A visitor from England
Up to now, for the most part, I've been travelling by myself and seeing new faces. Now I'm joined by a friend from England. I'm more than happy to carry on the way things have been going. Hopefully, we'll get on okay, as we'll also be travelling in a camper van around New Zealand for a month.
Said my farewells to Pat today and thank you very much for looking after me for the last few days.
I revisited Manley beach. It must be great to have a beach like this near your door step. There are people jogging, playing beach volley ball and surfers trying to catch the waves. And the inevitable tourists like me.
The return ferry trip takes me back to near Sydney Opera House an another look at it. At about 6pm I head to the airport by train to meet my hanger-on. Beware if you make the same trip as you are charged an extra fare at the airport to come in; the station is privately owned.
At 7:30 pm we finally meet. We travel back by train to hostel where we are staying for the night called, 'X-Base' in Sydney. Unfortunately, the hostel is next door to a nightclub so it's 3 in the morning before everything quietens down and we can sleep.
