Today I woke up at 3.45 in the morning with jetlag, but it didn’t bother me, interestingly. I lay in bed listening to the early morning chatter of the rainbow lorikeets, a super colourful little parrot that eats the seeds on the palm trees in my Uncle’s front garden. They were having a very excited conversation and it was fun to listen to them.
I know that Australia is very well known when it comes to wildlife like wombats, koalas, lizards, crocodiles, and my good friend the kangaroo. There are also lots and lots of different birds like lorikeets, and it is such good fun to watch their loud, colourful flights.
When I arrived in Brisbane yesterday morning it was 21C° and by the middle of the day when I was swimming in my Uncle’s pool it was 31C° which is very hot for me! (Start the conversation: #hotdownunder).
After all that travel it was fun to relax in the pool and then eat my favourite Australian ice cream, Turkish Delight!
