Geraldton: Home Sweet Home

Right now I'm in the gym office (where the internet access is) while Ryan takes a photo and does some shooting for a while. Everything went well with the flights although it was very long. We have kankles from being in the air for so long! haha:) Yesterday we pretty much just drove around to see the town and check out the gym. The town is very cute. It looks a little run down, almost like a mexico feel but in a very clean way:) ...Ryan met all the players at their practice but didn't work out because we went to bed pretty much right away like around 9pm. We ended up getting the extra room so we have to share the bathroom with the other import which is kind of disappointing but I'm sure it will work out fine....We woke up at like 5am b/c we couldn't sleep any longer:) So we organized our room and put most of our clothing away. 

Our house is really big, but the rooms are kind of small. There is hardly anything in it either, but thats okay we have all the necessities:) There are tons of huge windows like a beach house so its very open. The backyard is huge and everything seems kind of tropical-ish almost...there are palm trees and it smells like the beach and its warm and humid when you walk out the door. It reminds me of a mix between what Costa Rica was like and San Diego.We can see a little sliver of the beach from our house and its probably a long 5 min or so walk to the beach.  I'm taking lots of pictures so you can see everything and I'll post them soon! 

This morning Scott (the General Manager) picked us up to get some things done. We were able to get our car:)......a brand new white camry!!!!haha!! We have also had the wonderful experience of driving on the wrong side of the road! Its quite entertaining:) everytime we change lanes or get ready to turn  the windshield wipers go on:)lol The blinker is on the other side and we tend to forget that:) 

After all that we were able to go to the bank and get a bank account and our cellphones all figured out. Ryan's # is 0448367271 and my # is 0448373232...in case you need them for emergency or a short call. Apparently its cheaper if you call us from a landline and I think we can call you but we have limited minutes. But we will figure that out for sure later!:)

After we got our car Ryan and I went to the grocery store to pick up some food and we went to get some meat and cheese at the deli for sandwiches but everything is in kilograms and liters and everything else I don't know what its means. haha but we finally figured it out! Its funny seeing people around here too because they are all really tan and sandy blonde hair. They all walk around barefoot and in their swim trunks; even in the grocery store:) 

Hope to continue to keep you all updated!!
