G'Day from Sydney!

Howdy Folks ....
So here we are ... in the final days of what has been, without any shadow of a doubt the best holiday i have every had. Rach is leaving tomorrow (saturday) and I'll be following on Sunday.
We got into Sydney on Monday morning and within a few hours we'd met up with Alex and Roise (Rachaels 2 travelling buddies). We'd checked into a bit of a naff hostel in the city centre ... so after stuggling through a night there we relocated to a great litte place in Bondi beach call indys backpackers .... (which is where I am this very second). We've dont the bridge climb and also managed to get in a romantic meal for two in the revolving restaurant at the top of the AMP tower in the centre of sydney ... it was a great way to celebrate out 5 month anniversary!
Today we're heading off on a Whale watching cruise ... so hopefully we'll get to see a load of humpbacks! we've managed to do loads of shopping whilst we've been here ... all the useual cheesy things ... boomerangs ... stubbie coolers etc.
Rach flys to new zeland tomorrow at 11:20am ... and I fly on sunday at 22:15 I'll have two whole days in Sydney all on my todd .. Im thinking about treating myself to a night in a hotel somewhere in the city ... :o)
Well ... im fast running out of air time here ... so im going to have to go, but in conclusion ... Australia is a fantastic place and my trip has just confirmed what I already knew ... this is somewhere I want to live ...
See you all soon for a few stubbies ... with about a million photos!
