In 2 days my eldest daughter is off for “The Land Down Under” as part of a study abroad semester.  During her stay she’ll visit Sydney, scuba drive The Great Barrier Reef, tour Tasmania, but spend most of her time in Melbourne.  I’m extremely excited for her but as a parent I have to admit there is some angst over her being on the other side of the world. 

Australian currency I picked up from the bank… 


  1. How exciting for her... hopefully she's have a blast and not get caught in the floods!

    How colourful is our money? PLUS you can wash it (accidentally with the laundry) and its fine.

  2. BB - yes your money is very interesting. First reports are very positive, she's having fun and making friends with the locals...
