Australia will forever have a special place in my heart. I was 18 and off on my first solo-mission around the world. My trip began in snoozey Darwin, touring around the Northern Territories before meandering south to Alice Springs. From Alice I flew to Cairns living it up at the Great Barrier Reef and then chased the East coast down to Sydney, followed by an extended stay with one of my oldest friends in Brisbane and a spontaneous trip to Tasmania. Here are some selected pictures from my travels to brighten up your day.
