The Show

The constant chattering. The fireworks. The showbags. The rides. These are just some of the things I love about the Royal Show.

Somethimes, I think the only reason I still do Guides is because I get free entry to the show.

Let me tell you, gettting up at 7.30 am on the school holidays to jump on a crowded train on a weekday is not fun. Especially when it's Peak Hour.

Have I ever mentioned how much I love showbags? Well, now I am. I LOVE  showbags. Last year, I kept checking the website every couple of days until September to see if the showbags had been posted yet. I even check The Sydney easter Show website and The Royal Melbourne Show websites so I can get a bit of an idea what will be in them.

This year, not so much excitement. Maybe it's because when I went on the site in February, or something like that, and it said "Showbags put up in September". So I stopped looking.

Anyway, back to the point. I got up at that un-godly hour of the morning, got ready and jumped on a train. It was crowded. Normally, all the Guides somehow get a seat. We transferred trains, to a different line, and that was even more crowded. Maybe because it was the Show Express Line.

We got there, skipped the ong line, and went showbag looking.

Skipping a lot, the showbag I wanted (Girlfriend) was all out, and so were all of my "back-up bags". So I didn't get a showbag this year :O!

Then we went to a stand where we had to stamp "passports" and and give out freebies. Pretty boring.

Then Mum and Dad picked me up and we went to where all of the rides were, where we went of this really cool ride where you sit on this incredibly uncomfortable cane and metal seat, and then you get spun around really fast. I go on this ride every year, and it's definitely my favourite.

Next I went on a ride called the Gee-Wizz where you sit in these cup things, and then go around the circle track really fast. I like how you have to hold your neck tight and still :P

The last ride I went on was the Super nova. This was the biggest, fastest ride of all (well that I was game enough to go on). You sit in a seat and then you get swung like a pendulum. It made me feel really sick. If it had stopped a couple of swngs earlier, it would have been okay though.

I took some pretty awesome photos with my phone, but I don't know how to put them on the computer  *grins sheepish grin*.

Last, we went to went to the fireworks display. The fireworks were AH-MA-ZING!

P.S. This time in 5 days, I'll be in Syndey!! EEEEEEEEE!

Just three days now, excited?! I love showbags a whole lot too. I always spend my money on showbags instead of rides because to me they're a lot more fun :P

Yes I am excited, thanks :) and don't forget that showbags last longer than a quick two to three minute ride!
