The next phase...

Where we're going from here!

overcast 25 °C

Hello!!!! It's me again! I've got another bit of an update for you! Right now we're in Melbourne. We arrived a few days ago, and we're staying here until January 31. On the 31st, we're flying out to Aukland, New Zealand! Cool! We like Melbourne, it's a very intereting city. It's got things we've never seen before, like Trams. The C-Train system is pretty much all trams! They drive on the street like the cars! It's practically blowing our minds, hahaha.

I know I've probably been dropping hints about the impeding doom of my bank account, and therefore I have news that may interest you! Cailan and I have had a very good chat about our options, and we've decided to come home earlier than we had initially planned to. Our plane arrives in Calgary on February 13. We're actually very, very happy to be coming home. As interesting as another whole month in New Zealand would have been, it's not a very logical descision. We're still going to spend long enough there to see most of the things we want to, and then we'll be heading back to Home Sweet Home!

Please don't think that we're cutting ourselves short or anything. We want very much to be home in February instead of March. Backpacking is an adventure and a half, and we've loved every second of it, but it's time. We are ready to get back to the normality of life in Calgary. It will be very pleasant to not have to pay people for absolutely everything. Did you know an average load of laundry knocks us back $6-$8? And having a private bedroom is going to be heaven. Right now we're in a dorm shared by 12 people. It can get kind of crazy sometimes!!!

And yes! That's all the news I have for now. I've just mailed another disc of photos home, so I don't have any new ones to post on here at the moment. If you haven't already, remember that Cailan has a blog too, and she posts loads of her own photos as well. Check it out!! http://cailan.proboards100.com

Talk to you soon!
