Byron Bay was spectacular, but the KIA was itching to get on down the road, so we packed it up and drove the 10 hours to Sydney. As per usual, Josh and I split the drive into quarters. I've become quite accustomed to Josh's hugging the left side of the road, but since he has done the majority of our driving in Australia, he was convinced that I was …
Sydney, well Manly. The problem is I wore myself out chasing dolphins and don't feel too good... Everything hurts, glands up, probably all the salt water I swallowed. Not sure I'm going to be able to do this place justice, but there's always next time!
