Jen and Mads - Southeast Asia 2008 travel blog


Just arrived at the hostel in Brisbane... so thought i should let you all know what Ive been upto!

Melbourne was good, ut the weather was pretty rubbish and theres not a massive amount to do that doesnt cost loads! But we did a 2 day tour of the great ocean road which was pretty good, and went to the melbourne museum and st kilda beach etc which was good.

Then we went to Sydney for a week and I loved it! The hostel was great- the room was clean and big and had ensuite and the people were all really friendly- evening activities arranged every night (we won a prize in the quiz woooo!) and did a bar crawl last night which was pretty fun. Did a day of surf lessons which was SO much fun but i was incredibly bad (i stood up on my board about 6 times the whole day!) and so consequently have bruises on my elbows and knees and my muscles are stiff and achy so today i feel like i cant move at all!

Went for a walk round the Botanical gardens and went and saw the opera house and the harbour bridge- the harbour bridge climb was $180 which is well over my budget so i decided to give it a miss! Spent a day on Bondi beach also- but was sooo crowded. Then did a really nice coastal cliff walk over to coogee beach and got the bus home.

Missing home lots but having heaps of fun- only in brisbane for 2 nights and theres a few things we want to do and see- but theres a rooftop swimming pool here which is REALLY appealling!

Hope youre all ok and everything at home is all good.

Love you all lots
