So once again Qantas confirmed themselves as a shit airline, jesus how difficult is it to get a fair paying passenger a veggie meal on a plane, in the end they had a spare meal, but thats not the point.

So last night i hung out on the terrace at the hostel chatting to some german guys and an italian guy who have been working in Oz and heading home soon, caught a wicked sunset over the city and saw massive bats fly over the city. I then went to the pool room and had the pizza and wine and i managed to scoff 6 slices of pizza which is more than i have eaten for a few and as for the wine i think at least ten mug fulls and i played drinking games and cards with other travelers who had had the pizza and wine, a good deal for 2 dollars. Then some of us headed to the world end bar and got a free drink and a laugh at some bad karokee ... read more

So i got to the airport in one peice after my last blog and the check in desks were closed and so i got chatting to this scottish woman who now lives in Oz and two other travelers James from england and John from Ireland.

The guys waited on me and i eventually ... read more
