well hello there guys and girls...
So i have left the beachside resort of Bonid, that was last week. Had two peaceful, relaxing days there then got the bus and train (with all my crap) back to city centre and then walked (with all my crap) to my hotel! I will be a woman on strength when ever i return! haha.
Staying at YHA Railway st. Luckily it's next to central railway st. It's nice and it's an old rail way section, so i sleep in a carriage! it's madness but pretty funny!
Been having a pretty busy time at moment as have lots of mates here, well did and still do have a few. My two irish buddies, where flying to new z on Wed last week so we had mon/tues to hang out and party.
Monday we met up and went for nice breakfast at darling harbour, i had eggs bennedict with spinach and hollandaise sauce...was lovely!mmmmm.... then we went to the aqua world, like deep sea world but 10 times cooler. It was huge!! i got my photo taken with Bruce from finding nemo! it's a very cool photo that one day you guys might see if i get around to doing somethinhg about putting pics online...i might try tonight for yous..! We spent all morning there. Was lots of fun. Then we wandered down to circular Quay and got the ferry over to Manly! They had 2 irish mates there so we where going to meet them. We got on ferry and sadly it started raining and going very black. Got there met there mates and went for apparently Australia's best ice cream ever! I had 2scoopes, it was immense. Rum and Raisin & chocolate with chips....got whipped cream on it too...yes i will be fatter when i return...
That night got ferry back and i checked into hostel. Not exciting.
Tues, i was soooo sleepy so slept in and decided just to meet Aine and Rach in evening for dinner. So i went to the wildlife park that day, was pretty cool but not soo much fun on your own. Bob was txting saying he wished he was there with me, that would have made it bit more exciting, rather than looking myself... ach well, we still have our edinburgh zoo passes to use before April next year so will do that next year! yippee.
Met girls in Scary Marys pub at night for $10 dinner adn free pint. Lots of cheap dinner options for backpackers if you look hard enough. There 2 irish mates from manly came too. After few drinks we went to irish bar called TB oriley or something. Was cool. I drank Jamiesons irish whisky (Aime and me kept arguing cause i said it was fake whisky and not real like scottish stuff), made Smiff and Bob proud! Then the girls ordered these amazing irish crisps, 'Tators' oh my god. They were amazing. They were also drinking 'orange pop' and vodka, they haven't been home in a while and still have 9months to go so they where lapping up the things they miss from home. It was a fun evening. Guys from Manly left to catch last ferry home and we continued the last night party to Scruphy Murphys, as you may have guessed, another irish bar.
We got in and it was packed, so we stood next to stage and then live band was coming on soon. We stocked up on drink and before we knew it a old cover band was on, playing blink 182, greenday, counting crows, lots of other cover favs and we where dancing around, being drunk and making a total fool of ourselves but having the best night ever. We met some folk from Scotland, a lass from Boness!! (i couldn't belive it!) guy from town. They hung with us for while then around 2am we decided to call it night and head home, they did have flight at 9am in morning! :)
They are now safely in New Z and have a flat sorted and are both looking for teaching jobs now. I have been told im going to Dublin when they get back and stay with them, they have been told they can come adn sleep on Bobs couch and i can show them scotland. Deal.
Wednesday morning. I just wanted to sleep. But i was meeting Aimee at 11am. Aimme is Australian lass i met through Thailand tour... so we met up and walked to Hyde park. Wandered there, catching up and chatting away. Then we went to Botanical gardens and done the same. Took pics and just wanderd gossiping. Was lovely and weather was nice. After that we went to opera house and hung around there for while and then went to get sushi for lunch. We both done bit shopping, i bought dresses for my dress addiction. Departed our separate ways for dinner, meeting her on Fri afternoon for Cinema, we're seeing Australia.
Thurs i wandered the city, took in the sights and shopped...opps. Had quiet night on Thurs, still suffering from surf camp! im weak, what can i say.
Fri, met Aimme after lazy morning and we went to cinema. Film was really good. I really enjoyed it and recommend it to all. Fri night i chilled and spoke to Bob.
Saturday, i went to the markets! Paddys market in morning, looking at the stuff and wandering. Then i wandered all they way to Circluar Quay and went to Rocks market, was amzing! soo much nice stuff, pricey too but still. IT was getting soo hot though. Unlike Paddys, this market was not indoors. Out in heat and it was a max of 33degrees on Sat.
Sat night i was meeting Aimee for drinks and dancing. We went to Scruphys murphys to see if they had band on, they did but not to 11pm. So we stayed for good few glasses of wine and chat then went to 3 monkeys for more wine and chatting, just different scene. Then back to Murphys for the band. Lasted till maybe 1am then we went for subway, ate and chatted then walked back to my hostel. Aimee got bus home and i went to bed! shattered!
Today i have had lazy day, washing, needed to do it desperately! tidying crap in my room. Then Bob called, it is late sat night./sun morning when he called and he was coming home from pub with Giz. We had nice big chat for while till i told him to go to bed and sleep, he is playing footie at 12noon on Sunday and it was now 2:30am scottish time and he was planning on scoring goals. I wish him luck for that one.
Looking at going to Blue mountains this week, Aimee might come with as she is staying in Syndey the now, looking for work and hasn't found any yet...economic stuff and all that. argh i dont want to face job hunting back home, i heard woolworths went bust! madness! Got no plans for when, just looking at this week, get day that suits both. Still got sights to see in Sydney, so heading to where Aimee is staying i think, Glebe area, trendy district or something...Anyhoo, i have to go, i got notice saying i had 15mins remaining few mins ago...dont want it to cut off mid type!! eeek!
will speak soon, missing you all, not the cold though!
lots of love pamela xxx
