We're finally in Australia!!! So we're now on our forth currency, forth country and forth week.
The first day we got picked up from the airport about 8 in the morning and just crashed out in our hostel room. We were sharing with two Scottish girls, an English guy with chessy feet and a Swiss girl. It was called Calypso Inn, a really nice hostel with a pool and a $9 all you can eat buffet at night. so after a long sleep we got some grub, called home and walked about half an hour to find somewhere that sold cookies at 10 o'clock at night. Of course that was the petrol station and we noticed how expensive everything is here.
The we walked along the Esplanade to discover a gorgeous public pool by the beach called the Lagoon. You can't really go on the beach because it's mud flats and the sae is too far out. So for the next two days we chilled by the pool and worked on our tans.
On our last night in Calypso Inn, we paid for a private room as it was only 1pound50 more. Only to discover we were better off in the shared room and the guy with smelly feet (Rob) had moved out anyway. Honestly you could smell his feet through his trainers!! When we checked out of Calypso Inn, we made the 15-20 minute walk to Njoy, another but cheaper hostel. It felt like we were walking forever with our backpacks on in the blistering heat. We got a four shared dorm which had a fridge and sink in our room...luxury! But there was a disguisting cockcroach on Scarlett's bag. Still, this hostel was 9pound a night and too expensive if we were staying for a month so we walked about for the day to find one called A1 Inn that was 6pound a night and booked ourselves in for the night after. For the rest of the day we chilled by the Lagoon.
