Ich bin in Australien!

A travel blog entry by ikeaelch on Apr 06, 2013

While we waited we met a kid named Jackson who played cards with some of us. It was fun learning from him and teaching him games! Shortly after the pizza came our replacement bus showed up so we piled on and headed back to the hostel for our last night in Australia!
