I must admit I had a tough time deciding which part of Oz I will visit. It was sort of a sweet dilemma at first, but as the vacation drew nearer, the sweetness of it disappeared. I had my mind set on going to Australia for a long time, but the incredible diversity that the continent offers, much like the USA, made me indecisive. Nevertheless, the decision had to be made. As most women, I am not such a fan of hard-core vacations in the wilderness and I didn`t want to just go to Sidney or some other big city, I decided upon the coastal area of Queensland. To this day, I am not sure what prompted me in that direction but I am grateful for it, as I had the time of my life.
