My parents immigrated to Australia in 1982, when I was just 18 months old. We stayed for 6 years, until we reluctantly left the Southern Hemisphere and headed back to good old Germany.
I like to attribute many inches of my 6-foot height to the sun, the seafood & running around barefoot on the warm earth of Australia :-)
I won't be able to build many tips on Australia, as I was a child and my parents were the ones choosing on where to go, what to do, and had the camera and memory to recall it all! Secondly, and sadly, I haven't been back to Australia since we left, so surely Sydney and its suburbs have changed beyond recognition for me.
But I wanted to share some of my thoughts & feelings about
this wonderful place that was our "home away from home" from 1982 - 1988.
I couldn't have imagined a better childhood for myself! It was brilliant, and I miss it every day.
26th January 1988
Celebrating 200 Years!
(The tall one is me... obviously :-)
