Lizzie Rhea: My Trip to Australia

I mentioned going to the 2014 Barefoot Worlds in my last blog about girls jumping. My experience in Australia was very fun. It was the best trip I have ever taken. Australia is an awesome country, and I can’t wait to go back again. The people, the food, the weather, and the skiing were all great.

I met people from all over the world during my trip to Australia, and I loved them all. We had different languages, accents, cultures, and traditions. It was very interesting to learn about what it is like in other countries. All of the Australians were so nice and friendly and welcoming.

I loved meeting the locals when we went to restaurants. Australian food was delicious and cool. I loved drinking the lemony Solos and snacking on Savoy crackers – they were my favorite. I also loved the meat pies and the prawns. I regret that I never tried the vegemite on my toast though! I will next time!

The weather in Australia was perfect while we were there. It was sunny and warm for most of the trip. It was so nice to escape from America’s cold winter, and go to Australia’s warm summer.

The water and the skiing were great too! I loved the Custom Ski Boats, which were used in the tournament. The water was very smooth each morning and afternoon. The Max Kirwan Ski park was a perfect spot in the middle of a beautiful countryside. We even saw wild kangaroos on the ride to the lakes. The Mulwala Ski Club was a really fun place to hang out, and Lake Mulwala was very beautiful.

The only part of the trip I did not like was the flight. When we arrived in Melbourne, I asked my Mom if we could just live there, because I did not want to have fly back! After such a great trip, I think the miserable flight is worth it to go to such a great place! I am looking forward to my next trip to Australia!
