  2. Sounds like we have a fair bit in common – as we read through your list, we are nodding with agreement for about 90% of it πŸ™‚
    And if you ever get to Australia during the summer, we can go to the cricket match together πŸ™‚
    Great blog – look forward to your future posts! Happy travels!

    • Thank you for stopping by! It’s a pretty ambitious list – I’d be surprised to get through even half of it. And I’m glad you agree with it! πŸ™‚
      I’ve had terrible luck with cricket matches, and I would so love to come to Australia and go with you! Some day hopefully… πŸ™‚ Happy travels to you!
