My week with welcome to travel! What an amazing week!
my welcome to Australia was more perfect than I could have imagined. Iv met some of the greatest people who also just arrived in Australia. People who I have made plans to carry on traveling with. And of course Adam and Daryl the two most lovely, fun amazing guys. They completely made the trip with there amazing enthusiasm and of course Daryls amazing fact! (Ask him all about koalas)
So we started with a meet and greet getting to know everybody followed by a tour around Melbourne . This was fantastic. We were shown a lot of things I wouldn't of noticed walking around by myself. Make sure you have plenty of charge in your camera or phone for amazing photo opportunities. We finished the day with a big family meal. (It was like a big travel family by the end!)
There's heaps more things you get up to during the week such as skydive! This was extra but what an opportunity! This in my opinion is a must do! Its the best view of the trip!!
My favourite two days by far was heading out the city and into Mornington bay and Phillip island. Not just because of the wine tasting but also watching the little fairy Penguins waddle home and getting up close with koalas and kangaroos! I done my first surf lesson too and if they got me standing they can get anyone standing!! It was incredible. Those two days felt like a true Aussie experience!
Not only surfing the next day back in st kilda was more of a relaxed day. Catching some sun on the beach and of course a bit of stand up paddle boarding! It's a must try.
So not only do these guys plan awesome activities they set you up ready for Australia. They set up a bank and help you out with work. And once that's done it's time to party! We went on a city bar crawl. Another great way of seeing the city! And finally BBQ! A true Aussie cuisine on the roof top of the hostel with a cold beer! Perfect way to end a perfect trip!
