Alright Guys, so we’re here hanging out at Sydney Harbour.  Just a short hour and a half journey from Gold Coast Airport, we have arrived in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.  We just landed in Sydney, Australia.  Been waiting for this for a long time.  The next three days, we’re here. Check out a soccer game tonight, the Wanderers.  Meet up with some friends and have a good time.  We’re at the airport right now. Got to figure out a way to get to downtown. Let’s do it! We got the bags, headed over to Sydney Harbour.  The YHA Sydney Harbour on the Rocks.  We’re here at the Air Train.  It was $17.40 for a one-way to downtown.  We’re going to get off at the Circular Quay exit.  It’s actually pronounced Circular Key you moron not Quuuay.  Jaycation Nation we’re out here in Sydney, Sydney Harbour.  Right in front of me is the Sydney Harbour Bridge, we got some cruise ships around here. We got my first look at right now at the Sydney Opera House.  We’re here at the Sydney Harbour YHA on the Rocks. Couldn’t check-in because I got here early.  Here’s my little gripe session right here.  So you can’t check-in until 2 o’clock and they don’t have luggage hold for you so you have to pay five bucks for a locker. Granted that’s not that much but you’re still paying five bucks for a locker. And the WiFi is not free, if you want fast WiFi. So I like it, it’s clean, it’s a nice hostel, a little expensive but it’s kind of annoying. We’re walking down the Rocks, a really hilly area.  Some music going on, we got a little street fair, a lot of people roaming around checking out the tents.  We’re walking over to the Rocks Café.So here we are at the Rocks Café going to try out a Crocodile Burger.  Hi! (Hi.) Walking in.  (Walking in, Alright.)  Just me. (OK, inside and outside so anywhere you prefer) Let’s sit outside.  (Please.) Cool, Thank you. Take my first bite out of the Crocodile Burger.  Let’s check it out. Mmmm, Crocodile’s good.  It almost taste like, it’s very creamy, like a little limey taste to it and it’s almost like a Turkey Burger but it’s Crocodile.  Yup.  I was that hungry and it was that good.  In the mood for some ice cream now.  So Jaycationers we’re here by the Sydney Harbour.  We’re hanging out, right behind me is a cruise ship and the Sydney Opera House.  It’s a little grey today, I’m waiting for the sky to get a little more blue so we can take some nice pictures, take some good shots but it looks like it’s about to start sprinkling so we got some time.  About to go to the Wanderers Game tonight, check out some Soccer, hang out with Kellie and Phil and soak in the Sydney lifestyle over here.  So remember what Maddy said back when he dropped me off back at the Airport.  There’s one place in downtown Sydney called Jackson, corner of Jackson and something. They got good Fish and Chips and Ribs.  Jackson’s on George, right there. We are in Sydney at the Starbucks Coffee, it’s real near Jackson’s on George and the Shangri-La so if you’re looking for your mug, come straight here. It’s near the Rocks. So not even the Gold Coast had these Tumblers. After walking around for like 20 minutes, found it. Gelatissimo. Let’s check it out. Need some Ice Cream. Got Pistachio and Salted Caramel. Man, I’m tired. It’s back to the hostel for a nap! At the rooftop of my hostel, there’s the Opera House and the bridge, this is awesome, this is really cool. We’re off to the Sydney Wanderers Game with Kellie and Philly. Philly is about to pick me up and were gonna go to the game. I’m here with Philly! (Hey,Hey!) Cheers, Philly. Where we at buddy? (We are at Downtown Leichhardt, a local pub. We are at The Royal. Good food, good beer, good times.) Nice man. We met at the Running of the Bulls in 2013 and been friends since then. (That’s right.)   We’re headed to the Sydney Wanderers, Perth Game. Go Wanderers! (That’s it.) I got FC Barcelona on of course. (We’ll get him a jersey!) He’ll get me a jersey! What are we drinking? (We’ve got a Golden Chancer, James Squire’s, good beer.) It’s good stuff. We’ll have a couple of these tonight. Cheers! (Cheers!) So we’re here with Kellie and Phil! (Hello!) We’re at the Wanderers, what’s this stadium called? (Pirtek Stadium, Parramatta, Western Sydney.) Nice! (Yeah.) Game starts in about half an hour. (Yes!) We’re gonna check it out and have some beers. (Yes. Many Beers.)   I got the jersey on, Phil loaned me the jersey. (Hey, hey! We got the winning side on here) We got the winning side on. I got an FC Barcelona jersey too so we’re both winners tonight. (That’s it!) Now it’s time for some pre-game introductions. Ronald’s a Wanderers fan! WE SING FOR WANDERERS! (WHO DO WE SING FOR?!) WE SING FOR WANDERERS! And on the 62nd minute Star Forward Romeo Castelen scored a goal for the home team the Wanderers. So I got a beef pie, Phil says it’s crap (it does.) but I’ll try it. We’ll see how I feel after. A few minutes later, the Perth Glory strike back and score a penalty kick goal to tie the game. Behind their supportive fans, the Wanderers rally back and win the game 2-1! WINNERS! YEAHH! WANDERERS!! We got pie! Yeah! Hiiii. Newtown Pies. I don’t know what kind of pie I got it’s like Bacon and something. (Bacon and meat!) Bacon and meat? (Bacon and meat.) What do you got? (I went a bacon, cheese and avocado.) See, healthy! Avocado! (Oh la la!) That that’s good fat for you. (That is.) See your fat down. (Nothing like good fat at midnight!) We’re here at Coogee Beach. Right behind us is a great view of Bondi Beach. We are here at Manly Wharf. Welcome to Manly Beach!
