For as long as I could remember, I had dreamed of visiting Australia - the land 'down under'... I desperately wanted to go, I had friends who lived there whom I could visit, and there was so much I wanted to see and do.
Finally, in 1995, I had a decision to make: buy myself a house, or go to Australia. It was a no-brainer... Australia won - the house could wait.
In September 1995, I flew to Brisbane. Woohoo! What an adventure!
More when I have time to type it up! :-)
