376--Australia: White Aborigines and Blue Mountains
@ CherieSpotting     Feb 27 2007 - 11:14 PST
Cherie with an Australian Aborigine.  Body painting is an important Aboriginal ceremonial custom; the white ochre "paint" is derived from kaolin.

We snapped a few photos together and he harmonized on his didgeridoo to the delight of locals and tourists trying to flee the bustle of Sydney.

After relaxing in the Blue Mountains (not really blue) and Grose Valley (definitely not gross), Liam (good travel buddy) and I drove through the forests of eucalyptus trees and headed for the city—Sydney.

Sydney is full of innovative architecture from the Harbor Bridge to the Sydney Opera House. We ended the day with a stroll through Luna Park and a movie at an outdoor theater. From the first humans to inhabit Australia to the cutting edge architecture of Sydney’s world-famous skyline, come see the photos of a day in Sydney.

338--Australia: Byron Bay

Welcome to my favorite town in Australia...Byron Bay.

Welcome to my favorite town in Australia...Byron Bay.

cherie writes: Byron Bay is a magical place where we walked on the beach, splashed in the water, and paid a visit to the Byron Bay Emergency Room.

Diane and I were walking along the beach when I stopped to take a photo. Suddenly a gust of wind ripped a shade-structure out of the sand and it headed straight for Diane's head. Diane was knocked over, and in extreme pain. Lifeguards and later paramedics helped take Diane to the ER. Luckily the X-rays showed that Diane's spine was unfractured.

Later we realized that there are better ways to get the attention of the Australian surf rescue team.

337--Australia: Off-Roading on Fraser Island

cherie writes: Fraser Island is the largest sand island in the world. There's not just sand on this sand-island. There are lakes, rivers, and rainforests. You can't swim in the sea (unless you'd like to be a snack for a tiger shark) but you can jump in one of the many fresh water lakes! It's a place where all the roads are sand and people often arrive to their offices via airplanes.

Here are the photos of our 4x4 Jeep adventure where we came across wild dingoes, and spiders the size of your face.

336--Australia: Christmas in the Whitsundays
@ CherieSpotting     Jan 04 2006 - 06:30 PST
Celebrating Christmas 2005 at the Whitsundays.  In the pool at Club Croc in Long Island, we splash around in our Santa hats.

cherie writes: Santa arrived to Australia ridding a jet ski. It was too warm for the reindeer to come, so a cuddy croc helped Santa hand out the gifts! Celebrating the holidays at Club Croc in Long Island, we started our day by the beach and ended in the pool.

Even though the climate was tropical, our Christmas tree still had snow on it (the real painted-on kind!) The only thing that was cool about this holiday were the frosty drinks by the pool. And who could forget the smooth tunes floating from the saxaphone.

About 20 friends exchanged silly presents, darned paper crowns, feasted, danced and celebrated life! (I got a vibrating kangaroo for Christmas, which turned out to be the gift that keeps on giving.)

335--Australia: Images from Oz

cherie writes: Follow the yellow brick road of your imagination to the oldest continent in the world--Australia. The land of OZ may be geographically old, but politically, it's a young country. Australia became a member of the Commonwealth of in 1901.

In the land of Oz, gambling and brothels are legal. Many Aussies can trace their roots back to the days when the British used to send their criminals to Australia. In other words, every Aussie has a little bit of convict in him.

One more quick fact: the two animals on the Australian emblem are the Emu and the Kangaroo. Why? Because neither animal ever takes a step back!

334--Australia: Show me your map of Tassie!
@ CherieSpotting     Dec 30 2005 - 09:11 PST
Show me your map of Tassie!  Cherie holds up a map of Tasmania, Australia's only island state.

Show me your map of Tassie! Cherie holds up a map of Tasmania, Australia's only island state.

cherie writes: If an Aussie says "Show me your map of Tassie", he doesn't want directions. According to Aussie blokes, the island of Tasmania (Tassie) resembles a female body part.

While in Tasmania, we met a few new friends (Marjo and Eric) and reunited with old friends--Hannah, Diane and Hilda. We biked down Mt. Wellington, weaved (literally) our way through wineries, climbed through caverns, splashed along new shores, spied on penguins, fed wombats and drove to the end of the road. Here are a few images from Tasmania!
