Crocodile lunch among eucalyptus trees

From Russia to Australia fly eighteen hours, with two transfers. This is if you choose a shortened route – through Tokyo. And if you get to the fifth continent via Amsterdam or Cairo (some Moscow travel agencies offer such flight options), then not a day is enough to reach Australian land. But having stood the test of many hours of flight, the tourist will undoubtedly be rewarded. Australia is, without any exaggeration, a unique country, with a completely unique wildlife, but at the same time very rich, extremely well-maintained and completely calm.

And they are forced to come up with more or less less crowded holiday destinations so that when they arrive at the resort with a loved one, they will not be the target of ridicule and indelicate remarks. Gays and lesbians have long chosen the Hemingway Key West in the States, the island of Mykonos in Greece. Not that heterosexuals were not allowed there, but homosexuals feel freer there.

Education in Australia – not just for Aboriginal people (part 1)

Russian students have recently discovered Australian education. But last year, about a hundred Russians left to study in Australia, and over thirty in the first four months of this year. Schools, colleges, universities in Australia are attractive not only because they are in one of the most exotic countries on the planet. Just an Australian education, which, by the way, is built like the British, is really appreciated all over the world.

The academic year in Australian schools begins in February, and in universities in March. So if you want to start studying next year, now is the time to start correspondence and prepare for admission.

Private schools are more expensive but better Continue reading
