      We’ve come along way…

      The airlines we will be flying on in Europe charge you $24 for each piece of checked luggage you will carry; we are on 3 of these happy flights before […]

      Cairns to Brisbane

      So we have finally (and sadly) made it back to Brisbane. We haven’t been in a huge major city since Melbourne and I can’t say that I missed it. The […]

      Great Barrier Reef

      For the most part Australia feels like the U.S. was some 20-40 years ago. Little towns have cute little downtown areas where you drive in and park on main street […]

      Uluru National Park

      We woke at 5:30 and, skipping breakfast, were fourth in line to get into the park in the morning. We paid our $25 each to enter, then drove through the […]
