Top 10 ___: Top Ten Australian Activites to Undertake!

Ayres Rock, Australia: A Kangaroo warning road sign in the desert near Uluru

Welcome to the latest instalment of our most recent blog series Top Tens, which is posting every Sunday, Australian time. Last week I shared my top 10 favourite Robin Williams films, and this week, in light of the tragedy that occurred last week, I’m going to create a blog that is much more buoyant, positive, and hopefully it’ll be a list to make us laugh, that is a bit funny, and doesn’t take itself that seriously.

Things must’ve been pretty weird, or maybe even simple, before the advent of facebook, twitter, or even the internet. Before any of that, there were just the people around your neighbourhood. There was the home TV instead of your personal computer, there was playing sports with friends instead of the Nintendo Wii console, there was cassette tapes, vinyl players and the like, instead of now Spotify, Youtube, mp3 files and iTunes. Before technology, life as we would think, was simpler. Maybe even boring to us, the life our parents and grandparents lived was one where friendships were much easier to form, and much harder to break.
