australia and new zealand - week 1

Hey everyone. Sorry for the long absence. Things have been pretty hectic since we got home. I wanted to get some photos from our trip up, so I'm going to do it in a few bits. Up first, our week together in Far Northern Queensland.

We stayed in Palm Cove, about 20 minutes north of Cairns. This gave me lots of practice driving on the opposite side of the road. It was much stranger than expected. Unfortunately, there are no pics of this, as Kristie was shaking with fear everytime we got out of the car, and the one's she took didn't come out.

Australian cheese is the most truthful example of product labeling ever.

Scott spent 3 1/2 weeks in the hospital after Kristie offered to pour him some of this locally brewed rootbeer.

Thanks for reading, here is the link to more of our pics from the week.

The whole week was amazing. The great barrier reef is sooooo cool. The pictures and video we'd seen before going didn't even come close to the real thing. We hope you all get a chance to go. Even though you aren't as attractive as us, you will probably still have a good time.

Up next: New Zealand

Home at last

Hey everyone. We made it back. So, if you were planning a break-in, you'll have to wait til we go to work, now. (and remember, no shoes on the carpet, jerkface.)

We took lots of pics and made tons of great memories. Our week together in North Queensland was the obvious highlight of the trip, but Kristie had a great time in Sydney, while I was at class in New Zealand. (The class was pretty incredible, too).

I will post some pics in the next day or so. It's late, though.
