KEVINB’s Travel Diary

Location: Sydney/Bondi Beach, Australia

MapWell it’s my first day in Australia. After about a 30 hr trip to get over here and amazingly after 4 stops my luggage was right there, the first day made it worthwhile. I arrived in Sydney at about 7:00 AM and by the time I got through customs, picked up a phone to use over here, and took a taxi to Bondi it was around 10:30. I checked into the bed and breakfast (which is really nice…run by a very friendly couple) and hit the beach at 11:30. The B & B is only a block from the beach. After the long trip it felt really good to just put my beach chair (which they gave me) in the sand. Bondi beach is something else. Contrary to what Perry told me at work…topless does NOT mean you don’t need a hat. The weather was beautiful…about 80 with a slight breeze. The water is beautiful. I stayed at the beach until about 2:30 then went and got my camera and went for a walk for about an hour just to get acclimated. I then went back to my room…changed and went for a run

I talked to Carley today and I’m really looking forward to seeing her on Tuesday.

It’s probably because of the language but I was sitting at dinner tonight (outside of course) looking out over the beach, having what might be the best burger I’ve ever had and it just didn’t seem like I was on the other side of the world.

That’s it for now…I have a big day planned of doing not a whole lot tomorrow.
