Was a really long drive from the airport at midnight aus time. was driving through the bush, such quiet roads, We were thinking where the heck are we going. we are right by the island phillip island, where the bridge goes over.
The friends place we are staying at is amazing, such great views. love it! Us both couldnt sleep last night again we havent had a proper night sleep since leaving the uk.
Our first day, Ben who lives here took us to the main street, to show us around. Later went to the beach. it is so hot. everyone seems so happy and chilled. and a lot of fitties lol!
Nai ate a fish with the head still on, that was a bloody experience for her!
We went to a Wildlife sanctuary saw heaps of auss wildlife the koalas, kangaroos, dingos, emus, platapus, tazmanian devils, wombats.
Had a chilled day at the beach and then return later for a family bbq. ended up mixing the alcohol tho, had wisky shots so wasnt to good.
yep had boat trip today, we thought we were going to be sick after last night but we were both fine. We went across to phillip island to catch the kasey lee boat which my friends dad owns. We went out to see the nobbies (some caves) and to the seals. There was loads of them 13,000 either sitting in the sun or playing in the water. The young sound like sheep. later that evening we went to the penguin parade what phillip island is famous for - they are the littlest penguins in the world - so cute watching them waddle up the hill to there burrels.
Had a chilled out day at the beach again. kasey the daughter of who we are staying with came home from uni and took us out into town. We tried to drink beer to fit in with aussies, but we struggled and returned to our wine! well this was an event! not with our normal group of people to be honest! ended up being with a group of druggies with piercings every where and most had dreadlocks! haha we didnt quite no what to do sitting there with our wine so we just kept drinking! then an arguement started so we had to quickly move on. haha this next place was like brighton walkabout. but there dancing was actually mental, they just dont care! they would literally jump from one side to the other.
We went to a 'Amazin Things' park which had illusions and a maze. Some things were a spin out and made you really dizzy. Meg dares the vertical slide with kasey although it was really scary! Had to wear a cool like mechanic all-in-one jumpsuits! haha! Went out into cowes on philip island with kasey and Marley. This club was more our scene... had such a good night. We were up on the podium shaking our thing :) was mental! Marley is actually crazy, she got her leg over the bar of the podium and everyone was cheering her on!
We went the the 'chill festival' on churchill Island it was imense! We hadnt heard of any of the bands but they were very famous here. We soon got into their music though, dancing away. John Butler was amazing! We bumped into to a few of the neighbours cast :) had a picture with them. We got a little overexcited by this. haha! It was such a nice day, really good weather and the best festival we've ever been to.
Had a go at surfing, was eventful!
Quite sad to be leaving, had such a great time here but got lots organised for next week in Rosebud and Melbourne.
