Our Australian Journal


This journal was written while travelling through Australia.  We tried to capture the events of the day in ways that photographs could not: describing the people we met, the foods we tasted, and the smells and sounds of the various Australian climates.  There are thirteen entries in total.
 

Alternatively, you can browse the journal entries in any order.  Using the calendar below, choose a journal entry to read by clicking on the date.  Each calendar entry lists the highlights of that day's travel.
