We Went to a Land Down Under


Posted In


A few months ago, Sara and I were looking on the internet to book some flights to Boston.  We saw an ad for cheap flights to Australia, clicked on it, and before we knew it – had decided to head to the Land Down Under for a couple of weeks of vacation!
It turned out to be great timing – we got engaged a few weeks before the trip, and so it ended up being a great break for us to enjoy things.  We traveled all over for two weeks, hitting up some great spots like Byron Bay, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Fraser Island, and the Whitsunday’s.  I even booked a a wedding while I was down there, so I’ll be heading back in December!
Here are some of my favorite pictures from the trip.  Unfortunately I don’t have any of the people pictures – those are all on Sara’s camera 🙂  But the landscape photography should do for now!

Carmen and Matty – our fabulous friends, hosts, and recently engaged as well!

The four of us

We spent 3 days and 2 nights sailing on a racing boat through the gorgeous Whitsunday Islands.  On an ex-racing boat, it was certainly a good sail 🙂  Towards the end of the trip, we each got a chance to steer ourselves.  Here is one of the other travelers we sailed with.

The best part about this image – check out the baby kangaroo’s (a “joey”) little feet hanging out from mom’s pouch!

Definitely a cute shot – a joey just hanging out
