So we are in Melbourne!!!
Been here 2 days and we love it! when we arrived the weather was pretty bad. so cold compared to bali. we were wearing hoodies and stuff! not cool. we found our hostel which is pretty cool but some of the people arent as friendly as they are in other places. mainly the british people... hmmm but no its all fun! ended up just watching movies the first night catching up on some sleep! but we did go for a walk along the beach which was pretty nice! walked out onto the pier and had a coffee. very nice.
next day we had no idea what to do so we headed into the cbd (central buisness district) and decided to have a walk around! very cool. very modern buildings and an old cathdral in the middle. its all so clean! there are a few sky scrapers and the streets are really wide! there are also trams which are SO COOL. its the main way to get around and the main thing to watch out for when crossing the street! we then found the aquarium and so headed in there seeing some penguins, sharks, jelly fish. loooads of fish. good fun! haha its just like being a little kid! im 19 im still a teenager im allowed! after this we walked around some more taking in the sites, walked down the river promenade looking at all the restaurants. very nice. melbourne is just really clean and cool. dunno crazy!
that night just watched movies and made some pasta. cheap food and tasty!
today the weather was much better so we headed to the beach! lay there for a bit. the beach is pretty small but its a nice newly developed sea front with little shops and a nice walk. and all very clean!! everywhere is so clean! after this we decided to head to the city again. so we got the tram and headed for the sky view. its a skycraper where you can go to the top and have a 360 view of the city! very cool. i think the tower we went up in tokyo was taller though!! such a nice day. blue skies! we looked around then headed for the melbourne museum and the i max. its the 3rd biggest in the world. think we are gonna go see avatar or alice in wonderland there sometime! the museum was closed but we might go another day! we also checked out this media art thing. really strange full of wierd videos and photo's such as this one which takes your picture and shows you aging and another one where it hsows your shadow and you move around and all these things stick to your shadow. very odd!
tonight going to head to a gig around 9. i asked this random guy on a tram if he knew any good bands and he told me about this one tonight. should be about $10 and i think about 4 bands are playing! we will see what they are like. (heavy i hope!)
so till tommorrow!
