A Look Back at My Australia Trip

On this day last year I arrived in Australia (technically on the 17th, down under time). I stayed for nearly three weeks, visiting Perth, Melbourne, and Sydney, spending almost all of that time working to produce two of the largest fundraising events in Australian history. It was super hard. Rain, tough manual labor, going to bed at midnight and waking up at 4am, tent sleeping. Despite all of the difficulties I got to experience the excitement and emotion of thousands of people coming together and riding their bikes for two days to raise money for cancer care and research. So much hope! And, while I only had about three days off to see the sights, I made the most out of my time. I'd love to go back during warmer months to see more beaches and get up to the only area I didn't travel to, the northeast where the Great Barrier Reef is.

To mark the year anniversary of my trip I thought I'd reminisce with some pictures! From on-route at work, to the Blue Mountains, Darling Harbor, the Great Ocean Road (my favorite part of the trip), and lots of pit stops across the country, here are some of my favorite shots from my trip to the land down under.
