So the trip has been a treat for sure.

Left Sydney and moved on to Newcastle where I (Alyssia) did the sprint of my life after a bus because Alison thought she left her passport on it. Turns out it she didnt and I just had a minor heart attack for nothing. Went out for a ngiht on the town and met some wicked Aussie's or so we thought and had a great adventure planned for the next day till they totally ditched. Hostel was pretty boring there to say the least. Alot of movie watching was had by the other residents. We had a pretty good time all around. Im really loving Aussie licorice thats for sure.

Next stop was Byron Bay...well after the bus ride from hell. Thats what we would descibe it just from knowing it was 11 hours! It was so hot on that bus we were all nearly sick and then to top it off the bus driver didnt close the side hatch properly and a couple of the guys bags fell out ont he highway. by the time we  did a single lane highway three point turn and nearly got suck in the ditch and turned around to go pick them up (20 min later) they had already been looted by the hobos...poor guys. got to byron no worse for wear though. this is where we discovered GOON! awful stuff if you ask me but its 10 bucks for a box of wine...yes a box. headed out to cheeky monkey and danced the night away. the next day we frequented the cheeky monkey again. had a wonderful five dollar meal and played some of the a heck of alot of free beer too. very cool. this hostel pretty mcuh rocked. very cool residents around this place.

got a wicked surf lesson from our buddy thomas! we are all pros now according to him. i say its a pathetic attempt at flattery but ill take it. today was a little more chill...sun came out for a bit finally and we relaxed on the beach. danika put a needle thru her nose for a wicked cool piercing and to the next adventure...

ally squared!
