Travel Blogs from Darwin
Flying into Darwin there's a load of turbulence and looking out the window we can see the sky being lit up with lightening which looks really cool being above the clouds. Once we've made it through immigration, which involved turning out our bags to declare 8 teabags, a bar of chocolate and a cereal bar, we collapse in chairs and prepare to wait …
Hello - Sarah here!
It has been a very long time since we updated this blog. Partly because our Telstra Internet credit keeps running out and partly because we have been busy settling back into the Darwin lifestyle (aka drinking a bit too much beer).

Apart from one minor incident where I woke up in the back because she'd put my car in a ditch ( …
You know you've been involuntarily unemployed for too long when you find yourself slumped on a couch idly flicking through the jobs paper, poring over jobs which require skills that exceed your qualifications as a Good For Nothing Lay About Backpacker whilst criticising the inadequacies of childrens' television.

TravelPod Member ReviewsGecko Lodge Darwin
The hostel is quiet, has a friendly feel and in a good location - just a short walk to Mitchell Street. However, there were few actual Backpackers staying and lots of older Australian working men.
The facilities were also poor, only one toilet and shower were in use for the entire hostel by the time we checked out. The kitchen is very small and the cooktops do not work properly, it takes almost 40 minutes to cook pasta. The airconditioning is only turned on after 7 or 8pm and turned off again in the morning which means the rooms are very very warm in the day.
