      Very nice hostel. All the people are very friendly. We are in a room at the very top of the house which has made it even more hot than it already is. I am sat by the fan whenever we are in there! But it is a very nice place and only a 20 minute walk into the city and to Sydney opera house and the harbour bridge.

Second flight from Dubai to Sydney took a very long time. When we arrived we went straight to the hostel, and checked in. Then went out to Watsons bay, had a great walk …

      SO after a horrendous journey to Oz involving flight delays, burping/******* Indians, sleep deprivation and unusual in-flight food we have made it to the other side of the World! We are beginning to adapt to the backpackers lifestyle, washing pants and knickers in the sink and decorating the room with them, drinking 'goon' (cheap …

      Heute stand noch eine Hafenrundfahrt auf dem Programm. Sehr schöner Blick auf Sydney und auch raus auf den Pazifik! Ich habe jetzt einige Leute gefunden, mit denen ich nach Norden fahren werde und wir werden dann am Mittwoch Morgen starten. Endlich raus aus der "Kälte"!

      Gestern Abend war es dann doch endlich soweit und ich hab zum ersten Mal die Harbour Bridge und die Oper von Sydney gesehen. Sehr beeindruckend :) Heute wurde das Wetter dann wieder besser und wir haben uns die beiden Sehenswürdigkeiten bei Tag angesehen. Bei einer Wanderung über die Brücke sind wir dann noch zum Freizeitpark "Luna Park" gelaufen und zurück, um Sonnenuntergangsbilder zu machen.
