Entertaining Advice

Here is a sampling of some of the tips I have received prior to my departure:

"bring me a [koala, duck-billed platypus, kangaroo, etc]
"take a video of the first time you flush the toilet"
"there is a lot of interesting biodiversity"
"don't get eaten by aborigines"
"don't they have a poisonous variety of everything?"
"if you get stung by a jellyfish, let someone pee on it"

(that last one is actually true)

New Blog

So this is going to be my travel blog. I leave for Australia 6 days from now (!!!!!) and until then it is just preparation (ie packing, etc). I'll see you in about a week when my adventure begins!
