AND what better way to celebrate this fabulous Australia Day with some new RED OZ stuff!!
I'm a loud and proud Aussie – so of course I'm going to show off all the OZ good bits to inspire you to travel downunder to, and/or explore Australia!! My recent post 'H is for Holiday' showcased some amazing Aussie holiday spots Pilchard and I have visited over the last ~21 years. But I'm sure there are amazing spots in YOUR country too. So my REAL message is – don't put off finding the world's wondrous and fantastic places – wherever they are! Get out and explore – then show the rest of the world what you've found! Wherever you are, cheap holidays are within everyone's grasp – work out what you want to do and make it happen!!
But in the meantime, whether you're an armchair traveller, or just looking for some downunder entertainment and escapism, sit back and enjoy the Australia Day edition of My FavouRED OZ Things! For the full as-Red-Nomad-OZ-intended experience, sing the words to the tune of 'My Favourite Things'* I can't guarantee it'll sound better (it doesn't when I sing!!), but YOU'LL feel great! And that's what counts!!
Happy Australia Day!!
