Australia - 'the lucky country' is a phrase that has been used to describe all the good things about our country, and while I have spent the past year traveling to numerous countries, including Japan, Britain, Spain, Italy, Turkey and Thailand, I have had the opportunity to realise just how lucky we Australians are. The fact that we can drink water straight from the tap and have a good relationship with our international neighbours are a few things to say the least. We have the freedom to travel interstate and still get along with our fellow countrymen. We have the freedom to vote, we promote multiculturalism and encourage individuality. And we have the freedom to have our say. So many of these things we take for granted and our privileges are often abused but we have adopted the phrase 'laid back', which shows in both our culture and our language, however, I am yet to meet someone that has something bad to say about our people or our nation. Apparently we leave a good impression all over the world. And that is something to be proud of. ♥
Happy Australia Day! ☆
