Big Breakfasts and Bondi Market

22nd October

sunny 22 °C

Well we woke up early this morning due to our relatively later than usual night, and decided that we couldnt be bothered making food, so we wandered down to Bondi front to a small surfers bar on the beach front and had one 'big brekky' and one 'veggie brekky', was really good and they managed to make a greasy full english healthy, i even had spinach! yum! So after this we went to Mango surf shop and Ashley bought a t-shirt, which is nice. Then we wandered down the road and noticed some market shops, we had a look round and bought some bangles, then walked further and there was a HUGE market, it was ace, sold loads of nice things. It had like local designers selling there hand made clothing, and hand made jewellery and soap. They also had these cute like tiles which you could have your own pictures printed onto, very nice, but we're not here long enough to have it done. We also found this book shop where we got a rough guide to Thailand and a Lonely Planet guide to Singapore, these were $11 altogether, so a bargain!! After reading the books we also learnt that Pattaya, in Thailand the place we were supposed to be going (the accomodation link in the last blog) is absolutley awful, the main attraction is prostitutes and drugs, apparantly it says that the welcome sign to pattaya also advertises ecstasy, so yer, not going there anymore!!! We've decided now that we might take a plane down to Phuket which is a small island just off thailand, which is soooo nice!!! a lot different to Pattaya, but a bit more pricey, havent found any accomodation there yet though! Anyway, back to today, well we didnt buy much more, i was lured in by a nice purse which i bought for $20, the second one i've bought this trip, but not to worry, not that expensive. At this point it was pretty late and wanting to prepare for our surfing we went home and had tea, seems like a short day, but we did only get up at like twelve!! xx
