Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun?! Can’t believe that we left home a week ago tomorrow…
The hostel at The Rocks was excellent! It is only 6 months old and we would highly recommend it, although it was too expensive to stay here for long.
We are now staying at O’Malleys in Kings Cross, Sydney. The area is interesting – we saw a “lady” being picked up at 7am this morning, and there are cockatoos outside that tap on the window opposite until they get fed their breakfast. Drinks at O’Malley’s are much more affordable – a pitcher of beer costing $8!
We have done a FREE walking tour around Sydney, which was excellent, and we had a good wander around the night market in The Rocks on Friday night.
We leave O’Malleys on Tuesday and are moving to the YHA hostel in Glebe for three nights, which is in the leftfield, bohemian part of town. We have then booked to stay at a YHA in Port Stephens, for five nights, which is up the coast and set in rainforest gardens.
Yesterday we think we found the campervan that we will buy. Even though we haven’t seen it yet! We’ll keep you posted, but we hope to be van owners within a couple of weeks.
Thanks again for all your comments and messages on the blog – please keep them coming, we love them! Also, please keep an eye out for new releases from Pickle Productions and, again, keep the feedback coming. We’ve also had a number of Skype conversations with family and friends now, which we have thoroughly enjoyed (even when they’ve been sat infront of the webcam wearing your PJs!!) – we’re talking to you more now than we ever used to back in the UK!!
We will try and update you again soon. We’re off out for dinner now with Simon’s distant cousin, Liz Illingworth, who lives in Syndey with her boyfriend. Gotta dash, we have a harbour ferry to catch!
Lots of love to you all, S & S xx
