Feathered Rainbows

One of the joys of travel is experiencing new and unexpected delight.

For example, birds that would be considered “exotic” (and only found in zoos in Canada) are commonplace in Australia.

This rainbow lorikeet is one of many that regularly come to the trees and veranda railings asking to be fed. In fact, there is a pair that have become so comfortable with me that they follow me around everywhere I go, landing right beside me, chirring and chatting.

Just one of my many feathered friends!

Where In The World?

Okay, we all have our “thing”. Some people prefer to stay close to home; others love adventure. Some are drawn to extreme sports; others enjoy¬†a walk in the woods.

So, where in the world can you find an arched bridge where people deliberately choose (and pay) to walk across the top of the arch???

Figure it out, and you’ll know where I am right now (and no, I’m not one of the adventurous ones in the photo!!)
