We’ve made it here safely… after 40 hours of traveling by plane, train and automobile (okay, no train involved) we have reached our starting location of Port Douglas, Australia — directly across from the Great Barrier Reef. I’m one suitcase short (actually, the only one that I brought…) but have made do while the airline sorts out their ‘accident’. The accents of the agents at the desk keep me from losing my temper and only make me smile… despite the lack of clothing that I now have.
After a bit of touring the marshy wetlands of the upper territory, including a fantastic trip into Daintree forest, I’m using this day to relax, sort through local markets and recover. Hope you enjoy a few photos from the rainforest journey .
Yes, that’s a crocodile. And there are quite a few up here in this neck of the woods. Thankfully I didn’t encounter this fellow sunning on the beach as I had been warned I might, but he was hiding in the shadows here on our boat trip up the Daintree river. Read more »

The hubby and I will be tramping across Australia, New Zealand and Thailand for three weeks… and we’re leaving today! After two very long flights I should find myself right smack dab in the middle of the Great Barrier Reef. So today is my usual 12 hour working day — and tomorrow maybe a little sun bathing and a good novel. Actually, I’m quite looking forward to the simple fact that it’s summer on that side of the world.
I will continue to post all of my FAVORITE holiday inspiration daily (don’t worry… I have a few posts in the pipeline) and look forward to sharing a bit of my adventure details as well. Bon Voyage! (with a down under accent)
