It's a scene that could not be happening in any other country. As the sun rises over the ocean, slowly turning the sky purple then orange, kangaroos and wallabies hop around on the sand while I stand there in board shorts and thongs watching them. It's one of many moments I've been having recently that make me question why I haven't done more travel in Australia.
