It’s been pretty hectic since returning to Sydney after our awesome week away in Byron Bay and the Gold Coast – we’ve spent most of our time manically searching for our farm work and, once we’d found the place we will be spending the next 3 months (it’s gonna be freaking awesome…more on this to come), we needed somewhere to stay in the city until we leave for Honeycomb Valley Farm in Nabiac (just a 5 hour train ride away from Sydney) next Sunday. We originally wanted to get an apartment so that we had our own space and didnt have to deal with the mess and lack of space of a backpacker hostel (remember how I recently moved away from staying in hostels?), but unfortunately every apartment we found fell through so we’ve ended up staying in Sydney Central Backpackers Hostel, just a few streets away from the main strip of Kings Cross, and it’s actually not half bad (review coming soon).
But anyway, enough about where we’ve been staying…what have we been up to? To be honest, not really a lot. Sydney is one of those cities where you can spend a lot of time doing nothing but still really enjoy yourself. It’s been heaps nice weather though, so the other day we thought, hey we should be enjoying this sunshine and topping up our Byron tans…’let’s go to the beach!’ So off to Manly we went with our friend Tash, actually for the first time since arriving in Sydney over 4 months ago. And it was lush. Unfortunately the beach was closed for swimming due to an insanely strong rip – some guy even had to be rescued by the very hunky lifeguard – but it was lovely all the same. I could live this summer beach life forever.
