Hello all i trust you had a very merry christmas and a Happy New year.
Again we have done so much since we last wrote. Byron Bay was so cool spending all our days laying in the sun. On our last night there we had a bit of a messy one and we were only gonna drink water as we had to be up early for a bus the next day. It all went a bit wrong when we decided to have a drink with dinner really. It was our last night with Lydia before she goes home and i think we had a good one! Sarah and lydia managed to win a slave and lots of free drink in a bar....so by the time i (vicky) came back with our friends i had met they were both well gone...it was a really good night though.
After getting up really early for the bus we both weren't feeling too hot and a bus journey did not do us any favours. We arrived at surf camp where the weather was pretty crap and had to wait until 4 for our surf lesson as there were 150 people there the most they have ever had. We learnt how to stand up on the board on the beach then went to put into practice in the surf. We both fell off many a time but it was kind of fun...i did bruise my arse as a smacked down on the sand. Kind of enjoyed it but have decided im not really gonna make a surf chick plus dont really like the waves as they scare me!!!
After surf camp we had a long day journey to Sydney arriving at 6pm. The first sighting of the bridge and opera house was cool and a bit surreal. Settled into our hostel and found a woolworths so we could cook some dinner and grabbed an earlyish night.
Got up on Xmas eve not feeling very xmasie so went and bought a xmas hat but still didnt help...it shouldnt be warm at xmas. We did the girly thing and went shopping which is so good here in Sydney and we both really like it here such a cool city. Decided to treat ourselves to going to the theatre to see Billy Elliot on New years day whcih we are very excited about. Xmas eve was ok and we went for dinner in a fake Planet hollywood...which we didnt realise until we actually got in it with all the film memorabilia. We just went out to the Side bar under our hostel and decided we werent a fan especially as all our friends were spread out over the city so couldnt really meet up and we were basically on our own. We did make friends with the girls in our room which was cool but it was pretty much like a meat market in there and all the guys just dont leave the girls alone. I wouldnt mind if i didnt get all the weirdos trying to chat me up!!!!!!!!!!
Saw in Christmas and then went to bed ready to get picked up at 11am on Xmas day to have xmas on Bondi. Here you will have to wait for our fun over xmas as running out of time to finish but we still have so much more that we have done here so watch this space.
