So I give you 'a frantically busy 3 months in the life of a seabird biologist' - a photo diary. Enjoy.
1) Surprise beach camp-out 30th birthday party for the bf featuring: rock climbing, frisbee, camping in caves, bonfires, smores, lots of music, fire dancing, and a crap-load of fun!
2) Mapping seabird colonies on remote islands a few hours offshore of northern New Zealand (read: no showers, tents, 12 hours of hiking a day, rain, wind, mosquitos.... but a whole lot of seabirds and beautiful scenery!)
3) Trip to Australia to visit friends for Christmas. Koalas, kangaroos, mango daiquiries, beaches, shopping, and of course: birds!Sydney:
|Amazing vintage shopping in Newtown|
|The Blue Mountains|
|Best 16 dollars I have EVER spent!|
|NYE walk in the grass|
|Marijuana museum in Nimbin|
|The kangaroos were completely uninterested in my kind snack offering|
|Aboriginal rock carvings|
