Finally getting around to blogging about my vacation. This felt like the first real vacation that I have taken since…..high school? In the past I’ve usually considered scientific conferences to be vacations or used vacation time to visit family instead. Maybe a weekend away here or there, but this time I actually took a full 2.5 weeks of vacation (which is a lot for someone from the U.S.) to visit Australia & Bali in August.
I’ve broken the trip into multiple parts:
Part One: Great Barrier Reef
I started my vacation by flying to Cairns, QLD so that I could spend 3 days aboard a boat and snorkel at the Great Barrier Reef. I went with Pro Dive Cairns & it was a great experience! The crew were friendly, I got to snorkel tons & I got to eat all of my favorite British foods 🙂
I created a number of mandalas while aboard:
Please join me on the next leg of my trip….Port Douglas.
