MIGRATION SEASON - but im a convict.



Hi, my names Katrina and I live in Australia. Australia is a beautiful country, and is the only continent which is also an island. WOW. 
we have kangaroos, beaches, koalas, and gum trees. 
We gave birth to INXS, Men at Work, Silverchair, Savage Garden, and many others such as Elle McPherson, Natalie Imbrugulia, Kylie Minogue....all of who probablly spend more time in London or New York than down under...
why is this you ask?
Well, its all very historical but Australia is infact a giant jail. Nay, the illusion is that its the land of the free, a wannabee america...but this is a lie...because if you would like to leave Australia and head to the northern hemmisphere (to join our civilised friends)- it costs atleast $2000, and thats just for coach/cattle/back pains...pain in the ass...
now, winter is approaching and this means...the annual migration to european summer for my friends....partying in mykonos, day trips to spain, shopping in london...I know this sounds spoilt and mighty aphrodite jappy but its a holiday and escape my aussie friends look forward too. well...my friend lara and I went on a walk this afternoon and looked out onto the ocean...we realised we were convicts and that we are trapped on the island of Australia for atleast another 4 months due to work commitments...we are upset about this. very upset. The thing about living in Sydney Austrlaia is that we are in the best city of Australia so theres really no where else to go...like, going to melborune would be ok...but its just a city...where are the beaches to fly to....the different cultures to explore? In europe one can venture on a train journey to another country, in America one can go to miami, san fran, l.a. , vegas, aspen...but in AUstralia...one cannot...theres no carribean and there aint no silver lining.
