Blogging A-Z – April Challenge – A is for …..

A is for……Australia

One of the most inspiring Countries that I have ever visited. 
I am of course biased, as I lived in this beautiful Country for a year about 20 years ago, but I have some really special memories of that time, the places I went to, the people I met and my family who looked after me, introduced me to their friends and allowed me to sleep and use the washing machine and plan my next steps. I have visited since then, each trip special in its own way.
Over the course of the coming weeks I shall use the A-Z Challenge to explore my links to this wonderful Country.

    Actually, my theme is dominated by genealogical or historical links, but all. There is mention to a recent, within the last few weeks, that I have itching to blog about, but have paced myself, so it can appear here first!

    Last year I was random in my posts, the common denominator was things or people that meant something to me. This year I have this theme and I have a plan for next year. I just need to remember it!

    I am wondering whether to stand on the A-Z blog sidelines of the cassmob blog doing the football chant to encourage. lol!

    You are biased, but quite rightly so!

    Lucky you! Most of the posts have a genealogical or historical thread to them, but not all of them!

    Julie, I look forward to seeing your stories about Oz. I'm weighing up whether to get involved in this exercise. Thinking about family history places (I have a one track mind). It's that or places I've travelled (sometimes those two come together!) Dunno, but will enjoy yours 🙂

    Having just moved recently to live in Sydney (from the UK), I'm glad I discovered this entry for the A to Z. I'll be following with interest.

    Julie, I look forward to following your A-Z blog challenge about Australia during April. I won't disagree with your statement “One of the most inspiring countries” but I am ofcourse also biased 🙂
