Ever wanted to hug a Kuala bear? There is a Kuala Park Sanctuary near Sydney, Australia where you can! You can also feed the kangaroos. Australia has that kind of effect on people. It is so surprising and fun. You can bungee jump off towers at night. Thrilling! Or you can camp by a billabong and take a safari through the Outback in Australia. It is not all rough and ready though. Sydney is sophisticated enough to satisfy everyone from opera lovers, to world class shoppers, to foodies on a hunt for new and interesting food!
Who would have thought of the incredible diversity of the Pacific? From the glacier walks on the Fox Glacier in New Zealand to the fabulous nature and beaches of Micronesia, the Pacific has great distances to cross but amazing finds once you get to your destination. On the faraway islands of Micronesia you can surf, swim, windsurf, play volleyball, and suntan. If you see pictures of them you start dreaming of going. New Zealand, on the other hand, has majestic scenery including fjords, alpine glaciers, volcanoes, lakes, and the ocean. Both New Zealand and Australia are top choices for outdoor adventure in the amazing Pacific.
