mag

When I originally wrote this article for Australia and New Zealand magazine, it was highly topical. No prizes for guessing it appeared in their November issue then. Today it seems about three months out of date, but I like to think of it as being nine months ahead of its time. When I was a [...]

Time for another reprint of one of my recent articles for Australia and New Zealand magazine. With impeccable timing, given the cockroach and snake posts of last week, today I'm going to be talking about Australia's 'other' wildlife; the nice stuff.

Australia

As you probably know, I like to reprint my written articles from Australia and New Zealand magazine about a month after they have appeared in the paper and ink version in the UK. I'm still running a bit behind, but today I have the article that appeared in January's edition. I've written a few posts [...]

It's been a while since I posted one of my Australia and New Zealand magazine articles here on this blog. Or, to be more precise, it's almost 2 months since I reprinted my sixth contribution to the magazine which you can read in my post called How to Completely Change Your Life! So, about time [...]
