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.
