You get the picture?!
Today we went on a Neighbours tour! YEEEEAAAAAAAA!!! and rather luckily the heat has been turned down a notch to a cool 35 so it was slightly more bareable today.
The whole gang was out today! I was up and ready at 9 humming the neighbours song untill I couldn't contain it any longer and woke everyone up around 10 ish.
We got to the Neighbours tour centre at midday and got on the bus where we were treated to some old episodes while we made our way to where we was being driven.
First stop was Erinsbourgh High! Although they don't use it anymore due to disputes with the locals....that was your first Neighbours FACT!
Next stop was the televison centre where they film most of the outdoor scene shots like Lassiders, Lou's Pub, Harrold cafe and Greese Monkeys etc.
We were greated by Janelle Timmins (Stingrays Mum) and we had a photo with her and got her autograph. She was really nice!
Austen had no idea who she was though!!! Or what half of the sets were!!!
Hey - they've all changed since the last time I watched it man!!!
The main thing that struck us all so far was how budget it is! The tour driver was telling us about all the ways the show saves money by a bit of clever photography. Seriously we were expecting the sets to be massive and more of a professional look than they were but it's actually tiny and it looks nothing like it does on screen!
It was really cool to be there on the sets but as I say (Austen) I didn't really recognise any of them as they were all relatively new!!!
After this we drove down to Ramsey Street - Now I know I'll recognise THAT!!!
The studios were only about a 5 minute drive away from it and everyone was very excited about going there (especially Nat and Em!!!)
It was sooooooooooo surreal when we got there.
It also seems a lot smaller in real life but IT WAS RAMSEY STREET MAN!!!!!
We've all seen it on TV for like 20 years or something, and we were actually there!!
It was sooooooooooo wierd!!!
We all wandered about taking photo's and stuff, and just basically hung out on the street!!!!
After about half an hour the bus driver dragged us all away and drove us back to Melbourne.
We wandered around shop shops in town after this, still in a daze from actually being 'in Neighbours'!!
Then I think we all just hung out in the hostel tonight to save a bit of cash.
Heh heh heh ahhhhhhhhh Neighbours..............
