Country #1 - Sydney, Australia. In 2011 I was blessed to take a work trip to Sydney as my first international destination. I was super excited! The 2013 expiration of my first passport was fast approaching and it didn’t have one stamp in it!
Australia was a great first country to visit. I went in January which is their summer season so the weather was great! I was thankful that we had a senior management team that didn’t want us to fly all that way and not have a little fun.
I was in Australia on business but I was still able to see the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbor Bridge, Circular Quay, The Three Sisters rock formation, The Blue Mountains and Anz Stadium (host of the 2000 Summer Olympics)! This was the best business trip ever.
