It is Winter on the other side of the world!

You would think that you might be safe with just packing a few sweaters for a trip to Australia. The old boy scout motto of “be prepared” was not with me while preparing to go down under. There were 30 degree days down there with the wind and rain just whippin atcha! Australia is known to be more or less a country of drought. Well, it had been raining for 3 weeks prior to when we got there and rained while we were there. So, they are all greatful for the blessing of rain. Being from the mountains of Arizona, I am accustomed to the cold weather. So the temperature there didn’t bother me too much….until we went on our all day tour to the Blue Mountains. The temperature dropped 20 degrees up there and the wind was intense. But it was a great time and we were able to see a lot.

When I picture Australia, I see the outback. You know, desert. Well, I was wrong. Sydney is a beatiful area with rolling hills of green grass and trees everywhere. Up in the blue mountains it was just like a rain forest. There were vines growing all over the place with ferns, giant fern trees, and vegetation of every kind. There were acres and acres of farms that produced enough fruit and vegetables to supply all of Syndey. They don’t have the need to import much there. I was taken back a bit by how nice it was there.

Sydney, however, is one of the most expensive cities to live in. I believe it comes in second to Los Angeles. If you can get used to driving on the left hand side of the road, I would give it two thumbs up for an area to live in. There is more than enough to do there to keep you busy and has all the amenities that you would need to live comfortably. Sydney rocks!
