Well, here I am in Australia. We stay in Sydney at the moment, which is located in the south- east. It’s just great! There are so many things to do. It has got night-clubs, restaurants, and there are some fascinating tourist attractions. I took a group to the Sydney Harbour Bridge today, which was fantastic, because you could enjoy some great views. I’ve got a great group- they were enjoying the trip, and I think they like me as well. Tomorrow we are flying to Alice Springs and then to Ayers Rock, which is lying in the centre of Australia. The weather is very hot there. You can do so much in this wonderful country. Our brochure is right. Australia offers everything under the sun!
