Australia Part Two

Hi Everyone.  As always, thank you so much for your comments on yesterday’s post.  I’m doing better today as I had some time to think while I birded for 8 hrs today but not as good as I could have been if i’d read your comments before I left!  
Alas, I’m feeling kinda sickly (I blame the early morning wake up and the freezing 30F temps this morning!  Bring me back my heat!!!) so I’m going to post the last of my “trip” posts for you all that I’ve been preparing.  
Hope you all had a great Christmas weekend and if you have to work tomorrow, I bet it’s not that long of a week and that you have New Year’s off!  Look forward to that!  
Oh yeah, and I’m going to try my hardest to post tomorrow night but I’m not sure.  We’re having another Christmas celebration with my mom’s side of the family at our house so it’s going to be madness tomorrow.  wish me luck, i’m a little anxious about it…but keeping all your thoughts/comments right in the palm of my hand. :D

As you can tell, I loved my first trip to Australia and all the different places I went to.  I traveled that time with a friend from the program I had studied at, but this time, I went by myself.  Funny thing was, I bought the ticket and then told my parents, so there was nothing they could do about it! LOL!  it was the greatest trip every though.  I spent a month starting at Cairns, then down to Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra, over to Melbourne then further over to the 13 Apostles (but not as far as Adelaide).  

I plan on going back a third, fourth, fifth and more times to go back and have more adventures.  I really love the country, the people and everything they do and have there.  Seriously, I think one day I just might have to live there! haha!
Anyhow…here’s more visits!
Frasier Island, Brisbane:
Surfer’s Paradise, Brisbane:
Blue Mountains, Sydney:
Beaches, Sydney:
Bus trip from Sydney to Melbourne: 
Tablelands, Northeast Queensland: 
Great Ocean Road Tour (travel from Melbourne, loop out and then back to Melbourne):

Can’t wait until next time! :D
