Letter #122 from Australia

Letter #122 comes from Carolyn in Australia.Carolyn is a retired school teacher.She used to teach 5-7 year olds.Her field of teaching was literacy.She worked in the public school system for almost 30 years and loved every minute of it.

Carolyn has been married to her wonderful husband for almost half a century (I think that alone is one great accomplishment :) ) and together they have three children.She says that in 2000 they travelled overseas to England,Scotland and Ireland for a month.In 2009,they went on another adventure;they took their car and caravan to the Mainland,crossing Bass Strait in a large vehicular ferry.They travelled for three months right through the Outback to Uluru,Darwin,Kakadu and many more places.She said that that there was beautiful orange/red soil,amazing wildlife and a great contrast of scenery.This year their adventures include visiting Northeastern Australia-Queensland,for 3-4 months.It sounds like Carolyn is living her dream life of travelling the country.

She also says that her state,Tasmania,is Australia's smallest state and is at it's southern most tip.Their capital,Hobart,has about 300,000 people,while the entire population of Tasmania has only 500,000 people.They also have a small,heritage listed,wilderness area in their state,which generates a lot of tourism,as do their lakes,beaches,and convict areas.

Carolyn's hobbies include reading,gardening and crafts.Thanks Carolyn for your lovely letter,which can be seen below:
