Ladies and gentlemen, the time has come for us to bid farewell to this absolutely astounding country! We have done so many amazing things, and learned more than we ever thought possible... so although we're probably not coming back to Australia for a long time, we won't soon forget it!
I'm writing today from Melbourne, still. We stayed here for a little over a week, and it was good fun! The hostel is grand, though I am royally fed up with sleeping in a 12 bed dorm room. It only takes a couple bad room mates to destroy your perfectly normal sleeping patterns, and we seem to be constantly stuck with about 9 bad room mates. So yes. I may have been cranky this week. I cannot remember. I blame lack-of-sleep-induced-amnesia. (...I wonder if there actually is such a thing...)
I haven't done anything huge and adventurous this week, so I'll show you a few photos I've got from around the hostel. The first one is the mess in which I am currently living:
And then these next ones are of us on the roof... (the roof is where cool kids hang out, haha):
And finally a panoramic view of the city. Or it would be panoramic if I had a panoramic camera:
And yes! That's all I've got, really. Tomorrow at noon we're flying out of Melbourne and landing in Aukland, New Zealand. As is the norm when I go somewhere new, I haven't the foggiest idea what my internet situation will be. I can't imagine New Zealand will have any less internet that Australia, so I imagine you'll be hearing from me again within the next couple of days. Until then, have a good one!
