I used to think I found a large group of Americans in Sydney… that was until July 2nd. This year I actually partook in the July Fourth (on the 2nd) festivities put together by the Americans in Sydney group, and boy I found out there are hundreds of us Americans floating around this great city.… Read more
I’m thinking about trains again. Can you believe it has already been 3 months since I crossed Australia on the Indian Pacific train? While I wrote about my experience a lot over on WhyGo Australia, I didn’t quite get around to sharing my little stories here.
