Sight Seeing/The Woodduck....

Over the course of the next week or so i did plenty of sight seeing like visiting the Sydney Opera house and taking a day trip to the Blue mountains, which is a must do by the way! The weather conditions could have been slightly better, it was tipping down most days which kind of reminded me of home.Sydney is a bit like visiting London, at first bit dull and Gray but gets better the longer you stay.As the day's flew by, i started to get to know people as you tend to pass them going up or down the hundreds of stairs several times a day.The hostel its self ...well it wasn't great but the location was fabulous and rooftop had a brilliant view.One of the things i noticed during my stay, was that there was a huge amount of German backpackers which was not great,as i wanted to meet a wide range of backpackers from all over the world.The hardest thing i would have to do in this period  would be finding a job, the thing is, i only came to Australia with $280.My accommodation was $150 a week for a 12 bed dorm, soooo that took a big chunk out which then left me with $130 and money was running out fast, cheap meal's it is then huge variety on the menu was pasta or...... noodles :).I was wondering what i was going to do, thought i would have to return home.Luckily i bought a return plane ticket before i went to oz just in case, so at least i had something to fall back on .I tried really really hard to get a job as i knew i would regret going home.After endless amounts of phone calls and yes i did have credit ;) i finally found some work only for 2 days, but 2 days would do, anything for a bit of cash to get me another week at the hostel.After that i managed to find a job and stick with that for a while which enabled me to save up for my trip up the East Coast ! I ended up staying in this hostel for 10 weeks as i met a good crowd of  people staying long term.Over this period we all had endless amounts of laughter and  had  great times together drinking lots of Goon :) .For those of you that don't know what Goon  is,it is boxed wine containing fish eggs and tastes like... well i'll  let you find out. hmmm..
