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!
