In Sydney! part 2
No issues in customs, thank God. I knew I was prepared, but there was definitely the fear in the back of my mind that id get detained like I was in London a few years back. (if you haven't heard that story, its great - remind me to tell you sometime)
So my backpack feels WAAAY heavier than I remembered. I should've put all the parts together & tried it on that way as I was packing. I'm gonna have to purge, quickly - its a little ridiculous. I'm stooped over & I have to keep moving or I might keel over. Thankfully, I don't have to wear it much.
I'm on the bus to the hostel & so far nothing really looks very foreign tho it is weird (& awesome) that everyones driving on the "wrong" side of the road.
Ok now at the hostel & despite walking into my room & waking an unhappy frenchman, things are looking good: I've already made friends with some Americans & Canadians on the rooftop of the hostel. Yay!
The pic is of the view of Sydney harbor bridge & the opera house from my hostel roof. Awesome.
I'm gonna go walk around, get myself acquainted with the city & get some food now.
I'm so grateful & happy for:
~ holding my own with strangers
~ a good flight
~ I'm actually IN Australia!!!
