Hey ya'll from Sydney!

Yes, from Sydney. We met two Sydney siders Alex Brazil & Alex Colombia at the reception of the hostel we were staying in Melbourne and had drinks with them at the Crown Casino and as we were driving back to the hostel Alex B invited us to come with them to Sydney and stay with him there. We thought about it for about 10 seconds and said "Sure, why not!". So the next morning we started at 8am to Sydney again and how we havent regretted it at all! We have had a blast here! Alex B lives in Coogee, just blocks away from the beach, not that there's been any beach weather, but still its nice :D

Also I met an old friend of mine from Turku, Pete, and his girlfriend and had a couple of good days with them too. It's been fun here and now we r off to the Gold Coast to see our friends there!

The Australian Open has been a blast to watch, since you can watch it during the daytime here instead of the night, but then again, the 5 set matches stretch well into the morning like Hewitt-Baghdatis match which didnt end 'till 4.30am or something... 😊 Also, our main man Jarkko played very well but then lost to Nadal in straight sets. Oh well, it was pretty good to be a Finn in Oz when the games were going on 😊

Next blog will probably be from New Zealand since we only have about 5days in the Gold Coast, than we fly on 30th to Melbourne and the following day to NZ. Sweet as!!!

Catch ya later, Jani & Carolina
