March 29 2012 Australia Newsletter
With the wonders of technology, I have been able to continue with my writing and newsletters for the Australia site, and I’ve got lots to pass onto you following our recent travels. To that end, I will be writing a number of articles that cover my experiences, together with photos and links to interesting stuff that we discovered along the way. I’ll keep you posted about those articles through this weekly newsletter.
Last Sunday I posted my first fun Aussie cultural piece – on the wonderful poem titled “The Dying Stockman”. We learnt this poem in primary school and it has remained one of my favourites. Here’s the link to that article: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art15337.asp
The forum has been very chatty in my absence and please don’t think I haven’t been interested. I was unable to access the forum whilst I was travelling. I’ll be endeavouring to add my say asap. Here’s the forum: http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php/forums/315/1/Australia
