Still struggling to get all of our information together to apply for our visas. We've got our bits together, now we're just waiting on Jason's company to provide documents. We're hoping to send off it all on Wednesday, so it should hopefully be approved (or not) in a couple of weeks. I can't wait to finally get it done, we've been so stressed about it, it's not easy at all. We tried to forget about it over the weekend and enjoy Easter. Friday night we went out with Martin and Linn for his birthday. We went to a bar with a great view of Bondi for a few drinks, then we came back to Coogee for dinner. It wasn't a late night tho as it was Good Friday, all the bars shut at 10pm, which was probably a good job! I managed to get hold of my brother on the phone when we got in as it was his Birthday too, it was nice to be able to wish him a Happy Birthday!!
Saturday, Jason and I got up early and went for a drive, I'd read about a new road 'Grand Pacific Drive', opened late last year that hugs the coastline from the National Park to Wollongong, which is south of Sydney. After you've driven through the park, you come to the Sea Cliff Bridge, which is just under 2km long, it's really cool, it follows the curve of the coastline below the feel like you're driving on top of the ocean. We stopped off at one of the villages too, there are some really stunning houses along the coast.
On the way to Wollongong, we stopped at one of the many beaches and had our lunch, then headed on. We didn't do much in Wollongong, just looked in the city centre, and then went to the viewpoints on the seaside. It was a bit windy and chilly, so we didn't stay that long. It was a great drive though, very scenic, really worth doing.
When we got back, we went to the cinema to see Ice Age 2, which was really great, then we had a quiet night in and watched a DVD. Yesterday, Jason and I went to Sue and Grants for dinner. It was really nice to see them again, as it had been a while. It was good to catch up on all the gossip!!
