Travel Tuesday: One Day in Australia

A little over a year ago I was traveling Australia with my husband. That trip was one of my favorite trips. We decided to save money on hotels and bring a tent to camp in instead. I did insist that we bring an air mattress though. We rented a car as well for our three week jaunt around New South Wales and Queensland.

Due to how mobile we were with the rental car we managed to cover about 8000 kilometers in our three weeks there. As I look back through photos I'm amazed at how much we managed to fit into our time there. Each day was filled with adventures of some sort and most days were spent traveling onto the next place as well.

These photos are all from one day, if that shows you a bit of the extreme variety that we'd see while traveling. 

I adored the bright yellow canola fields! I made sure we stopped at one to get photos of it.

This last image was from right outside our campground. This was also the campground that we found out that there are all sorts of parrots in Australia and some of them are considered real pests. 

 

So there you have just a brief glimpse into one day of our Australia trip. Do you have a favorite trip that you've gone on? I'd love to hear about it in the comments below!  

 

Travel Tuesday: Akaka Falls, Hawaii

I'd like to introduce you to the second weekly feature here on the blog, Travel Tuesday!  It probably won't come as much of a surprise to you that I adore traveling and part of the fun for me is the images I capture while traveling. I can always look back at those photos and remember vividly the travels and the amazing memories!

These are a few shots from Akaka Falls Sate Park in Hawaii. My aunt took us there on our very first day in Hilo and I was convinced that she wouldn't be able to top all of the gorgeous sights she showed us the first day. Every day after that she managed to show us a little more of Hawaii that showcased the natural beauty and wonder of the island. Such a gorgeous place and an amazing adventure!

What is your favorite part of traveling? Is it seeing new sights, exploring foreign cultures, trying out different foods, or something entirely different? Let me know in the comments! 

Okinawa Adventure Photography: Catching the Rainbow Flying Out of the Lighthouse

This morning was spent location scouting with a side of adventure. After checking out the location, and making sure the light would be perfect, the wandering continued. Meandering eventually led to Cape Zanpa Lighthouse and exactly the right location to see the rainbow flying out of the lighthouse.
