In Sydney taking care of our baby
So what have I done since I last wrote? hmmm, not too much, but at the same time so much. I got to Sydney February 13th. We're staying in Panania, which is the suburbs in Sydney with Richard, a friend of ours, which is really convinient since we had a lot of things to do. We opened a bank account, got our tax file number, got a phone number and been cooking up a storm. We've been to a few bars and have exclusively been meeting Irish people, not that I have anything against Irish people but my god why are there so many here, and where are the Australians in AUSTRALIA?!?!?!
I've also been to a beach ONCE since I left montreal, and as always I got too cocky and got a bad burn just like everytime I go to the beach for the first time!
So the most important thing we've done is we bought our baby; a 1977 toyota hiace.
We've been spending most of our time working on him. We got the carborator reconditioned and got most the rust off the body. So it looks pretty good and doesn't sound too bad either for a 30 year old car.
We've also been pimping out the inside. He looks pretty good so far. Now let me tell you a bit about the inside. So far it has a full kitchen, a double bed, a table, a stove, a sink, a fridge, and an OVEN hahahahah so i can bake a cake on the side of the road if I want. Oh and recently we added a fully stocked bar. Yupyup all the comforts of home in a van, I just hope it will last us the year.
Well our van should be ready to take off tomorrow, so we're finishing up everythign and moving in all our stuff. So our real trip will finally begin.
We also plan to go picking some fruit in the very near future. Just not too sure what it is we'll be doing yet. I'll know in a few days
