Well i'm here!! Arrived in Sydney last night and made it to me hostel in one piece which is so central it's brilliant! I am about 20 minutes walk from the Opera House. It's glorious weather which apparently it hasn't been for the past few weeks so fingers crossed it'll hold out for me! Didn't waste any time and booked my trip to Melbourne for a few days.. leaving tomorrow.. although i'll be back in a few days to explore Sydney to it's fullest! I went for some dinner in China Town which was lovely and not too expensive. Up bright and breezy today.. about to head off and do some sight-seeing! (My hostel has a pool on the roof.. what!??!)

I have met a couple of really nice English girls, Karen and Mel, i'm sharing a room with Karen.  We went to an auction held by a chap named Safari Pete, he cornered me in the hostel lobby.. hilarious guy.. he had persuaded me to come along that evening whilst sticking his head through the lift doors.  Karen was wanting to bid on a trip which she got.. .. the free wine helped i'm sure.  We had an early night as we planned to go on a trip to Manly on the ferry the following day. 

.... Update.. just came back from the trip..  It was a gorgeous day.. perfect for the trip!    Got great views of the Opera House and the bridge.. and we went for a walk along the beach.  Off to Melbourne tomorrow!
