Monday, 20 April 2009

Location: Sydney, Australia

So the last time I wrote was Wed I think. Went To Bondi Beach on thursday and yes its exactly what you would expect loads of tanned beauty's unfortunatley boys and girls, but hey was fab, the surf looked awesome, but there is absolutely no way I could get out on it, just too damn strong the currents are insane! Good to watch though it puts you in the same mind set. Friday I spent the day with the Norwegain girls and we went to Hyde Park and laid in the sunshine and then went to the Aquariam, it is amazing stuff. Went out friday night with some mad Argentinian guys, Very entertaining! Sat we went to the Surrey Hills festival, which was really good, we went out again sat night and got a little tiddly!!!! We had free dinner though, you bought a drink and got a free dinner, it was pretty aweful, but hey it was free!!!!! Was fairly rough all day yeterday, so we didn't do much, went out for breke, then sat in the room for a while and then went out for coffee and sat a played cards for like 4 hours. Cooked pancakes for dinner with Tonje and 2 Dutch guys, and Ben joined us, then a few more hours of cards, good stuff. Slept like a baby last night, and no real plans today just gonna make plans for the rest of the week, so I get to make the best with the time I have left. Karty is coming on Friday though and we are gonna do the bridge climb on my birthday, how cool............ H x

Location: Sydney, Australia

Not sure where I got to last time, so I'll just start from Friday, Karty was off work and we went out to the hills to the Maclaren Vale, vineyards, bloody lovely, we then went to the restaurant called Russels place and it is stone baked pizza around open fires in a yard, superb. I sat there with a glass of delicious red wine and thought I don't think you can beat this!!! I'll try though..... Sat we went out to really swish restaurant, the other extreme of last night. Lovely food on Mr West. Mon we drove to Robe, it looks like its 5 mins on the map and it took us 4 hours, the beauty of Oz. Stayed there over night in a hostel, Karty's first time in a hostel, it was really nice though so no probs there then, we went out and got smashed. Mon we drove home, played cards, enough to keep Karty going, he got smashed again! Tues I flew to Sydney, woweeeeeeeeeee. Went out with 2 Norwegian girls last night and had a nice meal and then went for beers, oh happy days, was a really late night. Today I have walked around the city, what a fab place. I'm pleased I have 2 weeks here, there is alot to do! H x

Location: Adelaide, Australia

Hello there dudes and dudetts, all is well here, the weather is the only thing letting the side down! Flights over were ok, long but ok, arrived early Friday morning and got to Karty's around lunch time, I took a shower and then he arrived home from work, we sat with a beer and caught up. Probably not the best idea, beer with the length of time I had been flying, oh well! Just the start of whats to follow.... We went out for a little while, but I was tired so went home for an early night. Saturday we went to Victor Harbour, a lovely little place about an hours drive away, had some fresh fish just off the beach, can you imagine! And then went to place called Goolwa and fell asleep on the beach, this beach was like nothing I have ever seen, I went on and on and on. However we still managed to fall asleep. Beautiful. We went out with some of Karty's work mates tonight and drank way too much, oh happy days! Sunday we had a BBQ at next doors, it was fab, they are great people, very entertaining. Evan the guy wanted to take us and show us some places, it ended up being an attempt at a pub crawl, however his wife Sandra had had enough and wanted to go home so we just did trips round the car parks! Karty and I were trying our hardest not to laugh but you know how it is when you try hard. We went to see Notoriuos at the cinema tonight and now all Karty sings is Notorious.... Help me please! Monday, Karty dropped me in town as he had to work and I wandered around, once again discovering just how big this place really is. He came to get me after he had finished and we went to a German village called Hahndorf. Ate way too much and went home for me to teach him how to play shit head. He loves it as everyone does, I let him win a couple of times!!!!! Tuesday, today, Karty had to work early so he left me sleeping and when I woke it was 12.00 midday, all I appear to be doing is sleeping, oh well I guess I must need it. The sun is finally shining so I sat out on the lawn for a while, he came home and took me to Glenelg. It is lovely, walked for a couple of hours along the coast and got nowhere, perfect, sat and had a beer, home and then Karty came home, we have just had a yum yum chinese meal and I think we are heading home for some more shit head, bloody marvellous, keep well H x
