365 Day Photography Challenge- Day 14- Catchups

Today I had lunch in Parramatta with friends I met when I was traveling around Europe. From left it’s Ange, Jeanette, Jet and Natasa. I traveled through 10 countries in 4 weeks with these guys and I can truly say, they made the trip what it was for me!

I suffer from quite high anxiety, especially during periods of change and without the 4 women in this photo, I would not have had the amazing experience that I did and overcome my anxiety. So many memories and so many laughs with this lot. I couldn’t have asked for a better group to share such incredible experiences with. I love catching up with them and remembered all the hilarious and awesome things we did together.

I have formed a bond with these guys that will never be broken. We haven’t seen each other, in almost year and yet it feels like we were just together eating lunch in Venice, or Prague, or Lucerne together. I am very grateful for travel buddies and friends like these guys.

365 Day Photography Challenge- Day 10- Reptiles and the like

Today I headed home from Newcastle. My partner who accompanied me had never been to Newcastle and on the trip home we decided to stop in at the Australian Reptile Park near Gosford. It was the best decision we could’ve made. We had an awesome time taking photos of all the animals and just generally being excited to be “traveling”.

I’ve always really loved frogs. I used to scoop them out of my pool when I was little and they would be just floating around in there. I’d keep them with me on the grass for the day then let them run free, hoping to find them hanging out in the pool again the next day. I am especially fond of green tree frogs as they just seem so chilled out to me.

Today’s photo was a hard decision as there were so many to choose from but we settled on this one because the guy in focus is just having a nice chill session on his log with some friends.

Enjoy fellow frog lovers!
