oh australia, how i do miss thee

Anglesea, Cairns , Surry Hills, and Sydney.

. . . . .

Hello friends!

I am finally back from the beautiful country of Australia, and I must say it has been one of the best trips I've taken in a while. (I actually got back a week ago, but really needed a vacation from my vacation. You know what I mean..?)

So, how was it? Pretty much A-MAZING!

I'm kinda suffering from separation anxiety to be honest. Saw so many things that I am missing at the moment, and so many more things I wish I had seen.

Oh Melbourne, how I wish I got to enjoy one of your alley cafes. Your historical city is quite charming, to say the least.

Cairns...your reefs are lovely and you really had me at the waving tortoise. Then came the lagoon and tamarind tree. You spoiled me.

And beautiful Sydney, pictures don't do you justice. And all your shops...oh, your wonderful, wonderful shops....swoon!

More things to share about Aussie in upcoming posts, including some great new shops I discovered.
