from back offices to beauty in meer hours.
so i guess i made a good enough impression on australia for them to not want me to leave today. but not to worry after seeing numerouse back offices of airlines and costoms i was allowed to leave the country but not without some sweet talkin and being the smooth guy i am. when i checked in this morning (thank god i got there 3 hours ahead) i could tell it wasnt going to be pleasent jsut fromt the check in girls look on her face. there was a problem with ticketing and to make things worse my visa had run out today as well. they needed proof of an onward ticket from new zealand which i dont have and didnt plan on having until this occured. so now i am flying out of aukland on the 20th of feb to l.a. before hitting home sweet home of costa rica for god knows how long. the past week in sydney was ok with with the highlight of course being new years eve. i spent my last few days wiht brock tom kelly and brit in a campsite and last night in a hostel near the airport. yesterday i had a great time wiht alyce's parents as they took me on a driving tour of the south coast and i convinced them to show me most of the pubs on the way down as well which made for a great day and good conversation. i ahve been so fortunate to meet people like this my entire trip and have seemes to be able to see things that most backapackers dont get to see because it is not on the "backpackers" route. i am currently in aukland , jsut another big city until i hit the road with my travelling mate alyce as we explore this country that is ment to be one of the most beautiful in the world. looks like everyone back at home is heading back to school from the holidays and man do i pitty you haha. guys keep your heads up in class and maybe you can learn enough one day to be smart enough to get off your lazy asses and do a trip like this lol. pics from new years and the south coast still to come once i can get to an internet cafe that will allow it.
