Our A – Z of Australia

Vegemite - very Australian

Pip (not her real name but she is shy 😆 ), over at Piglet in Portugal is doing something we think could be fun.  Pip is writing “My A – Z of Portugal“, including both the good and the perhaps not so good.  Pip suggested to me, when I commented it seemed like a great idea:

Hi Robyn,
What about an A-Z of what your family discover or feel about Australia?
There is no time limit and a challenge which will evolve!

We have a page,  Australia in Pictures, but this is a way we can add more about Australia, a country we do love dearly!  The pictures will stay as they are, but under a new menu!

I gather more writers are going to take up the idea: A – Z of the Dominican Republic is one that may be on board and maybe also Poland.   Late news just in: Aisha, a British ex-pat in Canada is also joining!  Flamingo Dancer was pleased to see Australia would be covered and Sami has already started on Australia too!  Sami’s and ours will be a little different, as most of ours will be from my husband’s and my children’s perspectives, not mine.

Let us all keep connected as we learn and share a little more about our beautiful world!  Travelling from our armchairs!

Now, off to take a family vote on what “A” should be about!

  6. ‘My personal A~Z of…’

    As one of the “three musketeers” helping to set up this project, I thought it might be useful to set up a ‘hub page’ about ‘My Personal A ~ Z of…’ where we can all upload our country and blog details – and then add our A ~ Z posts. You can find this ‘hub page’ at and you can find the links to the ‘List of Countries’ page and the ‘List of Blog Posts’ page via these links. Or just click on my name above and it will take you to the web-site – you will see the tab on the top for ‘My Personal A ~ Z’

    I have added you to the list – please let me know if any details are incorrect … and feel free to add the links to these pages to your blog and let everyone know – the more the merrier!
    Please add a comment to any of the pages to have your details added or changed – and then please add your Blog Posts as you write them – you will also find this a useful place to find other Blog Posts for you to link to and enjoy reading. I’m happy to create a free jpeg logo for anyone that wants one for their country’s flag – or just make up your own!

    This is a fab idea – thanks to Julie Dawn Fox for starting it all – let’s all link up and share each other’s blogs – and hope you all enjoy the ride!

    Love Alyson


  7. This is such an interesting challenge. I am sure you will discover so much you didn’t know about Australia by the time you reach Z.


    • I’m not sure I will, but I hope others do! Mind you, as I didn’t go to school here (except for Year 12 as an adult and university) I really never studied Australian history or geography, so you may well be right! I have travelled around fairly extensively, so I do know a reasonable amount!


  8. Wonderful! Maybe I’ll do the A to Z of the Sunshine State!


    • Your Sunshine State or ours? 😉 Queensland is ours – although whenever I go there it rains!

      Please do join! There is no real time line set, and there seems to be a real global flavour to it so far!

  10. Wow, a big thank you to you and your family for joining Piglet’s A-Z Global challenge. 🙂
    thanks Gang!


    • You are welcome! I think it is a great idea! As you said, there is no time limit or anything and we can add to it as time permits or adventures take place.

      One question – do we have to do the alphabet in order? 😆


We love to hear your thoughts!
