Now i have been trying to remember what has happened since my last blog!!!! Its all been a bit of a blur but a good one at that!
so after the grampians and the great ocean road. we stayed at the hostel for 2 more nights. one being st patricks day. had fun that evening but just walked around the city during the days! we also went to the natural history museum which was pretty fun! might have said that in the last blog? hmm. any way yer then we went and stayed with our friend in the centre of melbourne. that was good fun and just relaxed and enjoyed the city! that night i went and saw converge an american band. they were so good. so heavy and so brutal! saw some one stage dive and literally run on peoples heads for about 3 metres in to the crowd. was crazy. i personally think that british crowds are more crazy and more hectic but i twas a good experience and good fun!!!!
the next day we met 2 other travellers who were staying at madelines. they were from germany and proper good guys! had a good laugh with them. that night we celebtrated madelines birthday so she had a party in her apartment. good fun! they love the english accent haha
the next day was not so fun. had to get to the airport and catch our flight to sydney! everyone at the airport was so friendly. was a good flight! got to sydney at around 630 and got a taxi to our hostel. only about ten quid between us. our hostel is very chileld out. alot of good guys here and really vibey. its called chilli blue backpackers and i would recommend it to any one!!! the first thing we did the next day was go surfing at bondi beach! good fun but the water is ALOT chillier than bali. brrrrr. charlie has started wearing his wet suit!!! im not finding it that bad... haha i have also been eating ALOT of fish and chips. well im by the sea i jsut feel i have to!!!
we spent a couple of days at the beach and ended up meeting up with andreas who we chilled with in bali! so wierd seeing him again but good fun!! the next couple of days we spent mucking about in our hostel at night playing goon pong which is like beer pong but with goon. (goon for those who dont know is boxed wine which cant actually be called wine and is the drink of the poor. its made by filtering it throiugh egg fish and nuts and milk or something but its 4 litres for 10 dolls (5 pounds) which is just to good to turn down!!!) any way yer so just been enjoying the nights.
yesterday was charlies birthday so we celebrated it by going to see avatar in 3d at the worlds biggest i max movie screen. one word... AMAZING. AMAZING!!! it was so much better the second time! after that we headed to the botanic gardens and looked out over the harbour at the sydney opera house and the harbour bridge. a very nice view but was a bit cloudy at that point! we then mucked around with soem cockatoos in the park. so funny they come up to you and nibble your leg and you can get them to just perch on you. one bit my finger and it actually hurt! its tongue was wiiiieeeeeerd as well! funny times. we waited till night fall and then looked out at the view at night. i had heard from people that the opera house and the bridge were disappointing but i really enjoyed it! oh well! quite a few amusing photos from today! that night we just chilled and watched a movie. we also met up with kez from england and her friends which was cool to see her! wierd being in another country this far away and seeing friends from england!
today we have just relaxed and tomorrow we have booked a tour to the blue mountains so expect another blog entry soon!
