First night in Canberra

Emma had a business meeting in Canberra on Monday and offered me a ride there. I hadn’t really thought about going to Canberra because literally everywhere I looked online said it wasn’t worth visiting. Or, if you did visit you could get everything done within 2 days. Emma insisted that it was a nice place…

Blue Mountains Aka”The Grand Canyon of Australia”

The Three Sisters Only a two hour journey from Sydney you can find the magnificent Blue Mountains. Emma and I woke up fairly early to make our way out there, but neither of us was feeling very well.

Road Trip and Australia’s Big things

Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary

The best day ever Having left Surfer’s Paradise only 30 minutes before, I saw a sign pointing to this wildlife sanctuary that I’d read about on TripAdvisor. I made a split second decision to ask Emma, my Aussie mate,  to take the exit off the highway to go check it out. She didn’t seem too…
