Finally i get a chance to update this!!! Im actually in Christchurch, New Zealand now but this diary entry is about Melbourne Australia.
I arrived in Melbourne last tuesday but didnt do toomuch for the frist few days because i had the cold. I took myself to the Immigration museum which was pretty cool and also the state libray which was massive! Also had a nosey round the shops and things like that. The hostel i stayed was really decent, Urban Central it was called. Nice clean rooms, good kitchen with every thing you need, free food and a bar downstairs. was only $23 a night which is about a 10er - cant go wrong! Michelle, Bex and Andi came into the city a few days after me so we all hooked up and went out and stuff. On the friday i went on a tour of the Great Ocean Road. Was a really long day but was worth it for the sites. Saw the 12 Apostles, ther is actually only 9 at the minute!, the 2 Orphans, Great Ocean Road, Bells Beach, Torquay - the surf capital of the world - this is where Rip Curl Headquarters are. Also Apollo Bay and went throught many little towns like Lorne. Was a really cool day and had a great time! Have some brill pics but iv tired uploading them and had no luck so il have to try sumwer else!
On the Friday night we met up in the bar for a few a drinks and to watch the band play. Then Saturday night we all got ready to go out, headed down stairs for a few drinks before goin somewer and then we actually didnt end up goin anywer jus stayed in our hostel bar having pool competitions and drinking! was a great wee night anyway! On Monday we had booked to go on the Neghbours night - this is a bar in St Kilda where you go and meet some of the stars of the show and watch Dr Karl's band play live. It was sooo funny, its mostly all UK& Ireland people cuz thats wer the show is the biggest. I met Dr Karl, Libby, Max and Dylan - have also got pictures of this but again cant get them uploaded here!! Grrrrr!! Karl's band Waiting Room where actually pretty decent but played mostly covers of all recent stuff. I said to him id have to go watch his band play in Mandela Hall in November for a laugh - see if he remembers me hahaha!!! So on Tuesday morning i was getting pickt up by the skybus at 730am, but my alarm didnt go off and i woke up at 725am!! needless to say i mist the bus and had to walk to the station with my backpack - it killed!! Then ther was a delay at Melbourne Airpirt and was queing for donkeys years!!! Finally reached mmy destination of Chrischurch, New Zealand at 9pm on Tuesday night.....and really glad to be here. I like it here already even though im on my own - everyone is lovely and even though it cold - its still nice!!! Hopefully get the pics up soon, love and hugs xo
