Introduction

Top of Form When we first arrived in Western Australia, I sensed a whole new world and environment. It seemed kind of foreign to me, as I was used to the busy streets of Melbourne. It seemed as though I had just arrived in Africa. Along the dusty sand I witnessed a one legged man hitting his dog with his crutches, my two children were beside themselves with laughter when the man eventually fell over. To keep my children alert of the sun I told them a few white lies about a disease called "boiling brain." It was a huge success as their na�ve little minds could not comprehend that I was trying to keep them out of the sun. My sun hard a hard time at school during the first few days as he was wearing sandals. The school children and the teacher were not used to seeing people wearing shoes to school and used it as an opportunity to poke fun at my poor sun. ...read more.

Middle

Being high up in the Dunlop family has its perks. I get to host plenty of celebrities and sports stars who use Dunlop products such as tennis players and race car drivers. The hot weather over here in the west is something I find will be easy to adjust to. As long as I have my job with the Dunlop Company and sales are high, there are no complaints from my part of the shift. My family seems to be warming up to the idea of Western Australia being our new home. The kids seem to be enjoying themselves and the wife seems more accustomed to the place. I cannot wait to see where Dunlop takes me and my family down the track. At the moment life could not get any sweeter. As long as I have my job with Dunlop and sales are excelling, I couldn't be any happier with the new choice of home. This place seems really strange compared to our old home in Melbourne. ...read more.

Conclusion

I love the hot weather and the sandy beaches. I love that it is quieter out here than it was in Melbourne. And I love that I can spend most of my days in the cool refreshing ocean, something in which I could not do often in Melbourne. The most exciting part about dad working with the Dunlop Company is the exciting people we get to meet. Meeting celebrities and sports stars is one of the privileges in which I receive as being the son of Mr. Dunlop. Maybe being the son of my father isn't that bad after all. I can't wait to see what the future brings for me out here in the West. I think moving over here was the best choice in which my family has ever made. In years to come I hope that I can achieve my goal of being a writer for a real newspaper. It's good that mum has finally warmed to the idea of Western Australia being our new home. As long as my family are happy so am I. By Sam Linke. ...read more.
