Jake and John arrived safely in Australia.

They’ve been there a week and in John’s words, have been going at it non-stop. They celebrated a Canadian girl’s birthday in Bondi Beach and met people from all over the world. They even had kangaroo for dinner one night.

The boys are now in Surfer’s Paradise along the Gold Coast, which not surprisingly has some of the best surfing beaches in the world. They found jobs almost immediately after arriving, waiting tables and bartending. The bars are open until 5 a.m.! Jake says it was easy to dive right into the job because of The Sandbar and that the drinks aren’t all that different from the States. 

Once they get settled into an apartment they plan to start their own blog to keep us entertained with their Australian adventures.  We’ll have a link to it once it’s ready.
