Trip Down Under

While I’m waiting for my avocados to ripen for some more smashed avo, I can’t help but reminisce about my trip to Australia. After spending two months in India, I took Malaysia airlines (actually a great airline!) to Sydney, for a 2 week trip of perfection…

Then we drove an hour through the Blue Mountains to get to Echo Park, home of the Three Sisters Rock Formation, which I got to climb down on!

And capped the day at Featherdale Wildlife Park – a wildlife sanctuary that saves any wounded or abandoned animals. You got to just walk around and pet all the animals as they roamed around 🙂

Obviously goats are my favorite animal (aside from cats…)
