No place like home...Thank goodness !!! For those of you that know us, you'll already know the story, basically we decided that we've both worked enough (I've been working for 11 years, Danielle for 11 Months) and that we deserve some long overdue R&R and decided to take in some sights....enjoy

The Staffords in Sydney

AUSTRALIA | Friday, 24 August 2007 | Views [582] | Comments [1]

Well, what a lucky guy I am, not only do I get the pleasure of travelling with Danielle, but also her 'kid' sister Kaggle-butt-head as well (more commonly known as Kayleigh, but together we can change that!).

For the second country in a row we've been in a 'proper' hostel, with facilities to cook etc., but Danielle has still managed to avoid Dorms. We've taken in most of the sights in Sydney (Harbour Bridge, Opera House, Manly, Bondi.....) and some of the lesser known 'sights' including the infamous 'Route 69' pub crawl that Kayleigh 'invited' us on (when I say invited, she actually made commission on selling us tickets!). What a night out with her boss Dan, where Kayleigh and Dan left me for ages (Dan adds: 'diddums') to have some 'sister time' - of course the only way to fill the time was to ahve some lovely shots at the bar (smelly pussy, slippery frog etc)!

We also had a lovely Italian and cooked meal (what luxury) at Dan's cousin Suzys (and Adam and bump) place, it was scarily nice to be in a 'house' again!

We didn't really get up to too much else in Sydney to be honest, and got a bit bored of staying in one place (think we've gotten too used to moving on every two days or so....whats home going to be like?!?) - although it was nice to cook again (of course we had spag bol, chili, tacos!).

Now off for some adventure in NZ.....
