AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Even though I am terrified of heights, I did this once on a Mexican vacation ( after drinking a few margaritas! ). Pehaps it would have been less terrifying with a smiley chute!
