Basia and I headed to seaworld today despite the fantastic hangover I had after drinking moonshine the night before and the fact I only had 4 hours sleep. The dolphin show was first which was super cool, but the sun was very very hot - I'm glad I took suncream and a hat! Basia convinced me to go on a log flume type ride called Atlanta - I NEVER do rides as I'm a total wimp and get really motion sick. She went on first and told me it was really slow and gentle........my arse! The only thing that stopped me hurling my guts up was the G-force - I couldn't move, couldn't breath, couldn't scream, couldn't puke! The ride totally drenched us from head to foot meaning that we had to walk around for the rest of the day in soaking clothes - by the time the whale show was on at 2:30 we were both shivering uncontrollably, so called it a day around 4pm. Getting back to the hostel and into a warm shower and dry clothes was amazing! The hostel had a pub crawl organised that night, but I wimped out after only a couple of drinks as I still felt rough from yesterday's drinking. Plus, a group of 8 Australian guys were in the hostel and they really dominated the whole pubcrawl to the point of it not being fun. Basia & I headed back to the hostel and hung out with some Brazilian guys instead.
