10 Years in Australia!

Well today is the 10 year anniversary of when I moved to Australia for the first time.

Ten years ago today, a young and innocent, Marky Mark and his high school mate Alex Evans jumped on a plane and moved to Melbourne to live with Ange and Wayne...

Who could have seen the crazy adventures that laid ahead of me?

I'd been to Melbourne 6 months earlier to spend New Years with Wayne, my old flat mate and high school friend, and his girl friend Angela Westerby (now Angela McKellar). I loved it so much that I decided I wanted to live there. Much to Ange's horror Wayne invited Alex and I to move over and live with them... Well it didn't turn out too bad as now Ange is one of my best friends!

It has been a fantastic 10 years and I've experienced things that not many people ever experience in 10 life times. The only downside is that I've spent ten years away from my family. Lets hope in the next ten years we all spend more time crossing the Tasman. We'll have to plant a lot of trees to become carbon neutral...

Heres to the last ten and heres to the next ten!
