Hello blog viewers! (Hi, Mom.)

What a week we have had! It started with an incredible few days in the outback hiking around Uluru (Ayers Rock) and Kata-Tjuta while sleeping on the ground under the stars every night. Our guide Joe and the Aboriginal contact Lou taught us so much about their incredible culture and we got to touch 7,000-15,000 year old hand prints in a cave on their land.

Leaving the Outback, a wide assortment of planes trains and automobiles have finally landed us in the coastal town of Noosa. We had planned on spending the day surfing on the beach but the weather had other plans so we may end up catching a movie together instead! It was a tiring few days of travel and a couple medical issues but all turned out good in the end and we are all excited for where we are and whats to come. Check back next week for more updates!

Peace, love, and Hongi!
