When I think of Australia, I picture beaches, Koala bears and Kangaroos, and during our first week of our year abroad, we took a trip to North Stradbroke Island, Queensland, hoping to experience all three, never expecting to witness what we did. We didn’t appreciate how lucky we were to see Koalas and Kangaroos in the wild until we spoke to several Aussies who had still never seen them out of a zoo or sanctuary.
Travelling to Australia has always been at the very top of my bucket list. For years I’ve watched it on my tv, read about it in books and searched the internet and social media for all things Australia related. The people, the weather, the lifestyle and the beaches is everything I dreamt of, and this month I finally made it!
