This is my fourth time in Australia, and the first time I’m experiencing it in a cold season. Cold and often wet. Normally my time in Australia is all about swimming and occassionally trying to surf. But now, only the bravest enter the Pacific Ocean, and only with wetsuits. I don’t have a wetsuit. This is like being locked in the world’s best bakery whilst possessing a wheat allergy. At least the nation’s yoghurt is still terrific, and I’m lactose tolerant.
