Back to Sydney

After a brilliant time in Melbourne.. I headed back with a slightly fuzzy head to Sydney. I arrived at 8pm last night and slept extremely well I can tell you. It's a beautiful day today so looking forward to getting out there.. possibly heading to Bondi Beach!


I have spent the past few days tying loose ends up.. organising my trip up the East Coast, sending packages back home and site-seeing with the Mel and Karen. It's been great to see them again.. I will definitely be sad to leave on Monday. BUT I am going up the coast for sunshine, snorkeling and lots of other lovely things so I can't be too sad! The pennies are slipping through my fingers all too fast for my liking.. it's so expensive here. I am already looking forward to Asia where I know my money will go a lot further!

Today the girls and I went to Bondi Beach.. well we went to Coogee and walked along to Bondi.. took us about 2 hours.. it was lovely to get the fresh air.. even if my hair did end up looking like a brillo pad (just a tad windy!) We stopped for some fuel before heading back around 6. The beaches here are amazing.. gorgoues deep blue water with bright white sands.. I would have braved it and jumped in if it hadn't been cold enough to freeze me solid mid-run. Yes.. definitely looking forward to warmer climates up the coast.

I managed to complete the Sydney Bridge Run this morning. I had my doubt what with my dodgy ankle and my severe lack of training for it.. due to .. the dodgy ankle. I don't know my time justyet.. but I know it's nothing spectacular.. but hey.. i'm glad I did it! It was a beautiful day.. early enough for there to be a cool breeze but there wasn't a cloud in the sky! 

Going to Govinda's with Karen and Mel tonight.. an, apparently, famous cinema that serve an all you can eat Indian Buffet then let you lounge on couches after you meal watching a film.. sounds good to me!

Update.. Went to Govinda's last night.  It was amazing.. delicious food and then lovely soft sofas for us to lye on covered in cushions while we watech 'Evening'.. lovely last night in Sydney!
