Australia Wish List

Australia Wish List

Before I go somewhere new I always make a list of the cities, towns, tourist attractions and middle of nowhere places I want to visit. I might have read up about the place before I go or it might be somewhere I have just seen a silly photo of and really want to go take my own photo like it. Australia is much bigger than anywhere else I have been so I want to make sure I don’t miss anything out, as I keep reading about these silly little towns I know I will forget! This is just a personal list and something I like to do.
