I have to pay attention that a fly doesn't get into my mouth because it's still open ! I never realized that Australia was THAT big that all European countries could fit in there ! That's a VERY interesting map ! I saved it too and will send it to my son, who visited Australia 4 years ago !

That puts the world into perspective doesn't it.

oh wow. I had no idea! I'd love to see the US and Australia compared, too, to give me even more understanding.

A very good way to show how big and long and wide Australia actually is. I mean we are talking about 4 time zone (the same as USA) and I remember from my last visit: It took some time to fly from Perth to Sidney!

Btw: I really like your new template - congrats!

Wishing you a great week ahead :-)

haha, that really does put things in perspective...

Canada and Australia really have so much in common. We're just at opposite ends of the climate spectrum. I'm gonna try and fit Europe in the Canadian map too hehe...

Goodness! I never realised... or should I say.. never stopped to think about it.

I adore your 'Mitzy'... my 'Floyd' likes to sit on my printer and eat all the paper coming out.. lol

I hope you're happy...I've just spent 10 minutes playing with that black cat on your sidebar!!! lol Too cute!

Wow, that map certainly does put into perspective just how huge Australia is...so I guess it's not just a "hop and a skip" to many of the places! lol

I so loved the pictures of Mitzi attacking your keyboard! lol She must be bringing so much fun to your life...if only they could stay that age:-) xoxo
