    Glad you are enjoying Australia, I recommend heading down to Melbourne. It’s well worth a visit. If you do visit take a drive down the great ocean road.

    Nice post. I’ve been to Australia once. We saw ehidna in wild nature. I said – ” we’ve flown 12 000 km to see this hedgehog” I’d love to visit Aussie again. The steaks there are the best.
