Back from my Aussie Adventure

SONY DSCWhat an amazing trip I’ve had down under!

I truly loved every minute, from the wonderful people I met, to the fun places I went and the incredible food I ate. On my return, my suitcase was 10 pounds lighter from class supplies but my body is now 10 pounds heavier!

I feel so inspired by all the things I saw. I think I’m especially enamored with the plants and trees with unusual bark, gobs of bubbling sap, interestingly shaped flowers and seed pods.

I have well over 500 photos to go through. There are so many I want to show, I’ve been sorting them into categories so I can write blog posts about my time in the city of Melbourne, the convention, the architecture, street art, wine country, flora and fauna, etc. that it’s going to take a while for me to go through it all.

The photos below are flying in and out of Sydney, where I changed planes. The coast line was gorgeous. I’m hoping to get back to Australia and see a lot more of the country in the future.
