5 Facts About Darwin Australia

Today Ryan is on a plane to Darwin.  He is going to be gone for a long weekend on a scouting/vision trip with some of our other co-workers.  I’m not going with him for a few reasons but mainly I just finished this semester (all three final assignments done and submitted!) and I need a break.  I’ve also been experiencing some gallbladder pain (more on the scheduled surgery later).  So Ryan headed to Darwin without me but it should be a great trip and he gets to experience another part of Australia.

Here are 5 facts about Darwin and Ryan has promised an Instagram picture a day while he’s gone so follow him @lpturntable for a taste of his experiences.Screen Shot 2017-06-08 at 4.55.38 PM
