Where I stayed
This place is sooooo cool. It has everthing, bars, shops, clubs, views, weather, beaches...everything. Its easy to understand why so many brits come over and live here..(dont worry mum ill make sure i come back..lol) But all this comes at a cost...money. Its a real nice city and we're enjoyin it but its soooo expensive. So until we find jobs, i reckon we're gonna have to tone down the drinking.
...The first thing you notice about this place is the famour opera house and habour bridge! The habour bridge is impressive, although Andy reckons it just a bigger version of the tyne bridge! The opera house looks impressive too...from a distance. But as you get closer its not quite as 'grand' as ud expect it to be
..We'd booked into a hostel in kings cross, this is the place where all the backpacker hostel are. It was the first time any of us had been in a hostel and it wasnt much fun! We had this weirdo stayin in our room with usthat got up a stupid o'clock making loads noise. We spent days and days walking around the local estate agents tryin to find a place to rent, but had no joy. its almost as if every student/backpacker/international student has come to sydney and is trying to find a place to stay. After a few days we found a place to stay in Kirribilli (nr the bridge) for us to stay temp until we find somewhere better. (thats because the place at krribilli is a dump. The area and street is really nice but the house is a mess!) But after a week of trying we finally found a place in bondi, which we move in a couple of days! ;-)
...we've joined fitness first, so at least we shouldn't get fat..ish. We just now need to find a job! Easier said than done. I've updated my CV and i'm gonna go job hunting tomoz!
..Its spose to be for students, but we've managed to get in. Basically theres 4/5 apartments and you share em with other 'students.' And - all our meals are included too
..met up with debs and cat the other day and went for a drmink, was fun to swap stories about things we've been doing and to see a familiar face...
...Theres been some really hot days, other day it was 42 degrees, and we're told its only the start of summer. So we expect to get a really good tan!
...there'll be more photos as we get em..so keep checkin em out.
..have a good xmas, and ill update ya all soon!
