There is a really good reason that I haven't blogged for nearly 2 months. I'm in Australia. Yes, Australia. As in 11,000+ miles from home. I haven't mentioned the trip before now because I wasn't sure if it was going to work out, but it has and I've been here for over 3 weeks. My boyfriend lives near Perth on the west coast and we have been travelling all over the place. I left at the end of January and I will be back the beginning of March. Now, that said, I think it is about time that I post a few pictures.This is me outside my house in NH, USA pre-trip. Note the winter jacket, and tons of snow...granted it is a snow bank, but still...lots of snow.
This is me a couple weeks ago in the Daintree rainforest north of Cairns in Far North Queensland, Australia...note the tanktop, and lack of a winter jacket. The cool looking plants behind me are mangroves...if you haven't heard of them I highly suggest checking Wikipedia for them...they are really fascinating. They rely on the tide for survival and there is an entire salt water ecosystem in their roots. We have done a ton of travelling since and I will be putting up a whole bunch of stuff when I get back to the US next week...while I get over jetlag. See you then!

PS - Yes, I have been knitting. Not much, but I have made a pair of socks that I was supposed to finish for my bf's grandmother about, oh, last October (see previous post). I was trying to find the perfect yarn (I'm sure you understand) and I restarted them about six times (slight exageration, but close to it). I finally settled on a gorgeous colorway from Lorna's Laces...I have pics and will post them soon :) She has tried them on and announced them to be a perfect fit (phew!).

So glad to read a post! Wow, Austrailia - AWESOME! Can't wait to read about your trip - or meet up and get a coffee and do some knitting, perhaps?
