      Hi Liv,

      I live in a strange country called Australia in an even stranger state called New South Wales. About an hour drive from here I can cross into Victoria. I am in winter just like the distant land of Geelong. 🙂

        Hi Ross,

        Thanks for the reply. Yes I agree that Australia is a bit of a weird name but I don’t think New South Wales is a weird name.

        I have been there and I went there earlier in the year. It was great fun and the amount of swimming I did was amazing. I loved it when it rained.

        I was wondering if you would like to leave a comment on my latest post about the movies. In case you were wondering there will be a new post up tomorrow about the Football Clinic I am doing tomorrow with my brother.

        Thanks,
        Liv 😆

          Hello Liv,

          Australia is a little unusual but it comes from a Latin language base. For a long time before European explorers sailed far enough south, people in Europe supposed there must be a large area of land down south otherwise the world wouldn’t be in balance. We know better these days but science and exploration back then wasn’t as advanced.

          The unknown southern land was named, Terra Australis (“South Land” or, in the order of the two words, “Land South”). Australia comes from Australis. Matthew Flinders was an English explorer who first gave Australia it’s name. He decided it was unlikely there would be any significant land further south. It was still many years before Antarctica would be explored.

          I will be visiting your blog shortly. 🙂

            Hi Ross,

            This isn’t really a reply because I didn’t read all of the comment you replied back to me. I am so sorry I just wanted to tell you I have written the post on my blog about the Footy Clinic.

            It would be fantastic if you could have a look read it, tell me what I did wrong or what mistakes I made. http://olivias.global2.vic.edu.au/2013/07/09/football-clinic/

            Got to Gallop,
            Liv 😆 😀 🙂
