I learned some new information about the fruits gown on the farm, much of which are readily available to us in Australia, so any day where you learn something new is a good day right? In case you haven't read it anywhere else, get Coconuts, lots of them....they cure everything! Alzheimers', Cancer, Diabetes, Eczema, wind, and if you ...

Swimming across, a light entered into view. Getting to the top, we walked out with hunched backs towards the light. The glamorous ending to our caving adventure was an irrigation system, which required shimmying up through thick, rusted metal bars. A large pool of water lay before us. We made it! The walk ...
