We set off for a day of seeing the sights of Dorset and first off we caught up with some of the Lifeguards that work at the many beaches along the south coast of England. It was really cool to chat with them about the busy summer they've been having so far and also find out some interesting stuff about some of the differences between ours and their services.
After smashing some delicious fish and chips on the beach at a very busy Bournemouth beach, Maxi got the courage up to brave the chill of the English sea.
After being in the land of the ice cold frothy pint for at least we 8hrs we realised we were way overdue for "A PINT OF THE FINEST" *In my best English slang*. So that's exactly what we did ! Upstairs on the Balcony at the Aruba at Bournemouth we kicked back in the sun with a very nice pint of cold Becks and soaked up the warm rays !
Feeling like we hadn't exerted ourselves enough in the last 48hrs we decided to take up an offer from Ross and the crew at Jetski Safaris for a spin in the English channel on there super fast and super fun Sea-Doo Jet ski's ! We had such a fun time and what a great way to see the coast line. If time is good to us on in the last 2 weeks we're back in the UK then I'm definitely gonna take Hoppo, Corey & Gonzo down there again !
Everyone knows you get really hungry after spending time on the water so our next step was to fill the belly. We were joined for the evening by Aussie export and very good friend of mine "Cowboy". He is currently working in London as a sparky (electrician). Him and Lucy told us the best medicine for a couple of jet lagged Aussies was a cool little place named "Pizza Express" so back to Bournemouth we went ! The food was delicious and the staff were super friendly !
Realising the night was not quite over yet we popped down to the Aruba bar (again) for some unfinished business but after a couple of shots and a little mathematics i came to the conclusion I'd been awake for well over 36hrs and was a broken man. It was time I went home to snore my ugly head off !
It was a VERY FUNNY and FANTASTIC first day in the "Sunny & Warm" South of the UK and I'd like to take a quick second to thank the wonderful Lucy. She drove us everywhere and ensured we learnt so much about this majestic place ! Cheers Luce, your a star :)
It's now 3am and I'm wide awake, finishing off this post. We are off to Spain in less than 8hrs. As much as I don't wanna get on another aeroplane for a while, I cant wait ! I've heard so many beautiful things about Spain and I'm looking forward to taking it all in with Maxi.
Thanks again for coming along for our little adventures. Its only beginning !!!
