The trouble with simple living is that, though it can be joyful, rich, and creative, it isn't simple. ~Doris Janzen Longacre

My Island Home ... Nilo & Des Congradulations

Our best wishes to our Dear friends Nilo and Des, who received their Australian Citizenship today (12th April 2011) This song is for You, enjoy! (They the couple that moved up to Airlie Beach a few months before the Cyclone Yasi hit the East Coast)

Thanks for all the nice comments in the previous post, I do appreciate them all. Australia is a beautiful country, one which I am happy to call Home. Not many of you know we emigrated from South Africa about 18 years ago, but it feels like we have been here all our lives. Australia and it's people have been wonderful to us, that made the transition period alot easier. We arrive here with "very little", no container with our belongings and definitely very little money, but with hard work and a positive attitude it is working out for us.

Kari, click on Short Trips and Holidays, for more photo's and info on beautiful spots to visit in OZ. One day we're planning to head off to Victoria (state) and drive the Great Ocean Road, then on to the Barossa Valley in South Australia. And Adelaide ... The City of Churches ... Capital of South Australia.

Well that's it for tonight
See ya soon


  1. Congrats to Nilo and Des and to you, too. It is wonderful to be where you want to be.

  2. Thank you my dearest friend. It was a lovely emotional day for us both.
