These pictures have hung around for a long time and here is the time to use them. Australia is a big place, so to fly from one side to the other as we did is a four hour flight. From Melbourne in the south east to the west and Perth, and back is almost like an overseas holiday.
Australia is like a strange doughnut, with a very thin dough, half of which is missing, and a huge hole in the middle where very few live. We cling to our seaside shores.
