Leaving Australia

I'm sitting down a dingy corridor at the sydney airport..... it's the only place I could find with a power point to charge the laptop.

I've made all the relevant phone calls, now I'm just waiting a while before I have to clear customs and head off on the plane.

So far I've been pretty lucky, a lot of people on the http://www.couchsurfing.com site have helped me out with suggestions, both saying good and bad things about the trip through central america.

I've got a guy coming to the airport to pick me up in San Francisco, how cool is that?!?

I had some problems getting on in Brisbane. Apparently you can only check 2 bags in on flights to america, so I had to choose between the boards, guitar or the back pack, or pay an extra $120.

Anyone care to guess what I left behind? Or if I paid the money?

Well it ended up being neither. It turns out that I could take the guitar and my day bag on as hand luggage.... hooray for saving $120.00

Anyway, it's time to board the plan, I wonder if I'll get the seat to myself?
