Australia Day 1: We made it!!!

Hi Love Bugs,

What a whirlwind the last 35 hours has been. I am happy to announce that I am safely back on land, but I must admit the 16 hour flight from Dallas to Brisbane was no where near as horrible as I thought it would be. International economy beats the crap out of US economy. While on the flight, I watched a bunch of premiere movies: The Book Thief, Twelve Years a Slave, and Delivery Man. I was impressed that the airline was able to broadcast such new movies. The food however, was subpar at best–needless to say, I starved. After exiting the terminal, I was so excited to get to Cairns, and let me tell you, this quaint little beach town does not disappoint! Here are some pictures of our day:

You must try the Bundaberg Ginger Beer while in Australia. Seriously heaven in your mouth!! As a forewarning, you must like ginger….a lot.

Sunshine, flowers, and friends–what more could you ask for?

“Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine!” -Anthony D’Angelo

Lucky for us we had a lot of both! Today was truly beautiful. If you live in SWFL, pack yourself a picnic, grab your hunny, some good friends, and your camera and head to Lakes Regional Park off Gladiolus! We were blessed with beautiful weather, and the ability to go bike riding today with some friends. If you don’t have a bike, do not fret! You can rent bikes, kayaks, paddle boats, you name it–I am sure they have it. We also stumbled upon a beautiful vegetable garden and fragrance garden.
