On the home front we also saw a luxurious place in Sydney CBD (central business district) which had a pool, sauna, and gym that could be used
Meanwhile at the hostel.....we had a few guests join us on our travels. It seems that the room we changed to in the hostel already had guests staying in it. These guests were bed bugs. Sarah got off scott free where as I got bitten all down the left side of my body. Little red spots from the top of my head, all the way down to my feet. When we moved into the house today, the 29th, the landlady saw the bites and we had to put all our possession into black plastic bags and leave them in the sun all day. I ended up sitting outside the new house, for 7 hours, whilst our goods cooked in order to kill any bugs that had joined us. In the mean time Sarah was at the launderette, washing all clothes on a boil wash as to kill any bugs that had got into them. She had to go to K-mart and buy some clothes that we could temporarily wear until everything was washed and dried. Nightmare. What was worse, our first words to our housemates, Marie and Richie and Gillian and Aiden were:-
"Hi there, we are Tony and Sarah, pleased to meet you. By the way, if you start scratching or itching in the next few days its because we have brought bed bugs as a moving in gift."
Fortunately we got rid of them all.
