So to keep with the couch surfing theme, I've changed my couch status from "travelling" to "available" and since then have had around 4 or 5 couch requests per day! Crazy stuff!
At the moment I have a couple of "schatzi's" staying with me from Munich who are currently 10 months into their year long road trip around Australia. They're great house mates and they've definitely seen more of Australia than I have! They've introduced me to some amazing German delicacies like Potato soup and Leberkaes, and in turn I've taken it upon myself to give them some real Australian treats like Lamingtons and Pavlova!
All in all, it's nice to be home (if only for a few weeks) and plus, my Italian working holiday visa was approved today... HOORAHHHHH! Life is good!
