Where I stayed
Yes, i can honestly say I was completely unprepared for the trip.... although i knew it was winter here, somehow i still thought it was going to be warm. On Sunday I saw the Sydney Opera House. I wandered about the quay side watching an 'aborigine' (inverted comma's because under all the paint he may have been south american/black/asian.... it was hard to tell.) play the didgeridoo. Think that may have been the moment when i really felt i was in oz
Yesterday I just chilled out around Bondi and took in the scenery mainly. I realised that I don't have to dash about doing everything - I am in fact allowed to do nothing, should i so wish .... it is my holiday after all!!! and its also cheaper.... I went to visit a friend of a friend up in Penrith Called Jennie, and her family. It was awesome, coz they fed me homecooked food, gave me a really hot bath with candles and music (!!!) and a warm bed.... even though i'd paid for the hostel there was no way i was returning to that place when a warm bed was on offer
Today I headed into the Blue Mountains for a few hours. They're called blue coz of the Eyucalyptus Oil that evaporates from the tress creates a blue haze over the vegetation. Amazing wat things you learn on ya travels, eh!? Did a bit of a walk and saw the three sisters - three massive rocks that sit off the cliff side. I believe the story goes that three sisters tricked their father or something, so he turned them into rocks til they could behave themselves better.... i wasn't paying that much attention at that point. The view was too good!!!!
Anyway, think thats all from me. I have tried to give you the highlights so far, hope thats ok???? It'd be really great to hear from you lot out there.... so please write a comment back on the blog!!!!!!!
