I've got a thing going for Australia lately. I'm sure some of our members could say whether it's really as great as it seems from the outside.
Sydney thinks it is a cosmopolitan world city on the cutting egde but is actually an infrastructure black hole overflowing with impolite bogans who like to glass each other in the face after a night out at the Coogee Bay Hotel.
Other parts are quite lovely.
People from quaint country towns tend to have a rough-around-the-edges charm.
The landscape is unique and quite surreal in some places.
Certainly a lovely place to holiday.
