When traveling to other countries, I love visiting McDonald’s to see what kind of interesting menu items might be offered.

McD’s is also a good option when you’re traveling  with little kids since they’re usually excited to get a little toy with their meal. (A big added bonus is when the location still has a play area.)

I’ve previously written about McDonald’s we’ve visited in: Continue reading I’d Love To Try This International McDonalds Burger

Warned Not to Climb, 3 Tourists Stuck on Uluru, Need 11 Hour Rescue

uluruDuring our honeymoon, Kim and I headed to Australia where we got to see some amazing sights around the country. One of our favorites was our stop in the Australian Outback.

We loved visiting the famous rock formations, the Olgas and Uluru (Ayer’s Rock).

A big debate I had was whether or not to climb Uluru. Kim wasn’t for it, so reluctantly I agreed to only go a short way up to get a closer look. Continue reading Warned Not to Climb, 3 Tourists Stuck on Uluru, Need 11 Hour Rescue

When I first saw the headline for this story- “Giant SOS Message Saves Marooned Snorkelers” I thought about Tom Hanks in Castaway and the television show Survivor.

A group of 5 snorkeling near the Whitsunday Islands in Australia were left stranded on a rocky island without food, water or cellphones after their anchored boat drifted away.

I’ll always have a special place in my heart for Australia. Kim and I went there on our honeymoon and had an amazing time visiting a good amount of the country. While we feel like we saw lots of great sites in a variety of areas, there is just so much that we didn’t get to check out.

Just to name a few- I’d love to visit Tasmania, Brisbane, Kangaroo Island, Fraser Island and more of the Outback.

Hopefully one of these years we’ll make it back OR maybe we should move there?
