Goodbye Australia

Dear Australia,
We just wanted to let you know what a wonderful year we had in your country. We feel like we have seen so much. From learning to drive on the left hand side of the road to living on a busy block we adjusted to the differences. We will never forget the sweet sound of school children speaking in unison with their lovely little accents, and how it is the law for children to wear a hat in the summer months. We won't forget all your interesting road signs and the first time we saw a koala bear in a tree! We were spoiled with the cafe's and restaurants and did our part in giving back to your economy. We were thrilled with your ocean even though it was a tad bit chilly! The fairy penguins were among our favorite animals and we hope you do your part to protect their habitat. We were enamored with the graceful whales that come to shore each year and the stunning beauty of the Great Ocean Road. We will never forget the incredible Great Barrier Reef, swimming with sea turtles was surreal. The smell of eucalyptus trees reminded us of our childhood memories in California. We will remember fondly the people in Australia that made our time so much more enjoyable. Australia, you were just what the doctor ordered. Farewell for now,
Love, the Rentons
