Today we are going to go on a " mystery tour" the owner of the hostel is taking us, I am curious what we will do. Well write to you soon again. Big hug to all of you,
Well, we have gone on the mystery tour and it turned out to be great fun. We first drove to a lookout point which was amazing because we could see about 70 kilometres far. Took some beautiful pictures. Just as we thought it was over the tour went on. We drove over a real dirt road with loads of stones in our station wagon (no 4wheel drive!!) and were just glad we made it, when we noticed the next surprise: kangaroos!!!
They were just there, loads of them and without thinking I just went to them and tried to pat them, the first few ran away but then I tried again with a little bit of grass in my hand, and I managed to actually touch th e kangaroo and pat it!! That was soooo amazing!!!
Daniel took some pictures of that and I will put them on the internet as soon as I have the possibilty. But that was definitely the experience of the day!
Than we went back to the hostel and were already thinking about what to eat. We asked Tony (the hostel owner) what would be a good place and he said that if we would wait 2 minutes he would drive us! So of course we waited, and he took us to a great chinese restaurant (that was such a luxury after days of BBQ!) And it was great fun. Tony told us about him and it turned out that he had actually fulfiled his dream in Australia. He was living a busy life with expensive car, goodlooking girlfiriend and everything, but little time. When he went to Port Macquarie on a holiday he fell in love with the town and bought the house there which is now the hostel. It was a really cosy evening.
