The final leg of the journey (or so I thought; I always seem to have these bonus adventures when I’m abroad, don’t I?) took me to Queensland in northeastern Australia. We did a lot of iconic things, and I’ll give you the rundown here.
Welcome back for another installment of the Great Australia Travelogue of 2014! For the next leg of our journey, we packed up our friends’ SUV and headed onto the open road, south through WA and toward the coast and countryside.
The second leg of our journey took us to Perth in Western Australia, to meet up with old friends and see a different part of the country. Our first morning we got up and went for a walk along the beach, and a series of inlets and small lakes with lots of local birds.
So I’m finally getting around to getting some of my photos from our trip to Australia up and realizing I have a lot of them…. Over 3,000 actually, but as it was a three week trip, I guess that’s not too bad really. At any rate, I’m going to begin with our first stop on the journey: a three night excursion in Sydney.
So, Australia was absolutely fantastic! I had a lot of first-in-my-life experiences (including diving for the first–and second–time), visiting two world heritage sites, and meeting a long time friend for the first time face to face, plus other fun things like a Geek Girl Pen Pals Club tea party and all the local wildlife and…. Well, it’s going to take several posts, and I’ll get on top of things eventually, but you’ll have to be patient with me. It’s coming. And if you’d like to do what we did and see what we saw, I’ll make a list of the places photographed!
A quick summary in the meantime: I both started and ended the trip in Sydney, first with J and then with my folks, so there are quite a few photos of the ever-photogenic Opera House.
I’ve been in Australia for the last two weeks but haven’t had much chance to really post anything simply because we’ve been so busy. Here are a few photos for now, with more to follow including a dailyish log when I have time to wort through all the photos. ^_^
In the meantime, why not check out my review of Muppets Most Wanted? Captain America will follow shortly, too.
