, the veiws where amazing and we got some gd pics. We saw tons of dolphons on our way so we were really pleased with that lol.
We had another early night that night after i wasnt feeling well and the next day we went to the sunday market, which was really gd and intresting, it was full of hippies and hippie stalls and music. We then sat around for a while with not alot to do before getting some dinner and heading out to a club called the rails that night, it was really gd they had a live band, which where brilliant and there was loads of hippies dancing around lol.
The next day we booked our hostel for another 2 days but thought we'd go into an appartment where you shared with about 6 people but got ur own bathroom, kitchen and living area with telly and dvd. This was much better than the shared rooms because you didnt have to walk across to the toilets and showers and stuff and you had your own front room bit. When we got there it was just two other people in our room, laura and ollie they where really nice and doing pretty much the same trip us off but in 3 months and missing out new zealand. We sat and watched a film with them in the morning and then they went to do the lighthouse walk whilst we watched there other films that they'd hired the night before.
That night we all had a drink in our appartment before going over to cheeky monkeys about 11 and we had such a gd night lots of dancing and drinking lol. The next day we all felt so ill, and me and kev had booked a snorkelling tour for the next morning so up we got after not going to bed till 4 lol and walked to the snorkelling office where we got our wet suits and things before heading out to julian rocks to do our snorkelling.
Unfortunately kev took a turn for the worse lol and spent the whole trip almost being sick over the side of the boat lol not before he nearly headbutted a logger head trutle swimming back to the boat tho lol, i didnt see it but he said it was massive, the boat man shouted it out to him just before he was about to swim into it lol. I saw two little turtles whilst i was snorkelling but he visibillity wasnt very clear and all of the sudden i started spotting tiny jelly fish near me and got a bit freaked out lol so swam away to find more before deciding to get out of the water lol, the boat man said they wouldnt sting me but i wasnt risking it and the water was really choppy and i couldnt see much. So overall we both spoent about 10/15 minutes in the water out of our whole trip lol but we saw turtles so we where happy lol.
The next day we got our bus from byron at 8 in the morning so nice and early, we where so tired and we made our trip to the surf camp where we'd get our free lessons :) xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
