So since i last updated....
went to a gig. so good. really enjoyed it. just a few local bands. 4 bands for 5 dollars!!! thats 2 pounds 50!! beers were like 4 quid though. not so cool.
next day went to the beach. got quite burnt. good times! it has turned to tan now though but i burnt the underside of my nose. not fun. we then headed into town with out bags to our friends place who we met in bali. her place is right in the centre. southbank near the arts centre in the cbd. next to the tallest building in melbourne. awesome place. such a safe girl! she had to work so didnt see her much but goin gback on thursday to stay with her again!!. played monopoly. habvent played in years! pretty wierd with everyones different rules they play though!
that night madeline went to work so we chilled then went to an aussie rules game! pretty wierd how i used to play it at grittleton house school! out of all the sports they chose aussie rules... pretty random. but cool!
any way. it was st kilda, who we supported, against the western bulldogs. really good fun but st kilda lost!! not as brutal as a rugby game though but still a good game to watch!!
next we went to meet up with this girl called steph who we met in bali but she bailed so we ended up going to the casino. lost fifteen dollars. so annoying. didnt even win once at roullette!!! eurgh. charlie won then lost but at least he knew how it felt to win!!!
next day headed out. went to the i max but was fiull so we walked arpound the natural history museum. really cooll but the bit about the aboriginies was quite sad. we pretty much raped them and their country. hmmm. not cool. after we went and bought some nesquik. we miss it!! so good. then we headed home and walked down to the river side. nice piece of development. everything in melbourne is so new! so clean. watched some street performers which was a good laugh! very amusing. went back. ate dinner with madeline and played monopoly and cards etc. a good laugh. such a safe girl!!
next day woke up early to go on the great ocean road tour. whistle stop tour! bombing it down the road. saw bells beach. the main surf beach of australia. saw the great ocean road sign. saw koala bears in koala bear cove. nice fish and chips lunch. then walk in the rain forest. such diverse landscapes. the vegetation changes every so often. rain forest, pine woods, bush. very interesting. we then saw the twelve apostles. one of the seven wonders of the world! amazing views. some had collapsed to become stumps but the rest were stacks. then we went to a bay where there had been a ship wreck in the 1800's. cool bay. went into a cave and mucked about for a while! then we went for more view points. the ocean road has some of the most amazing views and cliffs ever! insane. the got some ofod. then a 2 hour drive where the kangaroos kept jumping in the road. very quaint hostel. few cool people in the group. headed to bed. was an incredible day!
next day we woke up early and ate some cereal for breakfast. nice having cereal again. rice krispies but called rice bubbles. tasty. then headed to some view points and some rock formations. amazing. first we headed to see a water fall which was pretty cool. it was early so pretty cold so was still wearing a hoodie but was such a nice waterfall and we got some good photos. we were in the grampians which is an area shaped by volcanic movements pushing up river sediment millions of years ago. so there are some amazing views and crazy rock formations such as the jaw of death which your not allowed to go on but we sneaked over the barrier and stood right on the edge. amazing photos. AMAZING VIEW!!! we also saw kangaroos. this place is needed to be seen to be believed. some of the best views i have ever witnessed. breath taking! we had some amazing photos! i dont know why but i'm loving aus. just loving it!!! the area where we travelled today was just beautiful and the towns were cool as well! proper out back. so dry but feels really authentic with cockatoos flying around cawing! next we headed to a vine yard for a free wine tasting session! had some really nice shiraz anmd some nice port that for some reason smelt and tasted like my parents strawberry jam... not a bad thing!!! in the toilets of the vine yard we saw a red back spider. really dangerous. very cool. there are lots of dangerous things in aus but if i get bitten i get bitten. nothing i can do! obviously check toilet seats and beds and shoes etc but no need to fret. then we headed back to melbourne. all in all a sweet ass trip. the photos will how amazing some of the views were. crazy.
i love australia!
