This year my Mom came to visit over the holidays and as far as I know, this was her first big overseas trip.
We had a really nice Christmas, touring around the countryside on our own little amateur safari. She managed to get pictures in the wild of all the big Australian animals including a koala, a salt water crocodile, a pademelon wallaby, loads of kanagaroos, a kookaburra and lots of different lizards!
She snorkeled on the Great Barrier Reef where she found Nemo and a large Green Sea Turtle. She even managed to see two sharks out there and volunteered to take a SCUBA lesson! We were all very proud of how adventurous she was!

I hope you all had a fantastic start to 2010!
