The wonderful adventure in Australia...

So this week was an interesting adventure... it was scary, wet, cold and intense. During this week we started on Sunday night and had to have our hiking backpacks packed and ready to go until Wednesday night. We arrived at the church at 7 pm and it was crazy... we were then blindfolded and taken around Ashmore, it wasn't too much fun seeing as we didn't know where we were going or where we were gonna sleep. They dropped us all off at a random place and drove away before we could take our blindfold off. Once we heard the cars drive off, we knew we could take our blind fold off, and so we did... we were on a random car parking lot. We were given instructions about how we were to sleep that night and what time we had to meet Marty the next day. We were able to sleep in our own beds that night, Thank GOD!! The next morning we had to be up at 4:30 and meet up with Daniel at 5:15 in the morning, so we had to do an hour long walk, so we left and met Marty at 6 am. This was a challenging week were we had to physically overcome challenges and mentally. We were given very little food, and very little sleep.

The best part of this week was that My parents arrived while I was on this horrible adventure! It was so awesome having them here for a few day! We got to go see some crazy australian wildlife! My parents pet Kangaroos and we got to go see the Dolphins and sharks! It was so much fun, we did an amazing boat cruise and we got to spend a bunch of time together! It was so great to see them!
