Nov 4, 2007 - Wer'e Here!!!!

Hello, we are now in OZ!! We got here safely and even though we thought we were going to land an hour later than scheduled we amazingly landed on time. (Personally I think it was because we had a lady pilot! chloe) Unfortunately it was raining when we landed but it was warm rain and after about 1/2 an hour you wouldn't of known its been raining. We didn't get up too much yesterday, too tired. I did end up falling asleep more than once during the day but it wasn't for long. (chloe) Not much else to say at the mo but I do know we are going to...

Nov 4, 2007 - Surfing!

Well, this will more than likely be my last entry. I can't believe how fast the last 2 months have gone by!!! Tonight I am taking the night bus from Byron Bay to Sydney which will be my last stop before flying home on Thursday. I wish I could spend more time in Byron Bay but I guess I have to get back to reality at some point. I have spent the last two days in Byron surfing out at a place called Flat Rock. It has been SUPER windy so the waves have been great but it has been exhausting work to try to get out to the surf. Yesterday the...

Oct 28, 2007 - Sydney Our Last Stop in Australia

Day 22 We're on our way to Sydney. For our trip to the airport we had the same limo driver that brought us to the Lakes four days ago. What a pleasant guy (he reminded us of Michael Palin from Monty Python.) After he finished dropping us off at the Cairns airport, his next fare was three Japanese models and photographer headed to one of the Cairns beaches for a photo shoot. Poor guy! The flight to Sydney must have been the family flight special by Jet Air. There were more screaming kids on this flight than we've ever experienced. It was a...

Oct 27, 2007 - Further adventures in Sydney!

27th Well after our first few days in Sydney centre we were going outside and into the suburbs with Hannah's friend Hailey from camp. We went to Seven hills and met her and she took us shopping, to outlets so it wasn't stupidly expensive. It was a better day than it had been so we went of to the beach to Manly Beach and had fish and chips while sat on the beach. Manly was full of surfers, looks really cool can't wait to give it a try! In the evening it was Hailey's birthday and she had invited us out, so we went back to the hostel to get...

Oct 26, 2007 - Sydney - Day 1

We arrived in Sydney after an overnight flight from Seroul. We took a walk through the Botanical Gardens where we saw some beautiful roses, canna lilies (they are treated as annuals here) and the noise, famouse fruit bats hanging in the trees. We walked to the point at Mrs. Macquire's chair which is a seat carved in rock around 1812. This chair was carved by workmen at the direction of Governor Macquire for her as she loved to sit here and watch the harbour. It really is a great view! We also saw the Opera House and the bridge and we are...

Oct 24, 2007 - Have I been here before??

Well, my sister finally made it. However, she only has time to see and stay in Sydney. So, I am back in my favorite city. I am super excited to see my sister, and show her one of my favorite cities. We are also back staying in the infamous "Pink House", so she is getting to meet all my friends and see where I lived for a while. I am having to miss some of the east coast b/c of timing, but it is worth it to hang with the sis. I will still get to see a fair bit, so I will get the beast of both worlds! I probably wont have much to report while...

Oct 23, 2007 - Sydney

23rd Oct Everything that pretty much could go wrong on our first day in Sydney, pretty much did. :( arrived at 5am from a flight neither of us slept on (ok to be honest our fault to absorbed in the films) Firstly my bank card decided not to work, checked my email and my mums had a phone call from the fraud HSBC department which had decided to block it, although using another cash machine managed to get a bit of cash out. Kaz still hasn't got her bank cards so without mine... were screwed. We couldn't check into our room till 10.30am, so...

Oct 23, 2007 - Sydney

23rd We arrived in Sydney at 6am and caught the train to central station which was were the 'Wake up Hostel' is, unfortunately they said we wouldn't be able to check in until 11am so we had 4hours or so to kill. In that time though I felt really sick and ended up being ill the rest of the day which wasn't fun. We eventually checked in at 11am and went upstairs as we needed to get to sleep, but when we got to our rooms they weren't made up so had to wait for housekeeping to change the sheets before getting to sleep. I didn't really sleep as...

Oct 17, 2007 - SkyDive Sydney

If you’re off travelling this was a must! We got picked up in Sydney in the morning and had trip down the coast Wollongong about an hour south of Sydney. Suited up and ready to. The skydive was from 14,000 feet which offered about a 30 second free fall. Well all I can say is you have to be insane to jump out of a perfectly good airplane!

John's Trip to Oz

Oct 12, 2007 - Sydney, Australia

Drive to Sydney. We had a fast drive on mostly freeway type road at 110 km per hour (about 68 mph). We are paying the equivalent of $4.35 per gallon for fuel, but I am getting about 16 mpg, so my cost per mile is about the same as pulling my fifth wheel in the states. We got to the place to turn in the motorhome by 10 AM but it took about 2 hours to get it cleared. Everything was fine and I did not occur any charges. We then waited for the bus to take us to the hotel. Then at the hotel we were told the rooms wouldn't be ready until 3 PM....

Oct 10, 2007 - Hi From Oz

Hi to everyone back home in Blighty, I thought I'd let you all know I'm alive and well and loving Australia.The flight over was a bit hardcore, it was a 9 hour flight to our first stop in Bankok and then a 2 and a half hour wait until we got back on the plane and a further 9 hours to Oz. While we were waiting on the plane in London i moved seats with a lass who was getting herself in a right state cus she was on the other side of the plane to her boyfriend. Good old me gave up my seat for her and got jammed between and old belgian guy and a...
