Last time I put up pictures of my first stop which was Brisbane and surrounding areas. After Brisbane myself and my sister headed off to Sydney for a week.

The token Sydney Opera House photo.

A very close look at the outside tiles of the Opera House. Pretty pattern, eh?

Sydney bridge and the Sydney Opera House, viewed from the Botanic Gardens.

Flying foxes hanging around in the Sydney Botanic Gardens. There were hundreds of these guys and even though it was day time, they were still flitting about, some with babies in pouches-amazing!

Some super cute fairy penguins in a wildlife park outside Sydney on our way to the Blue Mountains.

A friendly looking fellow at the Sydney Aquarium.

My favourite part of the Sydney Aquarium – a wall of glass looking into the main part of the aquarium with shoals of tropical fish swimming happily alongside sharks of all sizes. There was relaxing music in the background and I could have happily sat there all night watching them swim by.

That was my whistle-stop tour of Sydney…next stop Melbourne 🙂

Dublin Bus tickets

are supposed to save you money, aren’t they? And yet to buy a monthly ticket for the calendar month of March will cost me €98.00 as it would every month, yet to pay bus fare into and out of town once a day will amount to €96.80?

€2.20 in, €2.20 out = €4.40 per day X 22 working days in March = €96.80

I may have mentioned before that this time last year I was off travelling. I really can’t do it justice by blogging the whole trip, plus you’d probably get fed up listening to me 🙂

So I’ll just post a few of my favourite pics from each place and leave it at that. I’ll have a hard job picking a small few from my Australia and New Zealand collections, I took fecking hundreds of them!

Anyway, my first stop was Brisbane, Australia, so here are a few of my favourite photos from that leg of my trip.

I took a trip to Australia Zoo one day with some family…

Kangaroo chilling out in the afternoon sun. How relaxed does this guy look?

I hope I’m never as wrinkly as this Galapagos turtle!

A cassowary, apparently very dangerous – look at the legs on that bird!

Dusk in Brisbane city.

Just your average day on Stradbroke Island.

The main highway on Moreton Island 🙂

More to follow soon…
