My favourite photograph

Extracts from this document...


My favourite photograph My favourite photograph is of me doing a bungee jump; it evokes memories from one of the best times of my life, when I visited Australia. Enroute to Australia, we stopped over in Hong Kong. I detested Hong Kong. It was dull, uninteresting and smoggy; the food was disgusting, not like the Chinese food here, and the people were not to welcoming. But what a change in Australia, it was the total opposite. Our first Australian destination was Cairns, which is in Northern Queens land, near the Great Barrier Reef. It was stunning beyond words.
