Issue 12

When you hear stories about people travelling around the world all alone, you're wondering how they are coping with the stress of the unknown, whether people or places.

But then what would you say about a teenager who sailed around the world solo and unassisted? This is what Jessica Watson, a 16 year old Aussie girl, did from October 2009 to May 2010.

It is an amazing experience. It would be amazing for anyone who had the courage, confidence and enthusiasm to set off on such an adventure.

A voyage around the world is really something to test the will power, knowledge and abilities of any adult, let alone of a teenager. She showed passion, enthusiasm, dedication, resolve and optimism. And she succeeded.

The Sydney Opera house forecourt was packed with tens of thousands of people who waited hours on end for her to sail into the Sydney harbour on May 15. Everyone loves a hero.

Map of Sydney Australia

Finding a spot on a map of a city as big as Sydney can be difficult when you are not familiar with it. This map shows only the centre and the suburbs around it.

Information about life in a country always involves food. So why not take some pictures of the dishes we cook and share the recipes?

That's what we did in the Australian Fish Recipes and Prawn Recipes pages.

Do you like to cook and have a good recipe? Share it with us and tell your friends where to find it. Click here to write your own recipe.

That's all for now. We'll be adding more pages about Australia, life in Sydney and tips on how to make the most of it.

Until then, all the best,
