Aussie, Actually Feb 1, 2012
Lois Nicholls discovers the grass is not always greener on the other side when she emigrates to Australia with her young family. While she speaks the same language she often experiences a cultural divide and lack of understanding by locals. The scorching heat is unbearable and a homesick fog also threatens to derail her notion of a romantic adventure in a foreign land. This is a humorous, frank account of what it's really like to leave all that is familiar and loved to start a new life down under.
