Winter in Australia: it’s ice skating on a beach, curling up with a hot chocolate in front of a fake fire, wearing a beanie and gloves when you barely need a jacket. It might not snow in Sydney, but that doesn’t stop Australians from embracing the Hollywood vision of a winter wonderland.
Growing up in California, I can’t be too judgmental–I’ve only ice skated on the fake rink that pops up in downtown Sacramento every year around Christmas, and I’m known to wear flip-flops all winter long. Even so, slipping on ice skates while listening to the waves crash and watching the colors light up the sunset sky over the surfers, I did smile to myself…only in Australia.
