|We spent most of today on T'internet trying to find ANY hostel/hotel available in Sydney over Crimbo and New Year.
What a nightmare!!
EVERYWHERE is already booked up. We have found a couple of stinkers available but these are still like triple the normal price and it'll be hard to part with GBP50.00 a night to stay in a mixed dorm!!!
After about 6 hours searching we had a beer and some chow in an Australian bar - secretly hoping we might find a nice Aussie to put us up over the yule tide period!!
We did actually get chatting to a nice Irish dude who lives in Sydney but he was travelling and homeless as well at the mo but he very kindly offered to look into it for us.
I think we should just moor up a couple of Lilos in the harbour but there are probably 'rules' against that sort of thing!!
Anyway we had a cool night with some 'different' cocktails and some free whisky!
