Tuesday turned out to be a really fun day, apart from all the sappy-ness of Valentines day *wretches* I met Bey at the Internet Café around the corner from my hostel and we stayed there gaming for a few hours, playing Counter-Strike (I suck), Minecraft (I miss it) and Left for Dead II (I forgot how fun it is ^,^). We then headed to the Italian a few doors down for some very yummy noms (decently priced too) before heading to ManaBar - The gaming pub we went to on my first night in Melbs. They were holding a trivia night (gaming related of course) and we entered, with an old school friend of Bey’s joining us. The first round we sucked so bad we were the last team, but we caught up in the last two rounds and made last but one >=D One question asked for the six super heroes in the upcoming Avengers film… I’m glad to have got 6 points for the team after freaking out ^,^
Wednesday, My last day in Melbs saw me checking out of the hostel and having Bey pick me up ^,^ We went back to his house and chilled all day, playing pool and video games :D My flight was around 8pm so we headed to the Airport just after 6 and grabbed some food in the airport while we waited.
Leaving Melbourne totally sucked (And still does now T.T) and I’m looking forward to coming back. I’m gonna start saving as soon as I get home and once I have the money, I’m coming back to see heaps more, hopefully with a Working Holiday Visa =D I’m deffo going to do the Melbs - Adelaide drive since I missed the Great Ocean Road this time, and those two cities have been my favourite in Aus (I still love Canberra & Sydney though!)
Thursday I mostly chilled at the hostel, doing my washing and shizzle. I popped out to have a gander at Paddy’s market and the local area, to pick up some food for the week.
Friday I went to Darling Harbour via the Monorail and went into the Aquarium. I bought a combi ticket for the Aquarium, Wildlife World and Sydney Tower. I wanted to go into the wildlife world simply for the fact there was a Crocodile there, and its the only Aussie animal I hadn’t seen xD Anyway, onto the Aquarium:
And onto the Wildlife World:
Saturday (Yesterday) I went to the Sydney Eye (Tower). Feeling not too good about it, I decided to eat first, and enjoyed a baked potato (Not often found in Aus) As you enter you get to watch a 4D film-thing, which was scenes around sydney in 3D, and you get the whole ‘touch’ feeling, so we experienced the ground shaking, water sprayed on us and even bubbles being blown at us when the film was ‘underwater’ A little cheesy, but a good idea ^,^
So Up I went in the tower, the lift ride not being as terryifying as the Rockefeller Centre in New York xD Took a few pics, bought a gift for someone (spoilers) and then headed straight back down ^,^
Afterwards I went to the National Maritime Museum, where I got to go onboard the HMAS Vampire Destroyer and the HMAS Onslow Submarine =D That was pretty epic, especially the submarine as you had to climb through the small doorways xD
After the vessels I went into an exhibition being held called ‘Aqua’ which was an interesting show/thing about wate (duh). Not so much as the water cycle and stuff, but the impact it has on lives, and how people take advantage of it and how it can have devastating effects (Natural Disasters, poisoned water in third-world countries)
And that brings me to today, where I’v chilled all day, and that’s what I’m going to do all day =D
