With lots of plum trees, a sheep or two, a kangaroo...

Finished off my last day in Australia by walking along the Sydney harbour and Botanic gardens all morning and having some amazing fish and chips overlooking the Sydney Opera House this afternoon. Had lots of time to reflect on my last week in Australia and how lucky I was to spend it with the great friends I did.
The last day in Airlie Beach was spent on a sailing boat that we took out to the Whitsunday Islands where I got to try out Scuba Diving for the first time in the Great Barrier Reef. Despite the rough ocean ride to and from the diving site, the day was really enjoyable. Got to scuba with some really cool fish and see some amazing coral! The following day was the last day that Aussie, Freeze, and I would spend together as Aussie had to fly back to Canberra to go to University. The girls surprised me that night with a fabulous birthday dinner complete with a meal out at the Outback bar and grill, the coolest birthday cake ever (full of Australian Lollies), and some Australian gifts to accompany the great evening. Great way to spend my 2t3rd! After seeing Aussie off to the airport, Freeze and I started the road trip back down the coast . 2 1/2 days of driving, we saw alot of Australia in a short time. Byron Bay, Brisbane, and Port Macquarie were just a few of my favorite cities. We then made it to Sydney where I said goodbye to Freeze. What a great road trip it has been! Lots of stories to be shared!
I'm now off to Fiji for a few days before slowly making my way back to Canada. Although im excited to see all my friends and family back in canada, I am going to miss all the travelling, exploring, Aussie friends, and funny stories! Its been a ball Australia!!
