Finally this blog is online. I am happy!

I have moved to Downunder more than 1 year ago and very soon I understand that I really like this country. I like the nature, climate and Australian lifestyle. That is why I would like to write down a bit about my travelling experience and my impressions about that as well as about nice places around Australia (Downunder).

I will post here a stories about my and my family travelling across Australia, picture and a lot of other different stuff which I hope will be interesting for readers. We will see ;)

Hope you will find something interesting here for youself and leave your comments and opinions. Welcome!
