Let's go back to where we left off... Bobs mansion..uh yes... We left Wollongong feeling refreshed and ready for the big city. thank goodness for gps which helped Ashton navigate around Sydney to the outskirts where we parked our van. To get to the Sydney opera house (in the central business area) It was a 10 minute walk from our site to the tram station, then 30 minutes on the tram to reach our final destination. The central harbour was our starting spot for our three days in Sydney.

Sydney & Coffs Harbour, Australia
G'day! How are ya going? (Yes,that's Aussies slang..and we're still not sure how to respond) Sorry to disappoint, but this blog is not nearly as entertaining as the last. Currently we are enjoying a mid day break in the shade, sipping vanilla coke on a hot, (35*) sunny day. (Sidebar: Can we still buy vanilla cokes in stoon? Ohh remember the cherry cokes? Mmm ..) We are nicely settled into a hostel at Coffs Harbour, which is a really active little city. Our camper van is parked in the lot beside the "Aussitel" hostel. We pay half price to use all of the hostel facilities while continuing to sleep in the ole Donkey Van. This hostel is super cool, as it's small, Clean, comfortable and full of great people. It has a pool and a shed full of kayaks, canoes, boogie boards, surf boards , tennis rackets etc. that are rented out for free.
