    Annnd We're Back!!

    As they say down under, Hallo Mates!! (BTW, no one says G’Day anymore. I think it’s because they know foreigners will just laugh at them if they say it).

Expensive, but awesome and memories that will definitely last a lifetime. I’ll get some photos posted in the next few days…
