2 weekends ago i flew with lara to sydney. we booked the flight quite spontaineusly and stayed there from thursday till sunday.
the flight to sydney took us about 1 1/2 hours. when we arrived we first tried to find our hostel. unfortunately we had no city map or anything like that but having asked a lot of people we finally found our hotel ( actually it was just around 2 corners from the trainstation were we arrived, but who could have known that??). the hostel we had booked was quite dirty and the promised breakfast were just kellogs or toasts without anything...great. however we werent there to spent our time in the hostel so it didnt matter. of cours we wanted to see the opera hous and the harbour bridge as soon as possible so we caught a bus to go there. unfortunately the bus drivers couldnbt reaaly say us wich bus we had to catch so we just drove around (but we ended at a shopping mall). after all we finally arrived at the opera house and it was just amazing!! i had never thought that i would really stand one time infront of it!! the opera house, one of the symbols of australia which i just had seen at a lot of pictures). of course we took thousands of pictures and just felt like japanese in the evening we wanted to eat in a restaurant, however they were all sooo expensive so we ended at mc donalds. here in australia is really a mc donalds everywhere!! we took our food and ate it again in front of the opera house= harbour bridge - it was such a great atmosphere!! after that we strated a photoshooting. the people whoi wathced us must have really thought that we ve turned crazy!! at night we were very tired, but i wanted to walk around and see whats going on. our hostel was at kings cross at we noticed that we stayed at the red light area but we lived really close to the city center so nevertheless we were satisfied with our hostel. while we were walking along the streets a girl came to us and said that we can go in al club for free. of course we didnt want to miss that possiblity and went there ( although just wearing jumpers and shorts). the club was all right but the music wasnt that good so we didnt stay there so long.
on friday we ve done a cuty tour and a bondai beach tour. at night we wanted to go out and this time we met a boy he told us that we can get free entrance and champagne in a club, so we went there. unfortunately there werent many people so we just drank our champagne (which tasted disgusting) and then left the club. we went to the famous oxford street to see whats going on there. it wasnt that great like we expected it to be, but finally we found a bar/club were we went in - again for free there were agian not to many people but this time we stayed a bit longer, danced and found some boys who offered us a drink. having spent a while there we went back to the club were we ve been the first time in hope that there were finally more people. unfortunately we were still nearly on our own, but that didnt matte. we went on the dance floor and danced with about 3 other poeple
on saturday morning we went to the famous bondai beach to go surfing there. the waves there were really high, actually to high for beginners. at that beach we could finally see the real "surfer boys" that usually come in our mind while thinking about australia. we had just booked the hostel for 2 nights, because the plane on sunday left really early in he morning so we thought that we could just stay at a restaurant/bar and then gining to the airport so that we didnt have to pay for one more night. our evening began at 9 o clock. we first went to an italian restaurant and spent about 2 hours there. after that we went to the oxford street, looking for a mc cafe. unfortunately we couldnt find one so we caught a bus to the city centre. there we stayed at a mc donald till about 1.30. actually we wanted to take a taxi to the airport and spent the rest of the time there, but they told us that the airport is closed becuase planes are not allowed to fly during the night. so we wanted to take a bus back to kings cross to go to a bus there, but we missed the last bus and so we de3cideed to walk there. at about three o clock we arrived at another mc donalds at kings cross, but didnt stay there because it was to overcrowded. then we went to a cafe (without drinking anything) but it closed ten minutes later, so we went to a fast food shop just to sit down, but also that closed a few minutes later so we had to change again our places and find a new place were we coulkd sit down. our last hour we spent at a bar, totally tired and powerless. at 4.45 we went to our hostel to catch the shuttle bus which the girl from the reception had promised us to call. however the shuttle didnt come and because we didnt want to spent more time with drunken people walking down the roads, we called a taxi to bring us to the airport.
i didnt really notice the flight, because i just slept the whole time. all in all we had a great time that weekend. sydney is really bis and nice, but i couldnt imagine to live there...
the last weekend we went to the beach, listened to music, danced and sang, it was really funny.
the school here is getting really boring at the moment.
today i ve got my last basketball match.
although i found new freinds here with whom i spent my time, i notice how important everybody in germany is to me, its just more fun to do anything with you, guys!
