Thank you so much for sharing these- they are truly amazing....And nice we get to meet the Copilot....We will all fly with you anytime....( you would have peanuts on your flight right?)

Sue Woo said...

Can I bring my shampoo? Love those pics!

Liliana said...

Divajood!!! I found you again. Great pictures! You dont have a link at Peace Train?

Makes me wistful about travel. I'm always antsy to go. Anywhere. Somewhere other than where I am.

DivaJood said...

E4E, peanuts and water. Absolutely. Oh, and at a high school reunion ten years ago, a guy ran up to me and said I look the same as I did in kindergarten only taller. (Graduated HS in 1966.)

Sue Woo, of course. Shampoo, Starbucks, cosmetics. The koala had a small joey, less than three months old. He kept poking his head out but I could not seem to get his picture.

liliana, how do I do a link at Peace Train? I sometimes have trouble getting into the site.

Mary said...

Amazing photos. What a lucky girl you are.

robin andrea said...

Wow. What a spectacular journey. Love your photos. And, I can't believe it, but is that you? What a warm and beautiful smile on such a shayna punim!

Oh boy, am I glad I visited you today and got to see those fantastic photos. I just love them!

Tina said...

Oh Diva... now I know where your daughter and Beanie get their gorgeous curls and smiles. And I just want to walk on that lovely beach and climb into that tree and squeeze that koala... although methinks as a mother, she might not appreciate that hug.

Wow! Great photos. I can just imagine what an awesome trip it would have been!

DivaJood said...

Mary, thanks! I am in the right job for a travel addict.

Robin Andrea, I am going to send you another photo for your Saturday photo listing. Thanks!

POP, thank you. I took about 150, and deleted most of them.

Tina, all the women in my family look alike. All my cousins, their daughters - it's sort of freaky at times. And koalas actually have unpleasant dispositions because they're always tired.

OWL, it was a great trip.

I love Koalas!

DivaJood said...

Sumo, koalas love you!

Helen Wheels said...

I love Koalas, esp. because they are grumpy. Somehow, I'm attracted to the more crumudgeonly of the animal kingdom. what a great pic! I'd have of course loved to see the Joey, but I suppose I can take a lil' jaunt over to www.cuteoverload.com to make up for it.

Great pic of you, copilot!! Great pics in general. What a fantastic trip that must've been. Did you get to see the Great barrier Reef? One of my dreams is to snorkel there. I have to practice a lot first, though :)

Alicia said...

Yay! Great pics! Glad you're back, but glad you had such a great trip. Koalas are just too damn cute.

Those aerial photos are incredible. I love the photo of you, now I feel like I really know you better. Man, is that water blue or what? Better go hop on a plane to Australia, call you in a few weeks!

Helen, I wish that Qantas would still use the Sydney Koala ads, but Sydney died. They are just such characters, Koalas. This island is part of the Great Barrier Reef - it's gorgeous.

Alicia, it was a good trip. Not my favorite, because of Steve Irwin's death, but still.

Karena, all the other agents were afraid of me being co-pilot; and Mr. Pilot was awfully damn cute.
