Adventures down under: Adelaide and Melbourne

In total,  we spent 16 (instead of 19) days in Australia – which is most definitely waaay short, I know.  But,  given the time restraints,  we tried to make the best of it and hit up some of the major sites before wrapping up our tour  in Sydney. 809 more words

We stumbled across The Lost Gardens of Heligan around six years ago after finding a leaflet in the local tourist office. We decided to spend the day there even though we didn’t really know what to expect and, I recall to this day, how we were both blown away by the beauty of this botanical garden. 566 more words
