This month's blog is all about the beauty of the Asian countries and Oceania, and there are many.  I have been fortunate to visit two countries in this area; Australia and Tahiti, but this is only a fraction of what this part of the world has to offer.   My stay in Australia was so profound that it affected every area of my life and I cannot help singing its praises.  Everything about it was beautiful, including the land and it's people.  There were so many places that took my breath away, but those that still remain fresh in my memory 30 years later besides the times with my friends are Kakadu and Daintree.  


Both of these special places are national parks and are on the UNESCO list of World Heritage sites. Kakadu is in the Northern Territory and lies east/southeast of Darwin. It is roughly the size of Slovenia and is incredibly diverse.  I was priviledged to take a three day safari to visit its Yellow Waters, (where part of Crocodile Dundee was filmed) the aboriginal rock art at Ubirr, the giant sand homes of the outback termites, the gorgeous water lilies that dot much of the flood plain and camp out under the Southern Cross.  Where else can you find a Jesus bird walking on lily pads across the water, see a Kite with wings and a Salty all within the frame of one picture?  If you like Arizona and the beauty of the American desert, you will love this park.  I was mesmerized by the spinafax plants, the thorny devils that darted from one cover to another, Jim-Jim Falls and the bright red-orange of the earth.


Daintree is north of Cairns and lies on the coast by Cape Tribulation.  It is as green as the Red center is red-orange.  I had seen an ad somewhere in an Australian magazine in which Prince Charles and David Attenborough had sung its praises. That was enough for me!  So I decided to check it out.  It was very basic and we all slept in bunk beds, (three deep) but that just added to the fun.  One of my favorite memories there was being led through the bush by a local and shown the secrets of the jungle.  We saw tar trees that had sap like acid, huge unfurling palm fronds that looked like they had come off the set of Jurassic Park and green ants that had abdomens you could eat.  My other memory was waking up at the crack of dawn and joining a new friend for sunrise on the beach at Cape Tribulation.  We walked across a long pathway of raised wooden planks across the swamps to avoid being eaten by crocodiles and brought back a coconut from the beach for breakfast.  


My adventure in Tahiti was, well an adventure to say the least.  If you haven't read about it, click the link About Me, So You Want To Travel.  As I look back, it was a great educational experience and I was allowed to rest and relax on one of the most beautiful beaches of the world for three whole days.  I played in the surf, got a great tan and met some very unique people.  And the Gauguin exhibit I didn't get to see... well I finally got to see it last week in Chicago!  What is great about foiled vacation plans, is that you always have great stories to tell and there is usually something better that comes out of it.


Searching for our world's most beautiful spots has left me both delighted and amazed.  Now that I have completed my bucket list by going through our world's many countries, I will be starting to plan out the future stamps in my passport.  If you find something that catches your attention from this and the last two blogs, I encourage you to explore these and begin or continue your adventures.  My biggest regret is that I didn't throw caution to the wind more often and travel our beautiful world more.


Remember that you cannot take things with you as you grow older, but adventures and memories can never be taken from you!  Enjoy and once again ciao!   😎
