|We've arrived safely in Darwin this morning after a bloody long flight. Everything went pretty smoothly except that all the airport checks are pretty strict
I even had to take off my shoes because they wanted to x-ray them (biological weapons?) :-)
We arrived at 0415 so we didn't get into bed until 0530. Fortunately there was a problem at the back packers hostel with the reservation of our room,
so we got the biggest room they have. It's called Buckingham Palace. It has one bedroom, one bed-room annex living room, separate kitchen, private toilet and shower. It's BIG! :-)
We got a few hours sleep until about 1100, then went for breakfast/lunch and got some supplies from the supermarket. We didn't have a really active afternoon (just sat in the park, reading a little). We got a little more active in the evening and went to the beach to view the sunset and get something to eat.
|On monday we decided to rent two bikes and explore Darwin. After about an hour Oskar got a flat tire so we had to walk back. Since I was wearing some lighter shoes without socks (who needs heavy mountain boots when its 35 degrees and you go cycling right?) I had a very big blister after less that half an hour of walking, so the last piece of the trip back was quite uncomfortable. But since it's on my heel I don't feel it at all when I'm walking on my heavy boots. So from now on the light ones are emergeny-can-get-wet only.|
