In 2020 I’m answering a list of 52 journal questions. Read about it here.
Write about the place I call home.
I did think of talking about my house and street, which is the obvious answer, but as I thought about it, the words of a Peter Allen song came to mind:
But no matter how far or how wide I roam
I still call Australia home
I’ve lived in quite a few places in Australia, but most of them have been in the state of Queensland. My current home in Canberra (in the Australian Capital Territory) is the first place I’ve lived outside of my home state.
I’m not a city girl, I love the bush. I find a sense of calm when I’m in the bush – it really is my happy place. So I thought the best way to talk about the place I call home was through pictures.
The photos below are from a day we spent hiking in Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve. We did the Barbarians’ favourite hike that day (note the koala in one of the trees)…
Below are a series of photos from a camping trip we did to Wee Jasper in New South Wales. We camped at Micalong Creek, but walked to where Racecourse Creek (a tributary) joined so we could float the (small) rapids.
Australia really is my home. What place do you call home?
