Never heard of the original people? they are called the aboriginees in Australia. Like the Indians or red skins in America. Is it clear for you now what the aboroginees are?

What is your first thought when you think of Australia? The year I spent there 25(!) years ago

What do you like more? exotic animals or the wild Australian nature? Tough question - I was lucky enough to witness so many different animals in the wild, from Kangaroos and Koalas to Sharks and Echidnas (even my Aussie friends were jealous that I'd come across the latter). But I went to so many incredible different environments too - the Flinders Ranges in outback South Australia, the Blue Mountains in NSW, the Great Barrier Reef off Queensland.......to me they go hand in hand.

Which city would you like to visit (again), if you can? Probably Adelaide. It had a much more picturesque and "colonial" vibe about it, as opposed to Sydney and Melbourne which are big modern cities.

Are you interest in to meet the aboriginees? Sadly most of the ones I met were drunks on the streets of Sydney...

Great Barrier Reef or Uluru, what do you like more to discover? Barrier Reef. I have a picture of me after I'd spent the morning snorkelling there, the smile on my face is a million miles wide. Just teeming with all kinds of exotic marine life.
What is your first thought when you think of Australia?
The dreadful flight time.

What do you like more? exotic animals or the wild Australian nature?
Tough question. I can't choose.

Which city would you like to visit (again), if you can?
I haven't been to Australia. I would love to visit Sydney.

Are you interest in to meet the aboriginees?
I guess so.

Great Barrier Reef or Uluru, what do you like more to discover?

Great Barrier Reef.
What is your first thought when you think of Australia?
The suspicious disappearance and presumed murder of Peter Falconio.

What do you like more? exotic animals or the wild Australian nature?
I like seeing some exotic animals- at a distance.
Particularly kangeroos, koalas and dingos.

Which city would you like to visit (again), if you can?
I don't want to visit Australia.
The Gold Coast has some very beautiful views and would be a very good place to photograph.

Are you interest in to meet the aboriginees?
No.

Great Barrier Reef or Uluru, what do you like more to discover?
I'm not interested in either of them.

Currently in Melbourne Australia,
Just over 23 hours flight from Glasgow.
Beautiful place and weather is amazing ( some rain but still been around 28 degrees in the day and about 17 degrees at nighttime).

Lovely walks especially around Melbourne park home of the MCC, Australia open tennis championships, Albert park overlap Melbourne park ( home of the F1 racing) Amii park - home of Melbourne city and Melbourne victory football teams and also used with few other teams.
Beach is amazing at St Kilda.

Food and entertainment been fabulous.

11 hours ahead of UK at present until clocks change in later in the year then it drops down to 9 hours until clocks change again in October.

You'll certainly love the Gold Coast as recommended visiting.

Sounds like that you really have been there so far, haven't you?

23 hours in one go, so non-stop without an intermediate stop? that is really long! so you have travelled to Australia to see the Australian Open?

No it was about 7 hours flight to Dubai, then a two hour wait over until I got connection flight to Melbourne - that's another 14 hours flying time.

Long flight as you said.

No I haven't travelled to Australia for the Australian open ( couldn't get a ticket as was sold out) as visiting my sister who works there. Seen the football on Thursday and Friday at Amii park.

My first thought is of family, which is also why I won't go over there until I'm older and they're mostly dead.
