    I know that no country is perfect; including

    Italy. What is absent in Australia is "Soul". Australians are deficient in soul. The added tradgedy is that most overseas born migrants living in Australia have adopted the "Soulless" soul of Australians. Yes! Italy has economic problems, so does Australia. In Sicily, poor...

    I was born and raised in Sydney in an

    Anglo-Irish family. I lived there till I was in my 20s when I decided to experience living overseas. I wound up spending 12 years overseas and pretty much travelling the world. After a long absence I decided to return to my native country, which turned out to be possibly the...

    My sister returned to Sicily two years ago.

    She loves living in Sicily. Although, the economy is not in the best of shape, nevertheless the pace is slow and the people are very warm and loving. Two qualities that are sadly missing in Australia. I will be joining her at the end of this year. I can't wait to turn my back...

    The ten knife stabs of the sexes in

    Word Of Advice For Newcomers

    It IS decent of newcomers to Australia, like opiated and deadjellyfish before her, to defend a culture in which they are a visitor, and which they don't understand. I can't fault that. It is the right thing to do... if one is unsure about a people, it is best to default to...

    The 'Australian' Hate

    (And Why I hate it) I was born in a really **** part of England. There were robberies, gangs rife, the streets were dangerous and a majority of the muslim people in our town despised us (even though we were BORN there) and so it goes on, and on, and on. Now, I live in sunny WA...

    Pure Denial

    that Australia has the highest rate of drug addiction in the world. Look at people like former afl footballer Ben Cousins. I wonder why? Is it because of loneliness, stress or some other reason or a combination?

    Aussie Psychology.
