Road trip roundup

Now that I’ve finished the really long brain dump of the roadtrip, I thought I would summarise it for those who can’t be arsed to read the whole thing.

Places we went

Best location: Coogee Beach
Location that I underestimated and was pleasantly surprised by: Port
Macquarie
Place I’d most like to return to: Newcastle because I didn’t
see enough of it
Place I’d like to never return to: Coffs Harbour – someone
proove me wrong please

Accommodation

Best place we laid our heads: The Golden Guitar Motor Inn
for it’s incredible shower and large room
Worst place we laid our heads: Australia Sunrise Hostel (the
only place we stayed two nights as well)

Most interesting location: Australia Sunrise Hostel in Newtown

Food

Best Dinner: Japanese Tepanyaki at Newcastle
Best Dessert: Krispy Kreme Donuts

I wasn’t able to finish
Worst Coffee: Every instant one we had in the mornings

Events

Best ride: The Sydney Ferry trip from Circular Quay to Darling
Harbour
Best visual feast: Watching storms over Sydney from the Gap
Biggest waste of money: Apart from the thai dinner it would
be buying a return ferry ticket and not using the second leg
