02/03/15 I bumped into Isabel in the toilets this morning, so I have hung around with her and her friends all day! Everyone is so nice, and we went for dumplings for our lunch!
04/03/15 It’s the first day of the F1 set up today – there was a lot of lifting, unloading, construction and I know I will aching in the morning haha! But it was so much fun and I met some more new people!
I cannot wait for the F1 to actually start!
05/03/15 I am currently in Starbucks catching up with some blog posts, just phoned Barb for the first time and am hoping to go to H&M to get some basics for farming.
I had lunch cooked for me today by my two new asian friends, which was really nice of them.
I check out tomorrow to go to Urban Central and I just booked my day tour to Great Ocean Road!
06/03/15 I went back to Starbucks today so I could catch up on blog posts and everything – not much happened! Just getting ready for tomorrow!
07/03/15 I went on my trip to the Great Ocean Road today – it was amazing, I loved it! I saw some wild koala bears, went into a rainforest, visited several gorgeous beaches and then saw the twelve apostles!
08/03/15 I started back at work again today, setting up more stands for the F1 Grand Prix. Although, I drove on the race course today!
09/03/15 I went to work again today, same thing really. Just had an induction as well for a little bit, got to know which marquee I was working on and that was about it! My logs will probably be really boring until Thursday, so I won’t write much here.
I also saw loads of amazing hot air balloons everywhere this morning, so pretty!
10/03/15 I drove on the circuit again today, in the work van! It was such an experience whilst all of the signs and fences were up – I took a video which I will try to post onto my blog, too! I will do a mini YouTube video as well, although I haven’t filmed much yet!
We also got to see people pulling out all of the bollards on the track for the race, which must’ve taken hours and hours to do! We also saw them repainting the sponsors signs all around the track, although they looked perfect from last year – it’s still not good enough! 😀
11/03/15 I saw some of the safety cars driving around the track today as they closed it for practises, so good! I also heard a lot of the drivers testing last night – exciting!
12/03/15 The Formula One is finally starting! Today is Corporate Day mainly, and some of the general public can come in too. It’s pretty quiet so far, but it will be a lot busier over the next three days! We have already sold out of so much stock already, on the first day – crazy!
I heard a lot of the cars practising today and managed to run up onto the grandstand at 7am to take a video whilst one came past – it was so fast though that I couldn’t even see who it was driving!
13/03/15 It’s the first main day of the Grand Prix! I got to wonder around Albert Park on my breaks, so I went to see the Opening Ceremony cars that the drivers arrive in – too cool!
14/03/15 Today is Qualifying Day! I sat by the screens on my break to watch it, sadly McLaren did not do very well but it was still so exciting to watch! The atmosphere was crazy!
15/03/15 Today is the last day of the Formula One Grand Prix – so sad! Everything has been so exciting, and although it’s the main race today, it will all be over straight afterwards.
After the race finished, I heard a load of hysterical screaming and shouting coming from the grandstand, so I ran up to have a look and people were waiting for the drivers to come out.
I got to see Rosberg, which was amazing! Sad to be finishing my work here!
16/03/15 My first day off in ages, today I am getting myself organised for tomorrow as I fly back to Sydney to go farming. I have packed my backpack whilst drinking a celebratory ‘Well Done Zoe, You worked hard’ cider and a Kinder Bunny. I also went to the post office to send a box to my parents with a few bits of merchandise from the Formula One for them, as they’re very jealous that I was working there!
Did you guys watch the Grand Prix? Or visited the Great Ocean Road? It was definitely one of my favourite places so far, with Byron Bay!
