We had mentally been preparing ourselves for the skin-burning heat Australia is so famous for, for nearly 2 months. Imagine our surprise when we arrived at Melbourne airport with a comfortable 18° degrees and talk of rain in two days…
Lex was not gonna let any forecast get in the way of him wearing his shorts though, as can be seen in all the photos.
All in all, our first days in Australia could not have been nicer: Good food, backyard kangaroos, family reunions and a trip to Melbourne made us feel more warmly welcomed than any weather condition could have done.
The koala, kookaburra and parrot below were photographed in the Australian Wildlife Sanctuary in Healesville.
