Its been a while but we are back on the road after slogging our guts off for 2.5 months and it feels great!!!
We left Sydneyshire on Friday evening after picking up our little car and headed off into the great unknown (not before ali had stalled 12 times whilst reverse parking)
First stop was the blue mountains. We stayed in a place called Katoomba which was absolutely jam packed with crustaceans (our new word for crusties!)
Hostel was a shock to say the least. Walking in, we spied a chandelier in reception and thought we had hit the big time (we ended up staying in a scout hut!) Saying that, we had an eight bed dorm to ourselves which was sweet, but we returned on the second night to find the door open and a drunk local passed out in another bed! The snoring was so loud that neither pol or i could bear it!
As for the blue mountains themselves, wonderful! we went to a place called scenic world (how corny!) which consisted of three scenic transport rides and a hell of a lot of Japs! Got some top pics and we nearly got snapped ourselves as we changed into shorts half way round thinking no-one was watching!
Departing Krustyville, we headed off past the hunter valley where we scored some great wine and some chocolate port! (how rock and roll are we!?) Headed to an old industrial town called newcastle which bore an uncanny resemblance to Grimsby and Hull, needless to say, we went to bed early and left around 8am!
On the way up to Byron Shire, there was not much to see. We did bump into a Koala Hospital and took some great pics of half stoned Koala's sleeping!
Byron Bay. What can we say about it... well, if will is reading, we can kinda understand why you got lost there... it's a hippy heaven, full of weed smoking surfers who just chill on the beach all day and party at night! We met our pal, katie there (she was working in a hippy commune called the arts factory - recommended!) and chilled on the beach as the sun went down and the locals played didgeridoos and bongo's! what bliss!
We are now in Surfers paradise (paradise being somewhat of a lie!) but we intend on aving a beer or two and a larf whilst at it!
We shall update on tonights antics asap!
Peace love and a big phat kiss
Polly and ali
