It is kind of weird having to look at organising accommodation in Australia now... I have since looked into the Base Hostel, St Kilda in Melbourne because everyone just raves about it. I have booked 5 nights in an 8 bed dorm and 2 nights in a private room (23rd and 24th December)... only because the dorm was booked out on Xmas eve. And I´ll be staying in an apartment with a local in Sydney´s Redfern. I´ve decided to splash out given that it is the end of my trip... I´ve also booked an apartment for the 25 nights I´ll be spending in Rio. I decided that I did not want to dorm it in, what is my final overseas destination for the year, apart from a transit stop of 2 nights in Santiago. My apartment is situated in Ipanema, which is claimed to be the best and safest beach area in Rio. I simply can´t wait for Rio now. For those of you who want to dorm it in Rio, The Mellow Yellow Hostel in Cocacabana is one of the best, and highly recommended by both locals and travellers I´ve met. I might visit here just to hang out with other travellers, in a different beach area.
I´m simply over travelling for now and looking forward to hitting my final city... I have 2 more overnight bus journeys to go before hitting Rio... I am done travelling and can´t wait to relax in the one city, Rio for just under a month.
Tomorrow we travel to the Iguassu Falls... one of the other main reasons for travelling through this region. Judging from the pictures and reviews from others, I´m in for a treat!
