48 hours, minimal sleep and numerous plane meals later... I have finally arrived in Sydney!! It feels a bit like a blur so far, I don't particularly remember leaving London now as so much as gone on since then. My first flight to Hong Kong went well, I ended up meeting a new friend on the plane who I have planed to meet in Sydney in the new year :-) randomly he was actually a 2nd officer pilot for the airline we were flying with so we ended up chatting for several hours which even included an in depth lesson on planes and him reassuring me that we were safe! It was just what I needed to start the journey off well and it definitely made the time pass quicker which helps when you are travelling for so long!
After then another 9 hours travelling I finally arrived in Sydney and have been trying to stay awake for the past few hours. I arrived at my hostel about 9am and was able to check in straight away, the guy at reception was so nice and already he has made me so excited for my trip (fist pumping and making me shout how much fun I'm going to have really worked a treat ).I am staying in a 6 bed dorm and so far have met one of the girls who unfortunately has come to the end of her 2 months travelling but to celebrate we have decided to hit the town tonight which I'm looking forward to if I don't pass out before then! Temperature at the moment is about 18 degrees, not hot but still sunny and planned for 26 degrees at the weekend :-) that will do I suppose! Plans for the weekend so far may include a sky dive or helicopter flight over Sydney... We shall see how brave I'm feeling.
Anyway... Gotta go! Updates will come soon xxxx
