Last weekend, as I talked about before, I went to the Big Day Out music festival... it is going to be really hard to explain this to everyone, bc it was nothing like I have ever seen before. Basically it was at like a fair-grounds type place and there were 6 different stages that all had different themes. Also, there were 30,000 people there... it was WILD.
My friend Jackie and I flew out on Thursday afternoon not knowing what to expect at all... except for maybe the best day of our lives haha. Anyways after a 2 hour plane ride (not bad) we were in Adelaide! We went to the hotel, which was actually pretty nice and then we changed and went to look for somewhere to eat/ go out. Before I forget though here is a picture of the room we were in... no lie, it was for ants. It was the smallest room I have ever seen.
Ok, so finally the day of the showsss! We caught a free bus to the showgrounds, got our "tokens" for drinks (they didn't want people using money so you bought tokens and gave them to the people working at the beer booths) and then we headed in.
So yeah Big Day Out was like nothing I have ever seen/done before. I am having SO MUCH FUN here I seriously can't explain how happy I am that I am doing this. I am starting to never want to come home... but I miss everyone, so it has to happen haha In about 30 mins my orientation/ program group is leaving to go to Byron Bay! There we are taking a surf lesson, taking a tour of an Indigenous tribe and going swimming in a lake that has "healing powers". It is going to be really cool and I will post after I get back!
