2005 Wood Family Trip to Australia

In three weeks and countless thousands of kilometers, we sampled the cosmopolitan pleasures of Sydney, watched Aussie parliamentary action in Canberra, enjoyed the coffee culture of Melbourne, played with kangaroos, wallabies, and koalas on Kangaroo Island, saw a Green Day concert in Adelaide, journeyed by train into the Red Center, communed with Uluru near Alice Springs, snorkeled along the Great Barrier Reef, befriended the fruit bats of Brisbane, and visited friends upon our return to Sydney.

Here's a link to the website (text written by Jenny) from our trip: http://www.sjsu.edu/faculty/wooda/oz/index1.html

Nice video! And certainly appropriate music throughout.

By the end of this year, my husband and I will have enough airline "points" for two free plane tickets r/t anywhere in the world. (woo-hoo!) Australia is at the top of the list at the moment for a trip next Spring.

Oh, dd, I hope you go. And spend the money to get to the Red Center. It's so very different than coastal Australia. What a place!
