The first days in Sydney Australia

So after 2 nights in Bangkok it’s time for me to move on to Sydney Australia where i will partake in a Bartending course “EBS”.

The flight to Sydney from Bangkok took about 9 hours and transit time about 4 hours, but all went well. I was a little bit nerves about the custom in Sydney for i heard so many stories about what can happen. Like you forgot to throw away any kind of food, fruit that you brought or that there is problems with the visa pappers.
But luckely there was no problem when arriving, it all went very smoth :)

After clearing the custom and finding my bag i made my first purshase. A sim card from Vodaphone for one of the phones i brought with me, it was about 15$. I thought that was really cheap so i walked to seven eleven to by a pack of ciggarets, 25$ that really shocked me how expanisive it was compared to Sweden.

After buying the expansive ciggarets i am now ready to go to the hostel by train. Upon arriving at the hostel i realize that i’m about 2 hours early to check-in. But luckly i could leave my bag there while i went out for a long walk.

The start of my travel, and the days in Bangkok

It has now been little over 1 day, since i left Sweden for my second attempt to backpack/explore around Asia.

My first stop is Bangkok where i’ll be staying for little over 2 days, before traveling to Australia. All my friends who had been in Bangkok before says that, when you are there you should book a couple of nights in a more luxurious hotel. For one reason only, “take the chance, who knows when the next time is”.

The hotel i booked for my 2 night accommodation is Centara Grand at Centralworld
