a time to say good-bye

melbourne, australia

overcast 10 °C

after saying good-bye to dad in kuala lumpur in malaysia and ending our amazing 2 week holiday and my trip to asia, i jumped back on the plane to melbourne. when i arrived here it was freezing! weird to experiance winter time after 4 months of the blazing sun! i stayed at a couples house from the couch surfing organization in richmond area.

the next day we headed to grantsville to visit maru park. this park is a small animal reserve full of wallabies, kangaroo, tasmanian devils, koala bears, emu's and other animals. you can walk through the kangaroos which bound towards you with their joeys hanging out of the belly pouches looking for food. they eat right out of your hands, an intimidating experiance that turned into something quite unreal. because the zoo was so small the visiters are able to get a more personal hands on experiance with the animals.

the next day i tracked down alison and we had coffee and walked around for the better part of the afternoon before she had to go to work, i returned back to my temporary home to pack my things and reflect upon the last amazing 4 months ive spent exploring asia, meeting amazing new friends, as well as trying new foods and experiances. its been a hell'ova ride!
