Sydney Travel Blog› entry 10 of 163 › view all entries
today was my moving day, and the first day i would have to trudge around with my backpack - could be interesting!
dean 3 met me at bondi junction (as dean 2, cousin, was working) and we got a bus to rose bay (about 15 mins), then dean lugged my backpack up a big hill to dean 2's place! on the way up we met my other flatmate, ashley.
dean 3 and me headed back to his place to pick up his flatmates and we all walked the 5 mins to bondi beach- how cool! we caught a taxi to coogee beach where we caught a glimpse of the queens baton relay for the commonwealth games.
the weather was warm but not sunny but there were still hundreds of people out celebrating with barbies,etc. we had a beer in one place before heading to coogee beach hotel to meet up with a load more pommes! apparantly on the beach they broke the world reccrd for the longest airbed line! basically, about 600 people took there pink thong (flip flops) shaped lilos out and held on to each others ankles and it was a world record! i have a newspaper cutting i'll try and scan in. unfortunately i didnt see this as i was getting into the true ozzie way... drinking beer!!
few of us headed back early (9pm) to have a chinese and an early nite.
