Time to reflect back on 2013. Actually, it’s way past time, I should have reflected on last year sometime in January really, but this is not the first year I’ve been late.
What am I talking about?
It’s time for another of my ‘summing up a full year in a five-minute–ish video’ videos and this one I have excitedly called…
This marks a major departure from tradition for me, previous exciting titles have been:
- Our First Full Year Living In Australia
- Our Second Full Year Living in Australia
- Living in Australia: Our Third Full Year
- Living in Australia: Our Fourth Full Year
- Living in Australia – Our Fifth Year 2012
So this year, I’ve really mixed it up a bit and let my imagination run riot.
So, we’ve been here six years, the honeymoon period is definitely over now and those rose tinted glasses have been put away for so long, I don’t know where they are.
We’ve been here through droughts and floods; two of each I think. We’ve seen bushfires burn down houses and we’ve seen cyclones tear off roofs; fortunately for us though, only on the news. We now know most of the top politicians by name and we understand their policies well enough to know whether to laugh, shake our heads, or do both at the same time.
So what do we think Australia now?
Well, we’re still having a ball; we are loving it and we are, as they say, ‘living the dream’.
I’m not just saying that because it’s what I’m supposed to say on this website, this website is and always has been about “what it’s really like to live in Australia”.
And it still is really great.
If you are thinking of moving here for your kids, to give them a better life, you’ll want to watch this one. Here’s the video…
My thanks to Dano of DanoSongs for the music.
