Where do i start... so much has happened since i was last on here and that was only a week ago! I'll try not waffle too much.
So we got up early last thurs to get the bus from melbourne to take a 3 day trip to Sydney! The Aus experience drver/tour guide/entertainer etc... was cool, hes name was Luke but known as gollum cause he done the best impression ive ever heard!!
There was only 10 on the mini bus, we had an old danish couple, and youngish dutch couple, a singaporian, a french and 2 blokes our age steve who was scottish and Wes who was welsh (from the mumbles!!) We ended up having a good time with them 2 the others were alot more tame! There was a fair bit of driving but lots of site seeing too!! We went to a number of places including Wilsons Prom, Lakes entrance and Jindabine! We went to a real secluded beach called squeaky beach cause the sand squeaked when you walked on it surprisingly!! This as really nice and like a child i am i went of climbing up the rocks too! We also done wake boarding and a long walk into the mountains where there was still some snow, and saw lots of kangaroos and koalas on the way! We had accomodation for 2 nites which was eventful, i wont go into details! On the final day we wemt to canberra before getting to Sydney where we visited the war memorial plus other things! Only problem was during the whole 3 days there was lots of rain :(. Got to Sydney at bout 6pm on saturday.. had accomodation booked at a backerpackers called Base...
Well this was interestingme, kate and steve were booked in here, in all different rooms. Katie in with a couple of girls and a group of 3 lads (who ill get on to) and steve in a room of 6 foreigners!! Then there was me... a room of 8 and god this room was vile, couldnt walk across the floor without treading on something wheter it be moldy food, a hairbrush or tooth paste!! People were ok though they were mainly workers who had been there for ages so didnt care!!
So had a quick shower and went to meet kate and steve, us 3 went to a place called the gaff!! was a good nite lots of games etc like being on a lads holiday, finally crashed out at bout 3/4ish! Next day Kate woke me up bout 11 and we went for breakfast with the 3 guys in her room called Lawrence (who knows someone i know back home) whos was out here on hols and hes 2 aussie mates Linden and Rowan. These werent travelling just on a short break from work! Ended up spending the last few days with these, real good lads and a right laugh, we spent one day at Manly beach which was well nice, then off to Bondi beach for a couple of days cause we wanted a beach and some sun!
Yep we both got burnt, surprise surprise!! Was nice few day in a boiling hot hostel though, went to a wickid bar with beds in it and just chilled out listen to a bloke on guitar and then quiz nite the next one! Met a couple more english lads (wheres the women!!! lol), gonna meet up when they come back to the city
The boys all went home, still in contact with them though, and wev come back into the city. Went for expensive dinner with one of kates mums friends which was real nice... eat lots of fish over the last few days!! Seen the opera house, harbour etc... and went to Darling Harbour which is wickid with lots of nice bars...!! Weather is much better now so were gonna be fdoing lots of things fot the next week like climbing the bridge etc..!
Could waffle for ages and talk bout lots more (such as the on going competetion between me and kate including bowling (she was gooood!) and pool etc, water taxi on the harbour and many other things)... trying hardest to keep it short really sorry, cause im useless!!
If you want it so you dont get the emails just let me know!!! Kates put fotos on facebook so add her... ill get my butt in gear soon and add some soon!
We're off to the Harbour now in the hot sun... message me if you like ill get back to you as soon as i can!!
