In about 5 weeks I’m off to Australia for a 7 week vacation! I’ll be spending 4 weeks in Perth, WA and 3 weeks in Melbourne, VIC. I’m so happy & grateful to be spending it with my loved ones there! I went there 2 summers ago and can’t wait to spend more time there. Granted I’m going during their winter season, but I still quite enjoy what the country has to offer.
It really is a BIG country. I always find this image funny because when I would explain Australia to a (geographically challenged) friend. She was so confused that it was as big as it was in land mass. We even sat down and used a map scale to measure the width of the country and we found it was a thousand miles or so smaller than the U.S.
You always hear the most random and bizarre things about Australia. I love when my friend tells me of all the random things she does/gets into while in Melbourne. I’ve visited other places before and every one of them I felt like a tourist (as I probably should). However, when I spent a month in Australia (OZ) last time, I felt different.
It’s a long trip, but so worth the 30+ hours travel time (for me). You should seriously consider visiting one day!
