Happy Australia Day!

May all those Aussies have a great day. Celebrate what’s great!

Australian flag

Australia Day is the official national day of Australia. Celebrated annually on 26 January, the date commemorates the arrival of the First Fleet at Sydney Cove in 1788 and the proclamation at that time of British sovereignty over the eastern seaboard of New Holland.

Wishing I could pop over and join in the fun. But I’ll be celebrating all the great things about Australia here in the Netherlands. I miss your spirit of optimism.
