Why hello again!
Not used to this updating regularly lark!
So Monday I went to Nimbin with Jim's Alternative Tours and it was a very surreal day! We were taken to this hippy haven in the middle of nowhere being told stories and played music! We stopped at a pub about 11.30am to eat some macadamia nuts and buy booze to drink on the bus! Got to Nimbin in time for lunch that consisted of wraps and cookies for dessert. In the afternoon we went to visit this strange bloke called Paul who lives on 80 acres in the middle of the country with loads of junk! He was completely stoned and very very wierd! Got back to Byron about 6pm and didn't do anything that evening.
Yesterday, I had to check out of my room for 10am so I just hung around on the beach most of the day and I got burnt. But unevenly. ie in one strip up one leg and on one arm. I was lying on my side! In the afternoon I read my book sat in a hammock seat overlooking the hostel pool and then I ate a BBQ with an Irish couple who had to eat their food before leaving today! Handy for me! Left to get the bus for 8.45pm and arrived in to Brisbane soon after 11pm after a little snooze on the bus. I slept all the way from Surfers Paradise to Brisbane - about 1.5 hrs. Managed to get on a train to the station near my hostel and walked the 10 mins here so was in bed by 12.30am.
Again, had to get up to check out for 10am this morning but I've got to get to the airport anyhoo. Am getting the free shuttle to the Transit Centre and then the AirTrain so that I can be nice and early to catch my flight. I don't want a manic rush through town like when I was leaving Sydney! My flight is at 2.45pm and I'm going to be at the airport soon after 12noon. Have got 25 mins before I leave and 15 mins internet time left so not going too badly so far!
Am already booked in to Sleepy Sams Guesthouse in Singapore for 4 nights and I've got directions and the door code to get in all printed out ready for me as I don't arrive there until late. On Sunday I'm flying to KL ready to explore Malaysia which I may get to see more of than I planned since the situation in Thailand is a bit dodge. Am going to have to play it by ear as to whether or not I can go to Thailand. My flight is actually booked out of Bangkok but goes via Singapore so may have rearrange this somehow if necessary. Am really annoyed as I was really looking forward to Thailand but I don't want to go anywhere dangerous. Will laze on the beach in Malaysia and explore everywhere that I didn't have time for before. Should be good.
Not sure which mobile phone to use now I'm leaving Oz. My Aussie mobile still has credit on it for a bit unlike my UK one and I really don't have the money to recharge it. Will just be on the net I think. Lots of places give free internet which is awesome!
Well its goodbye to Australia and its very sad! Am definately going to have to come back and do it properly! Will take 3 months on a tourist visa and just travel around NOT getting stuck in Melbourne for 5 months! Although I wouldn't change what I've done for the world as everyone I met in Melbourne made me stay there! I was having such a fab time there why move on?!
Well nuff said for now.
Love ya xx
