  10. 10. Reflections • Australia is huge – Australia = 2x Europe – Tasmania much bigger than Switzerland • 50+ sun blocker and a hat is needed – Australian Xmas/summer very warm – I got burned once. That hurts. • Visiting/staying at local friends was the best – Sydney alone was not as good as, Canberra & Melbourne together with old & new friends!
