    Travel: Gallery of Modern Art

    Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. It’s stunning. The gallery won’t take you very long, maybe about 60-90 minutes, unless you like to really take your time. A few modern pieces were also at the Queensland Art Gallery, and some of the same artists were represented. But, the best part, is both are within walking distance. Grab a snack, a coffee, and enjoy the afternoon looking at art. Sounds amazing! Okay, let’s check out some of the installations. Gallery of Modern Art This…

    Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital! Be sure to check it out if you’re visiting the Australia Zoo. It’s an additional 2$ when you buy your tickets and I almost forgot to add it, since the agent didn’t ask. We spent about 5 minutes walking over, and then visited for about 10-15 minutes (I like to read all the signs!). If you have time, it’s worth checking out. Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital We saw a tiny kangaroo who lost his mom. They made him a sweet flannel…

  • Chez Noosa Motel

    Travel: Chez Noosa Motel

    Chez Noosa Motel in Noosa, Queensland. It’s not a fancy place, and although we walked to home from the beach, it’s nice to have a car. The price is good, the property is clean, and it’s safe. A win-win all around. The one tricky thing that happened while we were visiting, the power in our unit shut off due to a tripped breaker around 2am or 3am on our last night. We woke up super hot! Nothing a shower couldn’t fix, and all our food…

That’s right, we hiked over 18km of trails in Tewantin National Park. Oh, and be sure you use your map, since not all the trails are clearly marked. We hiked this beautiful shaded place on an extremely hot day – it was 38 degrees outside. That’s slightly over 100. Hot! Luckily about 80%…
