22nd November - Shangri La
Haha it was my turn to surprise Sarah, she thought we were due to stay in a rubbish hostel that she wasn't looking forward to, but no, we stayed in a fancy smancy hotel. Ha that will learn her!
We got a room overlooking the Sydney harbour with the bridge and the opera house, all very nice. We got a nice bed and a huge tv to watch as well. Luxuries we aren't used to, I even had a bath. We even got to wear matching dressing gowns and slippers, we even have a video of Sarah dancing around in her outfit, but you can never see it as she has sworn 'death and pain' if anyone does see it.
We have managed to see some cricket now as we went to see New South Wales take on Western Australia at the SCG. A great game during a freakily hot day in Sydney, 38 degrees. Sarah even mentioned how hard she was finding it sipping beer and sitting watching a game of cricket in that heat, hmmm life was really tough for her at that moment.
We could only stay for the first innings as we wanted to see some of the Fox studios area and get back to the hotel obviously. That night we watched the rest of the game on the TV whilst having some fancy room service and a superb bottle of red we picked up from the Lindemans cellar door a week ago. Perfect.
It was certainly tough to leave the hotel for the Sydney YHA the next day.
