Botanic Gardens of South Australia

Botanic Gardens of South Australia

We were also exposed to the Corpse flower, yes, you read that correctly, the Corpse flower. It doesn’t look like a flower in my opinion, more like a giant fruit. It may not be the most vibrant or prettiest flower around (in its current state pictured above) but it certainly gets your attention. Not only is it a fairly large flower, but it has a terrible stench. I wonder if maybe that is where it gets its name?

Adelaide, Australia: I saw Kangaroos!

Adelaide, Australia: I saw Kangaroos!

Driving around lost allowed us to see beautiful mountain views of the ocean, take some fun pictures and we even encountered a blue-tongued lizard! When we finally reached our destination, thanks to a friendly older Australian couple, I was blown away. First, there were so many kangaroos! Male, female, joeys, just hopping around freely in their environment, it was so cool to see!

Breathe. Pray. Let Go. (Philippians 4:6-7)

I mean think about it, the last time you were worried and losing sleep over an issue, or so stressed out to the point it made you sick, did those emotions serve any positive effect in your life? For me, ten times out of ten it only added to the trial I was experiencing. I have come to the point in my life where after I have done everything I can do, and the rest is out of my control, I have to give it up completely to...

Mondeville, a walk back in history!

Mondeville, a walk back in history!

I love to explore new cities and when they have an interesting history behind them, it makes you appreciate what you're witnessing/ experiencing even more.
