Moments of Happiness: Our Australian Travels

I don't see how it's possible I'll ever share every photo I've taken on my travels. I'll possibly never share more than half, or perhaps a quarter. But that's okay. There's not enough time in the world to view every photo taken. What's more important is that the ones you look at take you back to a special place, a happy place. As NewMan's home, Australia is automatically special by association. But happy wasn't expected or anticipated just because my boyfriend's roots are there. Happy came to be because of the places we went, the things we saw and the things we experienced, all across a relatively small corner of the country from Brisbane to Sydney to Melbourne.

And if you'd like more information about planning your Australia trip budget this post will be super useful!

I've covered the more obvious things I did already on this blog, from the road trips like driving the Great Ocean Road to boarding the Manly Ferry. I've blogged about Bondi, Byron Bay, the Hunter Valley and my favourite museum in Sydney. I've shown you photos of Melbourne and written about my experience of being their on Australia Day. Now, I'd like to share with you some more personal, more unusual memories. The things we did that I thought weren't worthy of writing about, but funnily enough I enjoyed them just as much as walking the Harbour Bridge, exploring Taronga Zoo and photographing the Sydney Opera House.

As we ask ourselves when we'll be there next - because it's already been a year and a half - it's good to relive these moments of happiness.You can hover over the little hearts to find out more.
