Australia - Sydney 30.08.10
My first all expenses paid work trip! A 3 week working holiday to get trained up and meet the rest of the Lynas IT team.
I was lucky enough to be in Sydney the same time as my parents planned to be there for 6 days during the week of the Bledisloe cup game (which the All Blacks won by 1 point!). I took this as the perfect opportunity to fly Aurelie over for one of the weekends so she could meet the parents and a few of the cousins.
I spent most of my time working Monday-Friday while living in a nice one bedroom apartment on George St in the middle of the city and on the weekends catching up with mum and dad, friends and cousins (Anna, Lisa, Charlotte and Jessica).
On my first weekend in Sydney I was lucky enough to get to see Rehua knock a guy out in his first boxing fight! Had a big night after that with Roshan in Kings cross I tell ya.
Getting to see my parents again was awesome and I made the most of it by seeing them as much as possible for dinners etc.
The weekend Aurelie was there we had a super busy weekend catching up with my cousins, parents and seeing Sydneys sights including a day trip to Manly.
After living and working in Sydney for 3 weeks I now know why my half of my cousins are based there as it is truly a beautiful city with lots to do.
