Proud memories of being an Aussie overseas.

Happy Australia Day to Aussies everywhere.
I hope you have had a terrific day.

This day has brought back memories of being a proud Aussie overseas.....
June 2008 I was very fortunate to be at the World Choir Games in Austria with my g/daughter...Corinne and my daughter ... Heather, marching in the streets of Graz proudly waving our Aussie flags and of course shouting.......



Aussie Aussie Aussie.... OI...OI... OI  

                                It was great to see this Kangaroo cafe too.




Waiting for the medal presentations, hoping our girls are rewarded for all their hard work.

The girls are in the front  (wearing white tops) it was also being broadcast on television in Austria.




Our choir "Cantabile" won 3 gold medals so they did Australia very proud.




         Corinne (the little girl in the centre) with a few friends, we had a fantastic time.


 A once in a life time chance that I will never forget and  to enjoy it with my daughter and g/daughter was very special.
