Australia: Sydney Free Walking Tour

After taking a quick shower after arrival in the hostel, went to the common area. Got some brochures and saw a FREE walking Tour.

I met a fellow guest of the hostel named David. He was with his friends Dean and Joe. So we heeded to the START POINT of the tour near the Circular Quay Railway Station .

Based from the map guide- we just have to look for a guy in RED SHIRT. Many guests were already waiting for the guide too, since nobody in RED shirt came, I managed to sneak a peek inside the Old Library Museum. Inside you will see a minature of entire Sydney and much more. Had to go to the restroom too.

Went outside after a few minutes. Still no guy in Red shirt, took some pics with the Bridge on background.

After a few minutes, the guy in Red Shirt came. We started the walking Tour.

Austraila: Exploring Sydney

Transiting to KL from Clark via Cebu Pacific, arrived almost midnight in LCCT. Just went outside for a late  Indian dinner.

Just waited inside the terminal for an early morning Air-Asia flight direct to Sydney.

It was about a 5-6 hours flight. Arrived in Sydney at about 10 in the morning (2 hours earlier than in PH).

 After clearing the immigration, I walked oustide asked  an airport police where the station for the coaches where. I was directed   about 200 meters and waited. I asked how much was the fare to the bakcpacker's hostel that I would be staying and I was told it was AUD 10. waited for a few minutes for additional passengers, 5 mores guests and we left.

I was dropped off just opposite to my hostel. Zing Backpackers in Kings Cross.

 After checking in , I went to my room. Unpacked my luggage. Went to the common room and looked for available tours. Saw a "FREE WALKING TOUR BROCHURE" at around 2 PM. Just freshened a liitle bit and there I was ready to go. Instead of planning to sleep , I was some sort of re-energized..hehehe.
