This week our bucket list destination is Australia, the land down under! I have wanted to visit Australia for as long as I can remember, and it was long before the Crocodile Dundee movies came out. I think it was koalas that first sold me, being the teddy bear aficionado that I am. Give me a break I as only ten! But since then I’ve learned a lot about Australia and all the glorious places I’d want to visit like the Sydney Opera House, Ayers Rock and the 12 Apostles to name a very view. But in order to have a trip like this I think I’d need to plan for at least a month. Australia is huge, and I’d want to tour the continent and see as much as possible.
Of course no trip to Australia would be complete without visiting the Great Barrier Reef. The last time I snorkeled was in the Mediterranean and it was years ago, but snorkeling in the Reef would definitely be a dream come true.
One of the best things of Australia – at least for those in the northern parts of the US and all of Canada right now – may be that it’s summer there. There is a reason it’s called “down under.” And that is definitely a plus with the frigid temperatures we’ve been experiencing. So in order to warm you all up let’s visit Australia today.

I hope this little taste of Australia has whet your desire for more. I’m determined to visit this beautiful country and spend as much time as possible there to see it all. I hope you all have a great weekend. Next week we’re headed off to Greece.

Great post by Kristen Lamb. Definitely hit a lot of nails on the head for me!
Wow, it’s the last Monday in February already. The beautiful sunshine this morning reminded me of the day I took this picture near Chattanooga, Tennessee. It was a lovely day, the view was breathtaking and peaceful, and I think it pairs well with today’s quote. Kindness is never too much of an effort and like Karma it comes back to you in spades. I hope you all have a wonderful week filled with peace, kindness and beauty.
