Port Douglas, Daintree, and diving the Great Barrier Reef!

Posted on September 10th, 2010 by BreAnn

After driving ALL DAY on the “wrong side of the road” up to Port Douglas, Australia, we pulled into our motel/condo for the night, which ended up being a TOTAL dump! It was called the “Mango Tree” in Port Douglas, NEVER STAY THERE!  Dirty place, musty smell, gross linens, crappy shower, and we even saw […]

Driving on the “wrong” side of the road!

Posted on September 7th, 2010 by BreAnn

A week before the beginning of our Australian trip, I was really surprised to find out that people drive on the LEFT side of the road in Australia!  How did I miss this fact??  Julie and I were both a bit nervous about this new finding and considered taking trains, buses, and planes for the […]

Cruising around the Whitsunday Islands

Posted on September 5th, 2010 by BreAnn

We woke up bright and early August 16th and took a quick flight from Sydney up to Hamilton Island, which is part of the fabulous Whitsunday Islands.  As we flew in, my excitement quickly grew as I saw the absolutely amazing aqua waters, white sand, and islands everywhere!  When we landed, we were SO relieved […]

Sydney – Oh so amazing!

Sorry!–I’m totally behind on posting (obviously), but FYI– I actually returned to the US last Sunday (August 22) and been trying to get back into the swing of things of everyday life after vacation. Meanwhile, I’m going to catch up with my blogs from Australia the next week or so, so… enjoy! 🙂 So, we arrived […]

Adelaide and Barossa Wine Tour

Posted on August 16th, 2010 by BreAnn

We arrived in Adelaide the night of Monday, August 9th, and my friend Janelle picked us up and took us back to her cute house which was just outside the city to the north.  I know Janelle from back in 2006 . . .  we met in Europe on this 20-day bus tour we were […]

The Great Ocean road to Adelaide

Posted on August 16th, 2010 by BreAnn

We were up SUPER EARLY on Saturday morning (August 7) to meet up with a tour bus that would be taking us on a 2 1/2 day drive from Melbourne along “The Great Ocean Road” to Adelaide.  The Great Ocean Road is a stretch of land and ocean just southwest of Melbourne, starting from a […]

We arrived in Melbourne at 5:30am on Thursday—EARLY! Took a couple buses to our hostel, and when we got there they were kind enough to offer us free breakfast and allowed us to use the public showers to clean up. Believe me, after a 15 hour flight, a shower is glorious! We bummed around town […]

Hello! Guess where I am? 😉 Yep—AUSTRALIA!! After a 15-hour flight across the Pacific Ocean, Julie and I landed safe and sound in Melbourne at 5:30am local time on Thursday, August 5th… yikes! We totally lost an entire day due to traveling 🙁 The East coast of Australia where we will be traveling through is […]

Looking on the positive side

Posted on July 24th, 2010 by BreAnn

First thing . . . and the […]
