This is the first of a couple of visits Down Under until a couple of years ago I actually had barely even heard of Darwin but then thanks to wonderful friends around the world on Facebook I started taking more of an interest in the places that did not automatically feature on must visit lists and Darwin was one of the places added to the places I dream of seeing.
While still having beaches to rival its Gold Coast counterpart, and of course the most amazing sunsets, it does have more to offer some of which I would be looking forward to and one which would definitely appeal to the monster.
The thing that would make this a dream holiday for the monster while giving me a nervous breakdown is this…
The monster loves Crocodiles and alligators so the chance to get up and personal would be something he would love. And while I might enjoy the experience if I was alone the monster in such close proximity to these prehistoric predators would do my blood pressure no good at all. I love this idea of the sunken tube you can watch them from and would love to see this in more places where they have fascinating wildlife.
The other thing that appeals to me is the huge National Park situated just outside Darwin, I really love the idea of getting to fly right over the falls and exploring the terrain from the air.
You might ask why this is a place I dream of going rather than one that I could realistically go to, well the answer is that to visit Australia is a once in a lifetime trip for most of us and if I ever got the chance I would head to my other Aussie choice coming in a few letters time. Very few of us will ever be in a position to visit ever town or city in every country we want to go to both because of finances and time constraints.
Every journey we are lucky enough to take even to locations that we do not always appreciate are adventures for others. I posted a Vlog this week walking round a field next to my own home and by doing so shared my experiences with you, my friends around the globe. After yesterdays blog I had a lovely visitor here who linked back to his own visit to Cambodia which I found fascinating as well as getting just a little jealous. The thing I would ask is if you have a quiet day take a camera out with you and film your local area, share it with others and remember what is everyday for you could be someone else’s dream place to see.
