I loved reading your post Rita because I was born and lived in Sydney for 30 years. We lived on the lower north shore and I actually taught ballet at Eastwood! Memories of childhood are catching the ferry to Manly for fish and chips during school holidays and of course sailing by the beautiful Opera House (the design was a little controversial at the time but everyone loves it now). Jacarandas are gorgeous and even though I've lived in Australia all my life (now in Brisbane/Gold coast) Perth is still on my bucket list. Thanks for the memories and glad you had a wonderful time. I'm visiting through BBB. Have a great week!

I would love to visit Australia someday. That's one part of the world I haven't been to yet and it sounds wonderful. I wasn't aware of the White Australia policy they used to have. We don't hear about that stuff much here in the US.


Hi Sue,

I didn't know you lived in Australia. I'm glad you enjoyed my article. I loved Australia when I lived there in the late 1960s, and I loved my vacation to Sydney and Perth. The Australian people are so friendly and welcoming. I love Australia. I look forward to reading your blog regularly now that you've joined the Best of Boomer Blogs.



Hi Rebecca,

I certainly would recommend a vacation to Australia. There's so much to see and the people are really friendly. An additional benefit is the seasons are reversed so you can go during the winter and find great sunshine Down Under.
