Happy Australia Day!

Happy Australia Day to all my Aussie readers! 

To all my international readers, January 26th is celebrated as Australia Day down under. It’s a public holiday (and normally a long weekend) for everyone in Oz to spend the day with their family and friends. This year we’re having a big BBQ at home to celebrate Australia Day, as well as Thom’s 25th birthday which is on Saturday. It’s the first year in a while that we haven’t been at the Murray River for this weekend (trying to avoid mosquito bites before the wedding) so it will be fun to celebrate with all our friends. To celebrate Australia Day online and share a piece of my home country’s beauty with the rest of the world, here are some of my favourite pictures from my travels around Australia in the last few years.

**DISCLAIMER: I am painfully aware that I have not yet had the opportunity to visit our great Outback. It is at the top of my travel list and we are trying to figure out a way to fit it into our travel plans as soon as possible. Uluru, Darwin, The Kimberley’s and Australia’s Great Red Centre, I’m coming for you as soon as possible!
