I had an amazing goodbyeparty in Amsterdam. If you forget about the fact that I got a bit sick of the pubcrawl-vodka. (It had to happen one time or later….) But before that, it was amazing. We went ice-skating and had a great time togheter! I spent the very last day to say goodbye to everyone, it was sad, but I’m pretty sure I’ll meet you all again. Somewhere. Sif, Ben, JD and Maiken went with me to the airport, before we said goodbye there. I’m happy I met you all, it was 3 amazing (drunk) months! Now – REHAB!
And then. I headed for Melbourne. After 25 hours on the plane, I finally got there. It was about 3.30 am local time when the plane landed, and about one hour later, I met Scott at the airport! :) Finally!!
Btw, when we landed in Dubai, I had to find the toilet. When I opened the door, I got scared! The toilets were this toilets whitout seats, where you just stand over a hole in the floor. Waaah! But luckily, before I decided to try it out, I checked out what was behind the wall in the middle of the room, and there I found normal toilets :P
The first day in Melbourne, we went to the zoo, to the beach AND the Eureka Skydecker! It was most amazing ever! :) At the zoo, we saw alot of cool animals, but my favourite was the KOALA! They were sleeping, but gosh, how cute! After couple of hours, we went to the beach and ate fish’n chips. It was awesome. Sandbeach as far as you could see and people enjoying the sun everywhere! My favourite spot for sure. And then. Eureka Skydecker! Melbournes tallest building, where the top is covered with gold! Check it out: http://www.eurekaskydeck.com.au/ And guess what… I SURVIVED THE EDGE!
After all this, we did NOT go to the christmas street to get the right christmas feeling. We did NOT enjoy all the houses with beutiful christmaslights and people singing christmascarols, and kids in their pyjamas being excited because of the christmas. We did NOT drive around for hours and hours trying to find our way out. Nope. We did’nt. At all. I’m sure its cool. But we didnt go there. And I dont want to either. Hah.
Christmasday was spent with Scott’s family. It was kinda different, but soooo nice! When we woke up, we drove over to his parents, they live in a cozy area, in a big australian house! The first thing I get is a can of beer, and after that can, I got a new one. And a new one. And a new one. Or did I want red wine instead? No problem, here you go! So while everyone is sitting on the veranda, the chicken with beercans in their ass are on the barbie (Australian slang for on the grill :D), and the sun is shining and everyone are happy, I cant help thinking about Norway. Beutiful Norway, my friends and my family. I almost missed it, but then Scott’s aunt served me grilled shrimps, the blind dog came and sniffed my toes and the birds were singing in the treetop above me, and I didnt miss Norway at all. Sorry friends and family, I love you heaps, but Australia is most amazing ever, and I really enjoy it. Its different, but different in a good way. Hope you all had a good christmas with alot of good food and nice presents :)
