I think of home and safety because I have lived her since I was born! I have been here my whole life and have never been over seas.

Well cause I live here, I think:
Barbies (You know, BBQ)
Flies and mossies (they are the worst on a trail)
Safety (Australia is my home)
Awesome.

I just feel so lucky to live in Australia. It sounds cool, you have to admit. And its like a little private island. Only the Aussies are on it unless you come from over seas.

In America, you can get the South Americans going to North America and vice versa. Not here, we are one little country.

Except I wish we had celebrity's over here (well more anyway)
