feral(or Neil) is a member from Australia . He has been a member for over 3 years (1386 days).
I live in the village of Nericon, ten kilometres from the town of Griffith. Griffith is an irrigation town on the edge of the dry country, if we go west it rapidly gets very remote.
I like to do outdoor things. I have always liked cycling, for fitness and fun and holiday. I used to run and now I am the organiser for the local running club (www.griffithferals.org.au) and I tell everyone else where to run, mostly I walk. Our runners start off different times and finish in a bunch.
When I was younger I spent two years living and working and travelling in southern Africa, and also visited Europe and Scandanavia. I loved it. I met nice people everywhere, and it taught me that no matter how much different we are, we are also the same.
But people would ask me about Australia, and I realised then that I did not know very much at all. Now I have seen most of Australia, and I finally realised why people want to visit. I always thought 'there is nothing here' but of course the vast interior is one of the best things we have. It seems empty, but when you look close there is so much to see.
The card I would most like?? I can't say, because the best one is so unexpected, and what is written on the back can outshine the front. Give me a pleasant surprise. I like to hear the little things about life in other countries, the little things that you don't get on radio or television - tell me something I don't know.
Too hot - too many days over 40°C - please send snow!!
Tell me your fave place to eat in your town. What type of food do they offer? What is your fave dish?
