Sure the Welly to Sydney will be about the shortest on our way home but who is counting at this point? Dallas is. 86 hours of flying time on 12 flights not including lay over. 30 plus hours of driving time. 9 hotels. 6 lectures : 3 at universities 3 at tafe colleges. 2 days off. Not a single kangaroo or kiwi seen the whole trip?! The best thing: countless new friends! Boarding for Los Angeles now... Will check in stateside!
