Thought we would drop you a quick message to let you all know that we have arrived safely! The 24 hours of travelling was as unbearable as you can expect,..although we got plenty of inflight meals and free booze which helped!
As you can imagine we have slept like 'john and yoko' since we got here! But have still managed to force ourselves up and out to see the sights! The town we are staying is called Stanmore but we are also adjoining Newtown, which is a great location. Newtown has a 2 mile stretch of pubs, bars, live music venues and restaurants. More restaurants than you can imagine,.thai, chinese,greek, vietnamese, portugese, lebonese,turkish,african, indian,nordic and DOMINOS! (Not one chippy insight! haha!) You can expect us to return in a years time like the size of a house end! We are already saving for extra seats home to accomodate the growth!
We are 1 train stop from Sydney city centre.
Our first trip out was to see Sydney central, we saw the harbour,the opera house and the amp tower to name but a few! It was fantastic but hard to take it all in that we are really here at all!
The second trip we took was to Bondi Beach, the weather that day reached inxs of 30 degrees!
Scorchio! So we took advantage of the weather (and got burnt to a crisp!). The view over Bondi Beach was awesome and really was like a postcard scene!
But now we have to face a few facts and start looking for work, although how you can do a serious days work over here is a mystery, surely it will be friday feeling everyday!
Anyway, we will keep you updated on our adventures, we need to go now, it is soooooo hot in here!!!! haha!
