Welcome once again to my annual comparison of Brisbane's weather in the middle of winter with that of London's in the middle of summer.

Time for another reprint of one of my Australia and New Zealand magazine articles, this one appeared in their September edition.

And that post was written just a few days after Brisbane had recorded its coldest day for 103 years. So, time for an update on that. Here's [...]

If this were a game of football in the World Cup or in any competition, it would be a fantastic match. End to end, as they say. What am I talking about? Yes, my annual midwinter post where I compare Brisbane's weather with that of London where, of course, it's the middle of summer. It's [...]
