This trip was so much fun~
I really enjoyed myself.
Usually I get a bit sick in long cars rides... but our tour guide kept us laughing and with good music, I for the most part felt great.
(I was also able to sit towards the front which helped.)
I sang out loud, jumped into the water, was the first to say "yay!" to any hiking... (although most of it was easy downgrade I still had a peaceful nice time in the back of the group, dodling and enjoying the scenery.)
I had yummy shark and homecooked fish. I only eat fish when I travel, because its hard to be a strict vegetarian and still stay nutritioned. These fish times were so YUMMY. I felt full and happy about the choice to eat fish.
Although I do not part take in getting drunk or smoking a hundred packs of smokes, I played pool, and won! And enjoyed laughing with people, singing outloud along to 80s buttrock.
I met some really great people. I enjoyed every moment.
I had some unique times, such as meeting a woman named Ani Choekyi. I felt the purest joy and love in my heart.
I never knew I liked war memorials, til I saw the one in Canberra. The history, artifacts, and the presentation of it sparked my mind, peeling away the sterotypes made about these places.
The parliment house was great to see and I took some photos to show my working democracy school back home.
I like learning about the guys with big eye brows.
These 3 days were immaculate.
Being just inches from (LIVE) kangaroo (finally saw ones that were not road kill before this trip,) I got amazing photo's to send back home.
I am tourig with other companies in a few days, but feeling completely blessed, for no matter what is to come I got to do almost everything I already wanted to do. Leaving the future blank and free to take whatever comes. (I didnt even know I had hopes to do certain things, but felt complete when I got dropped off in VIC.)
HUGE Thank you to our guide ,
and to all the other tourists I met. (I hope where ever you are you met your destinations as happy as myself!) And thank you Oz E. for putting together this great trip that could have been just a boring 8 hour drive from Sydney to Melbourne.
I am truly grateful.
