It’s mainly in sport, which is most obvious with the Bledisloe Cup; the annual rugby league battle between the Wallabies and the All Blacks. Australia normally comes off second best in that one, to much gnashing of teeth here […]

‘UK Set To Be Hotter Than Australia This Weekend’ Yeah, right. The sub-headline above has not been written by me, I’ve copied it from a UK tabloid who has been running with this story leading up to this weekend. Being a born and bred Brit, I like to keep up with the news in the […]

Could this be your New Year’s resolution for 2019? In January 2006 my wife and I decided that we wanted to move to Australia, so that was our New Year’s resolution back then. By 14 November 2007 we had landed in Brisbane with our daughter, who was just three and a half years old at […]
