Oh, wow! That is beautiful! Not sure how you were able to leave! How does it compare to where you live now? How long were you there? What are the big differences between Australia and the USA? Which place do you like better? Sorry for all the questions! You seriously have such an interesting life. I pray dh gets transferred somewhere really neat and pretty to live!

I just love the ocean!

I definitely love the USA and prefer it to Australia. Australia is a gorgeous country but, for me, the people lack warmth. It could be because I lived in the suburb of a big city; not sure if rural areas are any better but from what I have heard they are not much better. I live in a small town here (although it's the capital city) and I love it. I hate that there is nothing much to do with kids and we have so few parks but I love having time to spend with my family which living in a city didn't afford me in Australia. In terms of race relations, Australia also still has a huge way to go although I know things are far from perfect here. For example, I could count on my fingers the number of times I saw an Aboriginal and most of the ones I saw were not in good conditions. I think for me it just boils down to the people factor. I am a peoples' person and I could not deal with the coldness (not hostility) of most of the aussies I met. I also felt that their parenting was a bit detached for me and that translated into how childcare centers and schools were run. We were paying $75 per day for dd1's school and they won't even warm her food or any student's food. They had the poor kids eating cold food everyday! The 18 months I spent there definitely made me realize that I love love love the US:).

I definitely would like to live somewhere where the people are multicultural. I wouldn't want to feel like the odd one out, being mixed. Although, I think I would be okay if they were not racist. I also like to live where the people are friendly and warm.

That's so sad that they wouldn't warm her food... especially at that price per day! That's high!

If I could, I would move to a new place every few years until I found somewhere I just absolutely LOVED and couldn't leave. I am pretty adventurous.

I hope you can find some more parks where you live, now. :)

I loved looking at those pics. I don't remember seeing the park/beach ones before but I think you shared pictures of the city once. That playground looks amazing!! What a beautiful setting. :)
