Today is our first day of our holidays. Yesterday after we had finished university, Jasmin and I went to the airport of Denpasar for our 2 weeks trip to Australia. When we arrived there and went to one of the counter to check-in, the men told us, that we had to apply for a visa for Austrlia. We actually thought, we don’t need one, if we are going to Australia for less then three months. But it wasn’t like that. So he told us, he can just give us our boarding cards to Kuala Lumpur, but not to Sydney. He also said, we could try to apply for it now, because it’s possible doing it online. If we are lucky, our visa will be ready in Kuala Lumpur and we will get our flight tickets to Sydney there. Otherwise we could not fly to Australia and have to stay there waiting for our visa. Luckily, i had my notebook with me, so we applied for the visa. But unfortunately, their were two different types of tourist visa, one is for three and the other one is for 130 Aus Dollars. Cause we were in a hurry and were afraid of not getting to Australia, i applied for the one, which you had to pay for.
When we arrives in Kuala Lumpur, i were already looking for some cheap hostels in Kuala Lumpur, because we thought, our visas will never be ready on a friday night or on tthe weekend. Luckily, we were wrong. The woman from Air Asia told us, we could fly to Sydney. We were so happy and relieved. When we arrived in our hostel in Sydney, we went to kings Kross, where i used to live, when i have been in Australia doing work and travel. And i realized, how much has changed. So many shops and bars and restaurants had gone. Also the hostel where i lived, was closed. Somehow this was a strange feeling and in a way very sad. After that, we went to the opera house and the harbour bridge making some pictures and went of course to all the other tourist attractions. We realized, how expensive Australia is in comparison to Bali.
After this long day, we flopped tired into bed.
