Before getting on a plane to Darwin I got to spend the 22nd shopping and getting ready to get back home. The rough part was that I had to check out before 10:00 but wasn't leaving until 1:00 am so in the evening I was pretty much loitering around the hostel and it was not really a great place as there was no lounge or anything comfortable, just an outside patio.
Anyways I survived what felt like a really long day. I made sure that all my flights were confirmed and eventually got on a shuttle to the airport. The security was heightened at this time due to some sort of fluid/bomb scare so I couldn't buy any duty free booze for the people at home. The flight to Sydney was about 4 hours and uneventful.
