|Dangerous place, Australia.......|
Thanks to Grandpa Pig, The B&G have heard a little about a time that he likes to refer to as The Olden Days.
The problem here, that applying knowledge that has been acquired from Peppa Pig episodes can sometimes prove a stretch too far in real-life situations.
This, a case in point.
The B was born in 2007, The G in 2009, and, at times, I find myself unable to convince them that life existed prior to their respective arrivals.
In a bid to prove that myself and The W had a life during the pre-B&G era, I've spent recent days showing them photographs from our honeymoon.
Looking at these got me thinking about SAHDandproud's Around the World in 80 Words project and his kind invitation to me to submit a follow-up to the fond recollection of Edinburgh, The B's second birthday, that I posted earlier this week.
The challenge, to describe a favourite place, holiday, outing or travel-related experience.
In 80 words or less.
It's an invitation I'm delighted to accept again so, in a nutshell, here's a land Down Under:
Honeymoon, B&G-free, 2006, Australia, glorious.
The works: Sydney, Harbour Bridge Climb, bushwalking in the Blue Mountains, 48-hour sleeper train, Uluru (right to the top), rainforest, the Great Barrier Reef. Feasting on kangaroo and crocodile, a drunken didgeridoo lesson, the highlights captured on camera.
The B&G like the photographs.
Their favourite? The bridge? The reef? Ayres Rock?
Not a chance.
It's the enraged ostrich attacking me one morning at the zoo.
Like that's funny.
