Wanderlust // Australia

“Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of loving.” -Miriam Beard 
G’Day Mate!  (which I learned no one actually says… except for the kangaroo dolls at the souvenir shops)  So I went down under… all the way around the world!  From Georgia to Australia!  After a 20 hour flight…. several movies, naps, and cocktails… I arrived in Sydney!
Long stretchy maxi dresses are a must for long flights.  Planes are always hot before take off and then get super cold.  Layers that include comfy cardigans, jackets, and scarfs are essential especially if you’re in a window seat.  Plus your scarfs and jackets double as pillows and blankets!  I always pack slipper socks in my bag and a Evian water spray/mister bottle to keep my skin from getting dry in the air.
My friend and I hit the ground running when we landed.  We checked in, showered, and went out!  Bondi, Sydney bars, Manly beach, Manly Wharf, shopping, Sydney Opera House, Sydney Zoo, and riding the ferry were just a few of the things we did!  Brangelina and Chelsea Handler were even in Sydney when we were!  The craziest thing I did while I was there was eat Kangaroo… yes eat (insert OMG monkey emoji with hands over mouth).  It was…. alright.  I would not eat it again but I heard it was very healthy for you.  Poor roo.
I ended up buying some crazy things while I was there …. placenta cream, lanolin cream, emu oil, paw paw’s lip balm, obviously a boomerang and kangaroo balls beer opener.  A lot of their “skin/pill products” down there have pictures of sheep, sharks, crocs, and kangaroos on the bottles.  Hmmm.  So I obviously bought some. Duh.  And I will say… I’m a fan!  Love them!
I can’t wait to see the rest of Australia… next visit!  Next stop Bali so check back in later this week to see more of my Eat Pray Love journey and travel details in Indonesia!!
Now that we have our very own Australian blogger on the team she can tell me what I missed down unda in Sydney and if I went totes tourist or made the locals proud? haha What do y’all think?
