So... We're Here!!!

Bondi Beach - Sydney!

sunny 20 °C

After Italian meals on both Saturday and Sunday night, we woke up at half four on monday morning stinking of garlic but ready for the flight. We checked in at terminal 3 and then headed to the cafe to have a drink with Ashleys Grandma and Grandad and Hannahs Mum and Dad, whilst watching the planes take off and listening to air traffic control. We headed for our flight which was scheduled for 8:20am. There was a few teary goodbyes but we set off and within an hour was landing at Heathrow.
At this point we were more than starving so est est est was our first port of call, Hannah had Scrambled egg and smoked salmon on toast and Ashley had " a buffalo mozzerello, chirizo sausage, sun-ripened tomato and spinach panini' which he claims was the 'best thing ever'. After a wee spot of shopping and desperatley trying to get rid of English coins we headed for the plane and boarded for 12:15pm. The thought of twelve hours on this plane sucked, BUT... we were more than amused by the multimedia entertainment system for around half an hour, but even ashley was bored of this pretty soon, this is around 5 films later. The food was good and Hannah got her veggie meals about half an hour before everyone else... which was GOOD! We ended up sat next to a lady who had been delayed around 24 hours, which made us feel better, as we were moaning but she was not. We got talking to her and she thought she could get us some jobs, so we exchanged numbers and she promised to ring.
We were so relieved when we touched down at singapore but there was not much to do, since we didnt have any money. We made full use of the 'relaxation area' basically a bed, and the foot massager until the harsh realisation dawned upon us that this machine was full of singapore sams sweaty feet and after this we soon left!
Seven hours later, and some much needed sleep there was the call from the captain telling us we were ready for descent. We arrived in sydney at around 6:55pm and it was dark. The view was amazing, the whole city lit up and views of the harbour bridge and the opera house were stunning, and at this point we were very excited, to which the delayed lady (lilliana) responded 'i've seen it all before', and to celebrate she kindly gave us a bottle of Champagne to celebrate our stay!
After Customs, Hannah being searched and asked 'do you have the shoes on you that you wear on the farm', getting our visa, picking up our luggage and finally getting a taxi we arrived at our apartments... which were nice! We dumped our bags and headed towards the beach, but for food, and desperate to sample local cuisine and culture we found ourselves sat in mcdonalds eating big macs and fillet o' fish listening to Richard Ashcroft! We headed home after this, unpacked and fell asleep for around 10:30pm. We were excited for our day tomorro in sydney!!!
