The perfect summer season meals is …
Summer season seafood is simply nice; prawns, oysters, fish. We’re massively privileged in Australia to have such range of excellent, recent meals, however the Australian seafood custom is unbeatable.
Is there a scent that defines summer season?
The flowering jasmine vine on my storage wall. Wealthy, unique, nearly overwhelming, that scent lifts me someplace wonderful.
My favorite summer season track is…
Sounds of Then (That is Australia) by GANGgajang. It captures the quintessential Australian expertise, particularly within the northern Australian warmth – “out on the patio we’d sit, and the humidity we’d breathe. We’d watch the lightning crack over cane fields…” – it is extremely evocative of my pre-Melbourne life in far northern Australia, first in far-north Queensland, then the Northern Territory.
The worst factor about summer season is …
Sunburn. And it could actually occur so rapidly – in a single scorching hour on a summer season afternoon. No extra sun-baking in the hunt for a tan for me, and hats on within the backyard. Keep solar protected!
Listening to the radio commentary of the Boxing Day Check match. In a pleasant irony, maybe the most effective half is having fun with the ABC commentators make one thing fascinating and entertaining out of occasions when not a lot is occurring. Broadcasting artwork at its finest.
