My flight home to Vancouver was last Friday September the 19th, so I guess I'm now officially stranded in Australia. No money and no way home. I guess I'll just have to surf my way to the top turn pro and join the WCT [Check it out].
But seriously I bought the ticket knowing the return trip would never be used. The peace of mind it gave me for Australian Customs (you're required to have proof of onward travel or proof of funds for onward travel on top of the minimum funds you are supposed to bring with you into the country) was well worth paying $300 more for the round trip flight.
