Since I don't write on this blog as often as I would really like to, I decided that a fun way to create some posts would be to add an entry for each of the items on my "Bucket List." I am basically going to jot down my thoughts as to why that particular entry made it to the list in the first place.
Bucket List Item #10 - Go to Australia
Ever since I was a very small child, I've had a special place in my heart for koalas. Back then, it was because they are cute and cuddly, or seemingly so. Remember, I was a kid, so I knew them from TV, the little NatGeo animal cards we would get in the mail, and from stuffed animals. As I've gotten older, I still like koalas, but I think it is more for the fact they sleep 90% of their lives and the one food they eat basically keeps them "out of it." Nice.
There is just kind of appeal to me about Australia. I want to see Sydney, of course, but I also want to take a ride through the deserts, watch the sunsets there, and get a feel for what the locals really think about Foster's Beer, Outback Steakhouse, and Crocodile Dundee.
Even though this is on my list, it's not a "high priority" item. I mean, sure, if I win a trip or something, I'm gone. But, there are other things ahead of this in my list as far as priority goes. Still, if I even get the chance to go, I'll jump on it.
