Photo Post – Taronga Zoo & A Bit of Sydney

Out of all the cool stuff Syndey has to offer, Taronga Zoo was one of my personal highlights. In part because  it provides a ton of great photo opportunities, so there's plenty to see in this post! https://www.flickr.com/photos/dirtybanana/36283000064/in/dateposted-public/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/dirtybanana/36948348142/in/dateposted-public/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/dirtybanana/36948347292/in/dateposted-public/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/dirtybanana/36948346192/in/dateposted-public/ This chimp was feeling the "permanent vacation" lifestyle. https://www.flickr.com/photos/dirtybanana/36948345182/in/dateposted-public/ Chilling with some views. https://www.flickr.com/photos/dirtybanana/36948344192/in/dateposted-public/

Photo Post – Uluru Sunrise

This post is out of sequence since I've already posted the Great Ocean Road pictures, but I had such a hard time picking the best pictures - I simply had too many. The Uluru sunrise was magical, and it was 100% worth getting up super early for. I spent a good 90 minutes enjoying the …

Photo Post – The Great Ocean Road and South Australia

Despite some initial bumps in the road, our roadtrip from Adelaide to Melbourne was wonderful and offered a ton of amazing sights and landscapes.

Photo Post – Oz’s Wonderful Wildlife

Australia has some crazy and amazing wildlife, and although we (luckily?) didn't encounter any of the more dangerous examples in the wild, we got to see a lot of cool animals out and about. And, of course, we also got to see some of the more dangerous ones from behind the safety of their enclosures. …

Photo Post – Lava Landscapes

Hawaii's volcanoes - active, dormant and extinct - offer amazing landscapes and scenery, and a lot of it. Almost anything on Hawaii is touched by lava at some point and it makes for some amazingly beautiful landscapes. Here are my best shots from our two weeks on Hawai'i. From the slopes of the volcanoes... https://www.flickr.com/photos/dirtybanana/35750221304/in/dateposted-public/

A city girl survives the desert

After a few days in the tropical rainforests of Australia, it was time for a visit to the Outback. I'll admit I was not excited about this part...at all. I'm a city girl through and through, so the idea of being in the literal middle of nowhere for 4 days was pretty unappealing--not to mention …
