Welcome to the new and revised version of 'ickles blog'. Due to a recent complaint logdged by a Miss Bunnifer Briggs, I have now insured the new management is now sober (polished off a hefty 6glasses of wine last time, which may explain why the account sounded like something a 5 year olds account...and then, and then!! I suffered the next day for those celebrations I can tell you....blame Hadley getting a job)!! So hopefully this version will be easier to read, with a touch of humour while still keeping you in touch with what Im doing here! Any further complains Bunny, please put on a postcard and keep in a safe place untill i have a permanent address!!!
Week 8 of ickles tour (can u believe it, ive been away 2 months, so who is missing me?? if so lots of messages of facebook telling me please!!)
Current location: Manly Beach, a beautiful ferry ride just 30 minutes of Sydney.
Current time and reason for not being at the pub: Middnight..and because this hostel rocks and you dont need to go to the put to enjoy being sociable (plus having a nite on the water again)
Productive acitivities achieved today: Getting up. Talking (I seem to have a bit of a reputation for this already....mmmm) Going to a travel agent, and walking out more confused about what to do then before!! Getting credit. Writing this blog page for the second time....bloody pcs logging me off!!
Cash spent today: $5 on sushi rolls (new FAVO thing, altho they didnt havent my fav which is salmon and avocado...grrrr) $5 milk (for my porridge) carrots (Im back on them Hads!!) and water (detox!).
Cash spent yesterday (not as good): $140 on new hair (love telling the boys that, their mouths drop.....do they think us girls were born with nicely shaped bouncy hair, with golden highlights!!) $8 on two glasses of red wine followed by lots of water!! $3.20 on sushi rolls (cheaper in the city) $12.80 on ferry ride (loved coming back tipsy at nite, so much fun with turbulance, cheap adrenalin rush!!
Time of going to bed after a VERY randomly nite of crazy dancing: 5am
Number of times this week been woken up early by fire alarm in last 3 days: twice....grrr!!
Number of cockroaches seen in this hostel: 2 (ive learnt not to step on them tho, apparently if they are female they will lay their eggs and then there will be 50!)
Number of snakes seen in the toilet: one, altho i think it was plastic, but wasnt gona take the risk!
Total cash spent this whole trip to date....dont want to check!!
Number of days sunny enough to spend sunbathing so far: 1/2...WHERE IS THE SUN!!
Number of friends made first nite of hostel: 0
Number of friends made by 2nd nite of hostel: 3 wicked ppl, a crazy geordie and two dutch girls who are THE best cooks!!
Number of ppl I say hi to by 3rd nite: everyone!!
Number of road trips to the beach: 1....went to palm beach where they filmed home and away...it rained!!
Number of time i've changed my mind about what im planning to do in the next month in terms of travelling: 46 (and thats jst today)!!
Current plan as of 2 hours ago: Change flight to go to Cairns end of next week (apparently it rains in Dec) then travel down coast, maybe spend xmas in Byron and new years in sydney.
Chance of plan changing by 9am tomrrow morning: 0% (ill be sleeping, well unless fire alarm goes off)
Chance of plan changing by 11am tomrrow morning 100%!!
Todays words of wisdom: Always put ure milk in the fridge before they lock the kitchen at 10pm!
Best free things ive blagged this week: Free $30 toner to go with my hair, I said I couldnt afford it as a backpacker so the they guy put it on for free anyway!! Free sauce with my kebab the other day as well!! Oh and free internet time....all abou the ppl u know!
Missing from home: Music out load (altho i did sing on the ferry ride coz the wind drowned out my voice). My wardrobe and being creative with clothes, really hard with the same two tops.....i spose i could wear it backwards! Of course all you guys goes without saying!
So thats pretty much me up to know!! A few hurdles I came across were the fact this hostel and every other hostel is fully booked (combined with very expensive) at xmas and new years, which has influenced where ill be then! Im having a fabulous time this week, and have met some awesome ppl here! Wasnt happy with my hostel in Sydney for a few reasons: 1-overpriced due to my lack of booking 2-small, hot room not helped by the hangover i had 3 no one in the hostel talked to me 4 the tin opener was broken (all i had to eat was spag on toast (without a ringpull, schoolboy)!! and most importantly 5 someone STOLE my olives, that finished it off!! HAHA!!
Hope everyone is well, any questions send them to me via facebook of my email ([email protected]) and ill include them in my next blog......altho if i dnt like them i just may forget to include them!!! So that includes all of ures bunny!! Haha!!!
