Home Is Where The Wi-fi Is

8 Jul 2013

 

After many months of greatness I am back where I started. The land of the free, the home of the brave, good old USA. The Tim-Tams have been switched with Twinkies and I can finally use as much data as I want to on my cell phone. Although I did miss home very much, my time in Australia will be missed dearly. I can’t stop talking about it and I know for a fact that I am annoying everyone around me. It’s just going to have to be that way for a while. Somehow everything that I do relates to something that happened in Sydney. I hope that some day in the future I get a chance to visit again. For now, the memories will do.
