Well, back to the internet at least. Sorry I didn’t have one last blog before I left like I planned to, but wouldn’t you know it, the internet in the hostel was out for like 18 hours and then I had to go to surf camp, where there was no internet.
What could it be, you wonder? A snake? A shark? A croc? No, it was…
Well, it’s raining here, so there isn’t much really to do. I walked down to the work and travel office (I definitely think it was a great idea for me to do this program through them as opposed to by myself. I have a lot of advantages like free internet, and all kinds of great discounts.
Today I went to the Australian Wildlife zoo. My feet are STILL killing me, so I couldn’t do much but limp my way there. AND (forgive me, I still want to complain a bit) my calf muscles are bringing me so much pain. I guess I did way too much walking yesterday. On the plus side, I’ll come back to the US with KILLER legs!
Today, I did most of the tourist-type things that I wanted to do in Sydney. First I went to the Sydney Opera house and did a tour. It was built so that it resembled a ship. It’s right on the edge of the water so the master architect thought it would be cute to have it look like sails from afar.
I have only been in Sydney for one day, but I’ve already learned some very interesting tidbits of knowledge. And because you are my captive audience, I will share them with you.
The plane ride was uneventful. It was REALLY LONG though. I don’t think I could have handled much more – but at least I didn’t sit next to the stereotypical smelly guy or crying kids! On the trip from London to Singapore (I apparently had a layover in Singapore that no one told me about. It didn’t mention it on my ticket)
