Return from OZ

Since virtually the beginning of our relationship, Anthony and I have always dreamed of a trip to Australia. After years of planning and saving, that dream came true! We returned home from our two-week trip on Friday, and while we spent the weekend unpacking, unwinding and recuperating from the jet lag, I can’t wait to get all of the details down while it’s still fresh in my memory. During our last long, international trip to Europe, I was much better at keeping a journal of all of our adventures and encounters, detailing our thoughts and feelings along the way. As we were packing for Australia, we came across that old journal and it was such fun to relive those moments that may have otherwise been forgotten. This time, I will admit that my travel journal was much more neglected as I could barely find the time to take everything in, and the most documentation I managed was a few bullet points per day.

So, I’m hoping to spend some time in the next couple weeks to document as well as I can through photos and stories on this blog, so that we’ll at least have some kind of record to look back on in years to come. A lot was seen and experienced, so I’ll probably break it down into a few different posts. For now, however, I couldn’t wait to share a few highlight photos:
