Sorry for all the typos tonight, I'm on a tablet. Anyway it just dawned on me that an anniversary passed a few days ago. I traded city life and the stars and stripes for country life and the southern cross. Traded a culture of fear for a culture of mates and beers. It's been ten years.
We passed ten years in Catalunya a couple of months ago. Though country life is a struggle, I'm not trading it either.

You forgot to mention all the wild and lethal animals without which life in Australia wouldn't really be life in Australia!

The lethal animals keep you on your toes and prevent you from ever becoming complacent. It's a good thing to not become complacent.
