Sydney Italian Festival
On 19 March, 1932, after nine years of planning and building, more than a million Australians crossed the newly opened Sydney Harbour Bridge, the largest arch bridge in the world. This revised edition of Peter Spearitt's biography of the Bridge celebrates the 80th anniversary of the Sydney Harbour Bridge in March 2012. It tells the extraordinary story of the Bridge's design and construction, the drama of its official opening, and the way it has taken a central place in Sydney's celebrations and become a much-loved symbol of the city. The Bridge has inspired great art and drawn visitors from all over the world to marvel and climb it, yet is still so familiar that Sydneysiders refer to it endearingly as the coathanger. The Sydney Harbour Bridge celebrates not only a magnificent structure, but the people who use it.
Australia has evolved from a nation of tea drinkers into one of passionate, true-to-Italian-immigrant espresso consumers.
Have you ever dreamed of travelling around the world? Not merely on a shoestring but one that is multi-threaded that keeps on expanding and increasingly colourful and fulfilling. This is a story of a woman who made a modern day pilgrimage and spiritual journey as she traveled through India, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Australia not only on a budget but totally dependent on divine providence, trusting that all that she needs will be provided by God, by the universe. She found a way to balance her childhood Christian faith with new lessons and values of intention, law of attraction and gratitude. What began as a journey in physical miles ended up in spiritual mileage-into knowing herself, thus overcame fears and found herself. The journey included moments of just Being vs Doing, and coming to seeing human beings, herself and others as channels of love, peace and joy. A great story for those starting their own exploration of themselves and spirituality Website: www.RunWaters.blogspot.com
