Happy Australia Day


Although this time of the year can be a cold one especially if you’re in the UK but if you’re Australian, January 26th is a special day. It’s Australia Day. The day when all my Aussie friends would get together to celebrate the national day of Australia. Celebrated annually on 26 January, the date commemorates the arrival of the First Fleet at Sydney Cove, New South Wales in 1788 and the proclamation at that time of British sovereignty over the eastern seaboard of Australia.

Australian’s the world over would celebrate with outdoor concerts, community barbecues, sports competitions, festivals and fireworks.
I’m not Australian but have met loads of amazing friends through travels and living in Central London who are. They may not be with me in London today but a big cheer to all of them from me in West London. Hope you all have a great one!
