Sydney Part one!!
After our 10 hour drive from Melbourne to Sydney in my first automatic car, we drove through the night where we almost ran out of gas / petrol (just trying to sound australian) and we only had about 10 km left in the tank...not good, we made it to Sydney safe and sound but ridiculously tired. i drove about 500km of the 864km on only 35 mins sleep. Not the easist thing to do but i was excited so it kept me awake.
That night we went over to Bondi to meet up with the boys and had a few drinks over there. Nothin too heavy coz i was running on empty after having about 3 hours sleep at this point. Dreadful...and that was just Jade! ha.
Moved into our not so glorious hostel the next day in a place called Kings Cross. Its renound for good night life but also strippers and prostitutes so that was nice. Didnt realise that until we got here though coz the boys had sorted our accomodation out, maybe thats why they chose here! had another night out that night with some of the boys and Jade and spent quite a few days on the various beaches in the sunny hot weather. Sorry guys, i know you're pretty much in the minus there but its gorgeous weather over here and the Fiji tan is almost back after I lost it in not so sunny Melbourne.
As GMTV film every year in Sydney for the New Year, we decided to head over to the spot where they were fliming to see if we could get on camera, Danny managed to and got a telling off from Ben Shepherd who was sat live on the couch in the UK coz he knocked a poor little girl out of the way to get on the camera! ha. After that we walked over to the Opera House for my first proper sighting of it! Photos do not do it justice, it is amazing and unbelievable. We had a cocktail in the Opera Bar, nearly broke the bank but when in Rome....
Christmas Eve was very eventful. we did a booze cruise which took us from the harbour for four hours and then back to a bar. Well, i barely remember steping on board the boat at 7pm and i most certainly do not remember stepping back off at 11. not sure what happened but probably the vodka and wine. Oh well, its Christmas and what would it be without a ltittle christmas cheer?! Well it would've been worse but by an accident whilst i was leaning over the side of the boat, Dan knocked a half full (not half empty) bottle of wine out of my hand and straight into the sea. Oops. Didnt make it to the bar after the boat had docked either, i decided that the 40 minute walk home (when you're drunk...20 mins when you're sober) would be a good idea and i almost rang everyone in my phonebook coz it was past midnight at that point and my Christmas. I'm sure they all appreciated it. Amazing that i made it home really coz a couple of night previous i got slightly lost and Jade and Ry ahd to come rescue me. I was actually on the next street but had no idea. Alcohol is bad. Vodka is good.
Christmas day was a hungover one. Me and Danny got up and made bacon butties for everyone and then beofre our christmas dinner at 3, we made a small stop off at McDonalds - classy - just for a little burger. Very festive. Then we had Christmas dinner which wasnt great at all but at least it was somethin. Then we headed over to Bondi Beach to soak up the drunken atmosphere whilst we all stayed completely sober for once. It was boilin hot and there were people everywhere. The perfect christmas day when its not spent at home with the family. To top the day off we went for a pizza and then I could barely breath and the top button had to be undone. Nice.
Sydney Part 2 is coming shortly with the New Year etc. until then ...lots of love and kisses xxxxxxxxxx
