WTF Mate I'm In Australia

Australia 2010

So its my fourth day in Australia and its been amazing!!!! My fellow mates are kick ass and my room is pretty sweet. But who cares about that?! Our first day here and we found out we are all of legal drinking age 18+ so of course we went and go a beer but then found out you have to BYOB at restaurants. So we sent the boys out for a beer run as we waited for out food, I ordered an Australia classic (potato wedges with sour cream and sweet chili sauce) Yumm delicious! As the boys came back we had our first Australian Beer (VB) it cost out the wazoo for a bloody 12 pack, $45!!! Saturday evening we went out to dinner, it gets dark here very early 5:30 pm! And the Aussies dress to the nines when they go out! Sadly, internet usage here is limited, so I will only get on when I am at Uni (University of Wollongong prounced Wall-en-gong)
Sunday we went to the beach and man waves here are gnarly! 9 FEET!!!!!!!! So we've decided to take a gandar this weekend and go down to Canberra for surfing! The Aussies think its bloody freezing here but its only 20 Celusis and the water is 18 Celusis. Feels Great to me!!! Thankfully, because I packed alot of summer clothes! I explored North and South Beach and took lots of pictures, I've gotten into photography since I've got here.
Monday was full of adventures, we went to the Sumbai Zoo for a special VIP tour. I feed the joeys, pet the kolas, and had a python around my neck!!! Don't worry lots of pictures and videos will be upload when I arrive back in the States. We also took a drive on the Grand Pacific Drive, and with my fear of heights I didn't realize how high we were till I got to the top of Cliffhanger Mtn. and I freaked out! But no worries, I had my mates there ;)
And last evening we had our welcoming dinner at Mylan Vietnamese Restuarant. We had so many entrees and appetizers to split between the group and it was delicious. And don't worry we had very good wine between all of us. We proceeded to the nearest bar called Hotel Illawera. My first drink was on the bartender because his impression of my 6 inches heels. But I thinks its just because I'm an American girl and well you know how the Aussies love the American Girls ;)
