Melbourne! YHA

Few Days

We have been having quite abit of free time which is nice.. and trying to negotiate the large city of melbourne by tram... which has proved very difficult! =] but we managed. eveyones walking around with big maps which scream "Tourists" coupled with our awfull attempts at crossing there complicated road netowrk system which you need a degree for is probably why all the australian people call us pommes. and not in a good way either!!!

Jess Fans birthday! Was good! We went up the Rialto tower observation deck which was gorgeous! I saw the back straight from the f1 and had lots of fun! the view is incredible. melbourne is a very pretty city... it doesnt look typically australian but it is lovely!!! I brought a new camera just before hand so i was able to take photos up there!!!, After the tower and its amasing view and 55 story elevator we went on an alcohol search... it was such a hassel! No where in the town center sells it... eventually we found a small place, they asked for all our ids... had to unlcok it to get it out of a cabnet and wrapped it up in a brown paper bag, which i then put in my backpack... so should anyone have looked into my bag a small sized personal bottle of vodka wrapped up in a brown bag would have made me look like an alcoholic!!!!!

The night of Jesis birthday we went out!!! Explored the streets of Melbourne and I stroked a possum! It was just like a cat... but it climbed trees! It was really friendly and came over to say hi!! The night was okay although we didnt drink much, aussie drinks are so expensive and the men are so creepy!!!! So it would have been stupid to have wasted all our money drinking and not be in control, I had 2 maybe 3 drinks.. as well as abit of vodka much earlier to celebrate..! So we were all sober.. yet hungry enough by the end of it to find our way into a kebab shop and into a taxi. WHich btw was a very cheep taxi

The day after we went on the neightbours tour... i didnt really watch it so i didnt notcie anything! I had a photo taken by harolds shop... for obvious reasons! lol... and we explored the set.. some girls in our group are major fans, there lovely but were creeping through peoples gardens like stalkers it was hilarouis! Im glad they enjhoyed it though. Evn i did! I loved seing the set, and this really old ancient theatre which was beautifull wehre a celebrity met us after. but i cant remebr her name. but she was old yet thin!

That night i met up with sam and chris and sams partner gino? lol! Had an awsomeee time! They took me to a gorogeous all you can eat reasturant and it was rgeat to see them! The resturant was in the crown casino adn everything was stunning. there just as i remember them apart from chris who assures me hes not into actionman anymore :P but they were sooo lovely and meeting then was deffo the highlight of my trip so far!

i also got to speak to mum and max on webcam which was lovelyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!! and great to see them!!!!!
