Australia so Far
Melbourne is awesome and I'm so pleased we've finally made it here. Our flights were a bit ropey as the new flight we got put on was to Sydney and then a domestic to Melbourne. We were on the same flight as Marty and Chris but when we got to the gate, the guy wasn't going to let us on because we didn't have a flight interruption mandate. We got sorted though and we got here in one piece. Mary is a diamond and we had a ton of fun trying to find her car in the car park (Mary, can I have your autograph now please because you're famous haha). Mary and Helen took us for dinner in the casino and then we did a spot of night time touring of the city. We have driven along the grand prix track which is going to be used in a couple of weeks time (Madelaine are ya jealous haha) and have seen the tallest building in the Southern Hemisphere.
Today we have done a bit of sightseeing and tomorrow we're going to the immigration museum, the zoo and we're going to go up the Eureka Building. We're planning on heading to Sydney for St Patricks Day and H is looking at flights as I type (I get all the good jobs eh haha).
I hope all of you have been getting your postcards ok? Have probs spent more $ on them than anything else but dont think they're all getting there. So apologies in case they haven't.
So thats the update on Melbourne so far- the weather is nice and the food is great. We're no longer on Fiji time which means a tearful goodbye to the drums but we are back to reality again and the first day in another city has been weird haha.
My camera is nearly full and I am going to be writing a strongly worded letter when I get back because I've been told memory cards don't support filming only still images. I'm having to buy an external harddrive to store all of my filming. Ah well there's nothing I can do I suppose. Heather is having as much luck as me and has had to buy a new memory card for hers. It's all character building and adds to the fun I guess.
Will be watching the Liverpool match on Sunday and we're going to see a local Sunday league game too.
Will be speaking to you all soon
lots of love
