I think thatīs the only negative point about Australia...To travel to the beautiful Europe you have to pay a lot (i guess). To Asia must be cheaper but like Asia donīt attract me so much iīm with my portuguese mate (PortoNuts) and iīll just stay there for holidays...well a LONG, LONG holidays ...and expensive or maybe live and work there for a couple of years...that would be perfection

Thanks for the wonderful pics, keep them coming and well...enjoy the Spring!

Excellent pictures.

I think Australia has it all yep were not a couple of hours from Europe or America but in this day and age one gets on a plane has a sleep and boom ya there. What makes Australia great is that we have all the western worlds great freedoms and more, defintely the lucky country and if ya dont visit it well ya just missed out.

Flight travel should be getting cheaper but instead keeps getting more and more expensive ... the bastards I want to travel non stop. You should of living in Oz for a couple of years, that will be a great experience and then you can hop over to New Zealand for a couple of weeks. The 2 countries are currently busy with a deal that will make it easier to travel between the two, just like domestic flights. I am all for that

Thanks for the compliment and the comment

Thanks mate, yeah, we should all try to travel and broaden our experiences as much as we can. If only money grew on trees

You are quite right, it is only a couple of hours flight and you are in Rarotonga, Fiji, Samoa and\or New Zealand

Really nice office buildings.

I loved the storm. It was a chance to snap some wonderful shots.

Ah, Sydney, I forgot to say that I also love Australia because it's probably the only place in the world that has the most dangerous species all together, from sharks, to crocodiles, spiders, snakes, ants,. (I was watching a programme about Australia's biodiversity, so it stroke my mind).

The red dust is supposed to hit New Zealand later today but it won't be as spectacular .... as for dangerous animals and things you won't like New Zealand then, we have no poisonous and dangerous animals/insects/reptiles here Only cute little things like the Kiwi bird.
