Surf Camp

View Sydney ... To the Beach on LaurenLolz's travel map.

... was definatly not what I had intended. I got upset over several things, felt bad, left early, and change my whole itinerary. Surf camp, okay. Got on the bus, two hours later, arrive in Georra. Grab a bed, have a little orientation, and hit the beach. I don't believe brochures anymore. 'Meters from the beach' was probably 1.5 miles, I know this cause I ran it the next morning. And when you get to the beach... walk down the beach 1 mile to the surf. With a 5,865lb. surfboard. Yea no. I should have just gotten a lesson on Bondi or Bali. The rooms sucked! Don't get the bottom bunk, because you can't sit up, there is no room. And I was stuck in a room with Germans girls, sorry I thought I went to AUSTRALIA not GERMANY! Not cool. The food was ok. Meh. And the surfing.. in a wetsuit, not my style and difinatly not cold enough to wear one. What did I learn you ask? What I already knew. Psh that. Bring me back to Sydney thank you.

Got back, and the boys were waiting for me.. literally outside of the van. They also got me a room before I came back, thank you, and then we went out for food and drinks. Today I'm just chillin' on the computer, and doing laundry. And going to the Aquarium. It's overcast today, and while I can take pictures .. it's just not the best day.

I'm sick of making mistakes. Before I had decided to work and travel in Oz, I didn't even care about coming, figured I'd hit it if I had time. I wanted to take my $$$ and see what I could see till I had no more. Those places being Japan, Thailand, Indonesia, Fiji .. and after reading a little bit about it Samoa. So, having changed my mind about the whole situation .. I'm starting school in June. Not working, taking my money and getting a flight to Cairns, QLD (GBR and white water rafting). Thailand for 2 weeks (either April 9th or May 10th ish). Indo for a week. Fiji for a week and Samoa for like 5 days. When I'm done. Sydney .. maybe for the Blue Mountains, if I feel up to it or Byron Bay and Nimbal. Then Japan .. then home. What I'm homesick. But being a nice 30 hours from home (that's crazy when you look at it like that, cause its like 35,000 miles), I'm not coming back just yet. So now... Maybe work for a week or two. March is mehheehehe month not really good (well not as good as April or May) for the northern or southern hemispheres. Still the rainy season. :(
