Day 6 pt 2: biergarten
On the way up the mountain, we saw 5 emus (the emu & kangaroo are national emblems bc they can't walk backwards. I love that!) and a dead wombat, which did not look real; it looked like a child-sized teddy bear someone had discarded out of their car window.
Snow Mountain's real adventures begin tomorrow - today we just checked into the hotel & had dinner at the barvarian-themed (which the Barvarians said was spot-on) bar/restaurant. And our tour guide fed us shots of butterscotch schnapps. And I talked politics with an older British couple (who've been more places in the US than I have) and had a great night getting to know my group.
Before I forget, I have to tell teeter: in Germany, they mix beer with sprite & it tastes sweet. I think you'd like it... :)
Today I am so happy & grateful for :
~ a bus tour where I can meet other solo travelers
~ seeing wildlife
~ a nice room with a nice bathroom & cool roommates
