Go Scandinavia...

I keep wondering how many Australians I've actually met while I've been here.
I met one last night and I'm sure most of the people running this hostel are Aussies (well, one is Italian). There's one weird Australian guy living here, he's name is Bill and he looks like a bum and spooks everyone out. Other than that, I seem to surround myself with Scandinavians. Weird. I share a room with three girls from Norway and yesterday I met another Finn at a BBQ next door. And then these two girls from Aland came along (can't write it correctly on this keyboard but it's an island belonging to Finland where everyone speaks Swedish). It's kind of funny, really.
I attempted to swim at Bondi yesterday but damn, the waves were something fierce. So me, being a wuss, just had a quick dip. We did a lovely scenic walk from Bondi to Bronte (we were supposed to get to Coogee but the path didn't go that far). Fantastic views. I love all the walking we do, though I need to buy proper walking shoes.
Off to Manly today. No more sunbathing for me though, ever. I've been convinced by all the skin cancer clinics and stuff *reaches for sunblock*.

  • Quick, quick...

    A very quick fly-by post from Darwin, Internet time is running out...It's been nice and warm here for the past week, though quite windy so not as bad…

  • Pics of The Rock Tour

    Ugh. If ever there was a place where I've felt completely an outsider, it would be Alice Springs. The Aboriginals here are scary and, quite frankly,…

  • Wineries on the left, wineries on the right...

    Hmm, so apparently McLeod's Daughters is filmed in Barossa Valley. Wouldn't have thought that, since when I watched it I never saw anything…
