This is probably going to be my last update while in Aus as on Sunday we head back to Thailand so I've got lots to update you on!
After picking up Katie in Adelaide we headed for 'the great ocean road' our first night was spent on a campite in the middle of nowhere but very nice and the camper was actually very comfy once we got the beds made! The views while we were driving were beautiful even thought for most of the journey it rained, everywhere we go it ends up raining! The second campsite we found had an amazing kitchen that had no windows, a fire as a cooker and a dodgy looking microwave somehow plugged into the wall, to say the least we used our gas cooker that night even though the wind kept putting the flame out! after three days on the road we ended up in Melbourne and back in hostels!
Finally the day we had been waiting for for days had arrived, the Melbourne Cup!! We all got up early, got ready and ordered a cab, then most of the day can just about be remembered as we got on the sparkling wine! The next day headaches and sunburn were the only evidence of the day before as none of us made any winnings or found a rich husband! The rest of the week we spent in Melbourne was spent chilling out with me going for my usual explorations round the city finding the markets, the observation tower and the park by the riverside. We also went to the Australia V England rugby leage game where we got trashed!
From Melbourne we decided that we didn't want to go back to Sydney for almost 2 weeks so booked flights back to Brisbane as we really liked it there, ended up staying for a week with some friends of ours in a place called The Gap. Beautiful area untill 2 days ago when a huge storm came through and caused alsorts of damage including knocking out all power for the last 2 days and numerous houses loosing their roofs! Luckly our house was fine and the army have been around clearing up, nice!
Now we have flown to Sydney ready to leave Aus on Sunday, can't believe that the whole trip is almost over as it fells like we'll be leaving Thailand soon as well. Its been great over here and have loved the whole experience, don't want to leave! Oh well have to come home sometime, so I'll be seeing you all soon! Love Zu
