Sydney…is not the capital of Australia.

October 2, 2014

…just thought I’d throw that out there since everyone always thinks that. A little freebie for you. Can’t say my blog isn’t educational. 😉

Beautiful day out on the water

There is SO much to say. Australia is amazing. I really, really love it. They might have to push me kicking and screaming onto the plane when it’s time to leave, ha. 😉 Or I guess they could just set up a skype session with my nephew to remind me of all the things I am missing out on by being here. Either way.

After spending the first week in Sydney and Caberra, I flew up to Brisbane Monday night and got settled into my place here. I love it! The location is great, my space is huge, the family is nice, and the girls adore me. [I hope that lasts!]

There is SO much I want to see in Australia, and not enough time, so it will be interesting to see how this year plays out and how much time I end up spending working vs sightseeing. =) I still haven’t decided where I want to go after Brisbane. But there’s still time for that. =)

Here are a few pics from my time in Sydney.

 

Can you see the little people doing the bridge climb?

I was afraid this bird would accidentally bite my finger with that long beak!

    ah, so jealous right now. I’m going to work on fitting that cruise into my schedule for the next year. I just watched a film in class that was filmed in New Zealand… uh yes, I NEED to go there too! 🙂
    btw, one of my best friend’s in-laws live just outside Brisbane.
