good for this explanation, though. I hope it has many little koalas to tell about this adventure...
I hope so, too. and I hope it will
well after all it has been through. I always worry about the animals in bushfires. They have nowhere to go. When I used to live in a sugar cane town, they would set fire to the cane to burn off all the leaves, prior to harvesting it. I have seen poor little pademelons (like little kangaroos) badly burned and trying to escape. Snakes are always burned to death in those fires, and while you might not like them, it's still a cruel way to go. I'm in another sugar cane town now, but they do a lot of green harvesting these days. However, we had the "black snow" - sugar cane ash from burning - one day last week, and it brought back memories. I used to live across the street from cane fields in the other town, but that was many years ago.
is always awful and I hope those who cause it are the first who have to burn - with all their possessions. I feel no mercy even if it goes down to a thoughtlessly thrown away cigarette...
our bushlands are
with fire in summer. most are caused by natural things, though, like lightning.
nature can be quite cruel, too. But
would be very boring if everything was predictable...
I wouldn't mind some predictability, but then I'm old, and I think it's
to avoid the crises.
Oh, as our gallery shows (I think), I'm not the Indiana Jones-type of person, too, and
a rather ordinary and stressless life quite pleasant as well.
of getting out into the real country and just wandering through fields and soaking up nature. I haven't done that in a long time, though. Maybe soon!
just do it. I'm sure you'll
lots of natural marvels to enjoy. We live right near the forest for two years now and still love it like on the first day.
and European forests are so pretty, too.
you, Australia has a beauty all its own. I think all countries have great natural beauty.
that's one of the
wonders, that great natural diversity of shapes and colours - always amazing... nature is a great artist...
your favourite and most beautiful place (that you have visited)
That is not easy to decide. I think this waterfall in norway
would be among my favourites. It was so impressively vivid and loud (hard to capture with a photo) I suppose it is quite reasonable that some of the larger waterfalls have achieved quite a lot of
Wow! That's just wonderful. I'd love to visit Europe and all the amazing places there. I don't think I will ever get there. My sisters have been all over a number of times. My sister is married to a Dutchman, and she loves the Netherlands. The other is married to a British man, and they have visited England a lot as well.
There are a lot of places in my state that have great natural beauty - the Great Barrier Reef, for example - but i haven't been to visit a lot of them. One area - around the Queensland, New South Wales border - is just a jewel. There is amazing scenery over several hundred miles, and so much beauty. There is a little town called Murwillumbah, and it is stunning. I'm putting a link to the Tweed Coast, which is just a short distance north of there, and also lovely. The images are small, but you get the idea. When I lived in Brisbane, I used to drive down there for a break and to soak up the beauty.
One day when I'm feeling fit, I'll take my camera down to the beaches near here. It's very pretty, and Fraser Island is nearby, too.
No two places are the
and there are so many styles of beauty.
Thanks for the link, the images give a good impression. I have never before heard of Murwillumbah, but it really looks amazing. We should take every opportunity to use our cameras to fetch such sights. I feel sad when I hear that in in the last 100 years great natural areal (like the rain forest) have been destroyed forever, which really is a shame. It should be an obligation to
nature because with a fast growing population on earth mankind absolutely depends on some fresh air to breathe and something to eat... So we better be nice to our planet. amen.
Christa and I don't think about flying to other continents either. I couldn't sit still that long in a plane. Flying to London once in a while is something I enjoy quite a lot. That city is very atmospheric and it's not too far away. I think I may go there again next year, we'll see...
I think it's the historical places that I would like to see as well. I would love to visit Egypt and other ancient sites. The places to explore are
historical places which still breathe the athmosphe of the

Michael, I am too claustrophobic to ever do that.
you would need lots of
to forget the claustrophobia, if you could cope with the taste of that wine at all.
yes. that's sensible. get drunk then crawl underground. are you out of your mind??!! no, I'll hold the other end of the
while you do it.
There is not even a rope, this is
for masses of tourists crawling around in groups under our hills and in all those caves... most of them have found out again as far as I've heard.
I get cold shivers even contemplating it!
you won't find me burrowing underground. I'm not claustrophobic in lifts or anything, just in places where I could get trapped. Oh, and I think if I had to have a full body MRI, I might have a bit of a panic attack being shoved into the machine.
Those MRIs are very narrow and very noisy even for those who don't hear very well (like me). I have observed that my stomach doesn't like to go upwards in lifts with some high speed and that I also have a slight fear of hights. It is not too pleasant for me to stand on a tower and look straight down over the balustrade. But underground... no problem...
at all, even if the guides in the caves turn off the lights to demonstrate the complete, pure darkness surrounding us (which is a must on all of these tours obviously).
