i got sunburned xmas day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
so yeah christmas on bondi-i did the typical backpacker xmas day but hey i'm in sydney, its xmas and it had to be done. it was so strange xmas morning-i mean at home its cold, usulaly raining, no one leaves the house, u watch tv all day, eat lots and drink. fall aleep at 9pm watching vicor of dipley!!! here i was on a bus at 12pm on the way to bondi beach. the streets were packed with people-i mean all the shops were open.even clothes shops!!! when we got to the bneach i was expecting hundreds of thousands of mad, drunk backpackers when actaully it was quite civilised! the beach was full but u could find a place to sit. there was lots of families having picnics. the policy on no alochol on the beach was very strict and there was police checking bags as soon as u got there which was good because a lot of alcohol, and backpackers on a beach doesnt mix well! it was a very surreal day-i mean i was there with a pair of shorts on, an xmas hat watching a guy dressed as santa on a surf board and an australian tv show filming him! so yeah i may be in the background to that!!! am glad i did it but not the expereinece i thought it wouldbe! also as much as it was nice to have sun, i was pining for some snow, (or rain) and dark mornings! spending time with my family and playing with my nieces toys!(sorry ellie!)
so yeah-xmas in the sun cool but at teh risk of sounding extremely chessy- there is definetly no place like home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
