My Dream Vacation

I've always wanted to go to Australia, so last night I just went ahead and added it to my Bucket list and started planning my trip. My friend Laura from Los Angeles goes once a year and talks about how wonderful it is. I started at this website to make all my arrangements. It is who Laura used. When in Sydney, I would stay at the Y Hyde Park. It is withing walking Distance of ChinaTown, the Opera House, and the Rocks and it's only $32 per night.
Then I would fly to Pert and stay at City Waters Perth hotel which is right on the banks of Swan River. Once again, no need to rent a car. Everything is close by. A little more expensive though at $86. a night. But this website always has bargain destinations and last minute bookings.
Then on to Melbourne where I would stay at the Kingsgate hotel. This is fun one as it is in walking distance to the Crown Casino.
My last stop is to be Brisbane. Here I would stay at the Tangalooma Wild Dolphin Resort. This is the beach part of my ten day trip. Surrounded by crystal clear water and white sandy beaches. It is a short cruise from Brisbane. Then I fly home.
I am so glad Laura told me about this site. You should check it out and plan your dream vacation to Australia. Of course in my notebook, mine is a lot more detailed than what I wrote here. They give awesome details about every hotel in Australia along with pictures. I mean everything, from the cheapest backpackers hotels to the 5star hotel.
So where is your dream vacation? Have you planned it out on paper or is it still in your head?

Can I come too? *giggles*

I'll check that site up later, because Australia has been on my top wish list for places to visit for as long as I can remember, but it is on the other side of the glode for me since I live in Sweden.

A long way from home and everytime I've had a look at it, I can just confirm that it has been to expensive for me.

If I go there, I wanna be away for 1-3 months at least. I wanna see it all! Well, not all, because that would obviously take for ever, but at least the main attractions.

..and definitely the Great Barrier Reef, which you forgot to mention :-D

I am sure you will love Australia, of course I am a bit biased I live here in Melbourne. Anyway, I know that it is not cheap to travel here from where you are and thought that only if you are interested I could introduce you to a business that you can run from home that is actually based in the USA. I was introduced to it a while ago and I have been able to fulfill a lot of the items I have had on my wish list as a result. I am not far from doing it fulltime and I absolutely love it. Check it out if you are interested?
