Waking up on this morning was no easy task...I had a few bruises from surfing and my arms and shoulder were killing me! but had to get up early for a travel talk where we were given some great trips about the best places to go to and see while in Oz and I will be using them to my advantage when I start travelling around the coast.

It was then time to do the walk from Bondi to Coogee beach with a stopover at Clovelly Beach. It was quite a windy day to say the least and after surfing, the waves didn't look to appealing to me however the cliffs and the sea views along the walk are beautiful and while I am in Sydney I will look to do the whole coastal walk which is 10km. I've had a lot of practice walking in the past 3 weeks so shouldn't be phased by the 10km when I embark the journey. 

Bondi was quite quiet on this day a) because it was the middle of the week b) the weather wasn't the greatest. I have to say I wasn't sure what the fuss is about Bondi as its quite a plain beach with a small pavilion behind it. Bondi Junction where there is a high street is about a 20 min walk behind it. It was a nice beach though in regards to the colour and feel of the sand and am sure when I go back there when its summer here...I will change my mind frame on the beach.

With the stopover (or rather our last destination in the day) in Clovelly beach there we had an Aussie BBQ ready to be eaten which was really nice to have after working the appetite with the walk.

After lunch it was time to play volleyball. Being into sports as much as I am, I of course was game to have a go at the game. The rules aren't too bad but serving the ball isn't that great as it leaves big red marks on your arm. We played about 8 games in total, in which I won a few times and lost a few times, until the evening caught up with us and hen retired back to the hostel  

Having been shattered by the surfing, walking and volleyballing...I fell asleep while a few others watched a movie in my room as we had an even earlier one the next day.
