If you don’t already follow me on Instagram, I went to Australia a few months ago but definitely procrastinated having to upload the pictures onto my computer. I’m finally getting around to writing about it now because… better late than never! (I’ll share pictures from my Belize trip one day… hahaha)
To be very honest with you, Australia was never really on my radar of “places to go”. In fact, I was originally supposed to go Buenos Aires/Argentina but when those plans fell through and the Australia opportunity presented itself (i.e. I needed to use up my vacation days before the end of May) I figured, “aaaah MIGHT AS WELL! Because if not now, then WHEN?” and booked my plane ticket to land of Koala bears (there’s also something very thrilling about booking a last minute trip to a far away place). PLOT TWIST: Australia far exceeded my expectations – what a STUNNING country!!!! If it’s not on your priority list of places to see in your lifetime, you need to add it. Flights to Oz will never be really “cheap” so you need to make peace with that now and trust me when I say it’s worth every penny.
We flew into Sydney and then backpacked up the coast to Noosa/Fraser Island, Airlie Beach, and Cairns. I’ll (hopefully) share those pictures too but for now here are some snaps of our little jaunt to the Blue Mountains.
While in Sydney, we met up with some friends from Alberta who were gallivanting through Australia as well, so we hopped in their adventure mobile, Sam, and drove up to Katoomba for the day.
The clouds cleared for a BRIEF minute and I quickly snapped a few pictures of the 3 sisters!
Despite missing the memo re: Zombie Apocalypse, this day was one of my favourite parts of the trip! Our heads were literally in the CLOUDS!
