    Where many flocked to the cities for new years I was over it. I was over people, over the news, over hearing about social distancing and over nearly a year of lockdown with 5km travel restrictions.

    So I took off to the bush, I have family and friends in regional Vic. Where the properties go as far as the eyes can see. There are an odd neighbour here and there but for me to hear them, I can't. Lol

    The one distinctive characteristic of Australia is our soil. Much like many places across the globe where soil it brown, here it is red. Of course hundred of years of development and occupancy in cities has turned the soil brown so you can't see it anymore in the cities.

    When the Dutch first arrived they kept sailing along due to the colour of the soil. They thought they had found Hell.

    When the English colonised they thought the soil was useless. As our soil isn't firm, well it can be and there is also alot of clay. But from first steps on the soil with barefoot the ground is soft, almost sandy.

    Turns out, there is nothing wrong with our soil, quite the opposite. The red in the soil is due to the high levels of iron ore in our ground. It is visible. Pretty much rust.

    The red tinge in our soil is what's given Australia its economic windfall of iron ore exports. We've got plenty of it here, as well as plutonium. I think we sell some plutonium to India, not sure.

    But sit back and enjoy my new years view of where I am this year. Away from people, away from masks, away from news.

    Let me know what you think, is Australia a country you'd like to visit?

    By the way, I'm about 7 - 8 hrs away from Melbourne, 3 minutes and I'd be in NSW and maybe about 30 - 45mins drive I'd be in rural South Australia.

    There is also an endless supply of wine and fresh fruit and vegetables as this area is a food bowl. Most the food and wine made here is exported so many Aussies don't get a taste of the beautiful tasting food grown in red soil. But no doubt you all would.

    And the best thing about this area? COVID Free and any 5km restriction is more like 105km. Farms out here are huge!
