We headed off to Northbridge and straight to a bar called the brass monkey. quite a sophisticated bar, nice but not where we'd of spent all night. Dean spent the first 30minutes trying to learn the rules of aussie rules footie, without much luck! after a few drinks and chatting to a few english and welsh blokes we headed off to an english bar called the elephant and wheelbarrow.
we soon got speaking to a big group of scottish blokes with dean offending them straight away by doing the protestant flute action (think paul gasgoine for rangers!) although they were quite laid back and took it as a joke.
a live band came on stage later in the evening playing songs from the 80's mainly, but we had a good laugh and a dance - even though dean was in a bit of a state at this time
at 2.00pm we headed off to the 24hour McDonalds and had what can only be described as a feast (well dean did anyway), one extra large value meal, 9 chicken nuggets and an extra large fries later-dean complained he was stuffed!!!
we eventually managed to find a taxi and went home. on the sunday we just had a nice relaxing day on the beach followed by a curry on the night. the curry was nice, but nothing compared to england! with kellys tasting more like a madrass than a mossala!
on the wedenesday after a hard few days at work we went to the local backpackers bar-the OBH and entered the pool comp. success was found with kelly chuffed to have got through to the 2nd round, beating a lad that was actually quite good. dean got through to the semi only to be beaten by the same lady as the previous week.
we got talking to a couple, a lad from oxford and his gf that lives in aus, we all got on really well and agreed to meet up on friday and head into scarborough with a group of their mates.
on the friday dean had a free bbq and beer after work, so of course he was drunk before we even met up for the night out! which kelly wasnt best pleased about!
on saturday we got up and went to the beachside cafe and had an all u could eat english breakfast for $20 each. so dean being the beast he is took full advantage of the offer having 5sausages, 3bacon, 4hash browns, 2 eggs and lashings of beans. once again he moaned he was full.
we then took a busand train into a place called sorrento, here there was a large aquarium with a fantastic tunnel that u walk through and sharks, fishes and all other sea creatures swimming all around of you. unfortunately we missed the dolphin feed.
there was also loads of restaurants, bars, shops, funfair, aqua park etc. we had a caricature of us drew, which was qite amusing, even though i did look the spitting image of Paula! we then had a game of crazy golf, dean won of course!!
all in all though a really enjoyable day and somewhere we will probably go to again for lunch and to spend a bit more time there.
