Arrived in Sydney yesterday after a long drive from Byron Bay... am staying in the Wake Up Hostel - which is pretty cool. Have one of the girls and one of the guys from the tour in my room, which is handy. Took a short wander around the area surrounding the hostel and brought some food to cook dinner for 4 of us! (The hostel has a kitchen) Then went to bed.... I think I was still recovering from Byron Bay.
Today me and Nadine took ourselves on "Mel and Squirts Grand Walking Tour of THE WHOLE OF SYDNEY" We left our hostel at 10am and returned around 5pm - I am shattered. We walked through the botantical gardens where we saw some cool parrot like birds and a whole heap of bats in the trees. We then walked to the Sydney Opera House, went in and declined a tour as it was a rip off, plus looks much better from a distance. We then walked through The Rocks and sorted out so Nadine could book onto the same Bridge Climb as me! Then we had lunch followed by a Krispe Kreme Donut!! (I think thats how its spelt) This was my first Krispe Kreme experience - and I liked it!! YUMMY!
I then dragged Nadine to the Aquarium which was cool! I found Nemo & Co! Walked through a scary tunnel which surrounds you with sharks, giant Sting-Rays, turtles etc etc - this was cool! On the walk back with booked a trip to the Blue Mountains with Oz Experience - which should be a fun day.
Tomorrow we are going to try and go to the Northern Beaches - fingers crossed I might get to see where Home & Away is filmed - I have a strong feeling this may be a highlight of my whole trip...... or maybe it will just make Zoe and Claire very jealous!! I will try and get a part as an extra!
Anyway best go take a shower before I hit the bars of Sydney!
Will update again from Sydney soon
