The Australian winter is unique. The air is brisk and cold, but the sun shares her rays almost every day.
The beach in winter is welcoming. It's quiet and calm. And there's nothing better than being wrapped up in your biggest wooly jumper, digging your toes into the sand and staring out to where sea meets sky.
Yes, winter here is lovely.
But what of snowflakes and mountains? What of flaming autumn leaves and fur coats?
Today, I travel to winter afar. To Eastern Europe perhaps? Or maybe even Alaska.
