When did the joureyman tradition die? People travel so much now, at least the money rich middle class from Australia. I recently went to Amsterdam to meet a friend out on his first trip from the renovated, reimagined, sunscreen plastered old country. I got to the hostel he was staying at, after a night spent in a park on the other side of Holland, and talked with the other Aussies who filled the hostel. They were all following the party circuit - Amsterdam, Berlin, Croatia, Home. They were all on holiday, but they were away to escape jobs, not exchange cultures.
