When someone in Australia finds out you’re gay, they immediately tell you that Sydney has the largest gay population in Australia.  Almost like “you should go there and be with your own kind”.  Always said with the best intentions, I was amused by how often this happened – I’m not lying, it was like a [...]

Days 5 and 6 of our trip took us to Uluru, in what is known here as “the red center” (the soil is red, and it’s in the center of the country – those Aussies are so creative with naming things ). Uluru is also known more popularly as Ayers Rock. I’ll be honest; while [...]

And so it begins – our Adventures by Disney trip to Australia

| August 31, 2009

When I say that I’ve been wanting to visit Australia for most of my life, I’m not exaggerating.  I was 10 years old when I did a book report for school on Australia – and from that moment I was enamored with the idea of one day visiting that place myself.  Mind you I also [...]
