Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year!! sorry it has been so long since I last wrote on my blog, I have been very busy. I worked right up till xmas eve and then I had the xmas and new year holidays!!! anyways, I had a lovely xmas day, I spent it with a couple of friends at a beach house. Had really nice food, prawns, fish, turkey and the trimmings, really tasty dessert and lots of chocolates!!It was rather strange having xmas day in really hot weather, it seemed soo surreal to me when I was swiming in the ocean. It was a nice change from the cold of back home! I got lots of pressies from santa since I had been a very good girl hehehe!! Boxing day I spent it at Palm Beach (where they film Home and Away) I didn't see any famous actors but it was very cool to see the beach! For new year's I was not in Sydney! what you may gasp! well I had a choice of staying or spending it away in the country in Robertson (where they filmed Babe). I thought Sydney would have been fantastic but really overcrowded and very expensive, so I chose the latter. Anways since I am planning to stay here another year, I can see the fireworks in 2010. I had a great break in Robertson, I stayed in a farm house. It was very beautiful and it was nice to get away from the hussle and bussle of Sydney. I went up on the 30th and came back today! I went to the beach, did some shopping, saw some beautiful nature and animals,went sightseeing (saw a possum, glow worms, rabbits,etc ) had a barbaque on new year's eve with a couple of friends and generally had soo much fun! It was a memorable end to 2008. I am looking forward to 2009 as I get to move forward to my next destination. As I have mentioned before, I am wanting to extend my visa so I get to stay here another year! well, in order to do that I have to work on a farm for 3 months in a regional part of OZ. So that's what am doing next! I am off to Miriam Vale, in Queensland. I am flyging to Rockhampton and then catching the 2 hour bus journey to Miriam Vale. I am very excited as the farm looks really beautiful, check it out: wwww.glassfordcreekfarmstay.com.au I look forward to horse riding again and enjoying the natural way of life! It also a great location as I am only about 1 hour away from Whitsundays, Fraser Island and the Golden Coast!!!! So on my time off I hope to see all those places. I hope to snorkle, swim with dolphins and have a go at surfing!! So I got lots of new stuff which I will keep you updated. Please forgive me if I am slow at writing my next blog! I am not sure if I will have internet access on the farm and if there will be any facilities in the near town! I will try my best to write as often as I can!! Well, I got my packing done, oh yea I am flying tommorrow at 6.35am lol!! to Miriam Vale!! so am all ready to go on my next adventure! wish me luck!! well I will write again soon! over and out!!
