Aussie Express

Have you ever noticed how Australian backpackers are everywhere? And it seems everyone knows someone from college who spent some time in Australia at one time or another? About half a million young budget travelers flock to Australia from the northern hemisphere every year. Well, there's a company that's planning on monetizing (heard that word since 2000?) this phenomenon, backpackersXpress. Cheap flights to and from Australia to facilitate hard partying and to help fuel the Girls Gone Wild [insert locale] craze.
