    So... we live full time in our caravan traveling Australia
    We visit towns staying between 3 days to 2 weeks.
    Our states are not like in America. Same amount of land space, 50 states in America, 8 in Australia.
    We’re currently in NSW but it’s so big I feel like it would be too much to cover for this challenge, also we haven’t explored enough of it to do that either.
    Would it be ok to choose one of the towns we staid the longest and do it on that?
    Or I could do it on our caravan- the one constant?

    Back to the drawing board for day 11, thought I had an idea but then I found other photos that could be used for a different take on the challenge so now not sure what to do.

    It sounds like this challenge is making you resentful - I am exactly the same way with the year in review page - it was a terrible year and I am hating being told to have to re-live it. So I am going to say that!

    For this challenge for you, could you talk about the things that you don't like about where you live and then may be find just ONE thing that is the 'one saving grace' - a restaurant, a corner of your home, a new friend, local delicacy, being with your husband, or even that there will be a time when you can finally leave?

    First, this isn't meant as a political post, it's written from frustration at a vacation that has become more of an irritation than a joy due to other state rules :( Caught me at a weak moment. :(

    The traduction (141 words)

    Since this pandemic, which started in March 2020, we rediscover our little corner of Brittany. Following the successive confinements, the small hollow paths around the house have almost no secrets for me. Then within a radius of 10 kms with the hikes in the bay and more particularly the one which leaves Moulerie to go to "our" beach, that of Port Morvan. And more widely the whole of Northern Brittany where we regularly hike (within a radius of 1 hour's drive in general) during weekends or vacations, what a lot of beautiful places we have visited in a year and a half: Cliffs of Trestel in Lannion, Landrellec and its peninsula, Plougrescant, Ploumanach, St Jacut de la Mer....etc . And after the effort, what happiness to taste mussels of the Bay or seafood. It is really a magnificent region!

    Berlin is my hometown and I've lived here since I was born.
    Berlin is a big city with a vibrant life, has very hip districts, but also family-friendly peripheral areas and many lakes and green spaces and forests around them. The Spree flows in the city and there are parks everywhere to relax. Berlin is open 24 hours, there is always something going on, there are many offers and Berlin has a certain lifestyle, the Berliners have "heart with a snout" that is how it is called, the people are a bit loud, but always friendly and helpful. we have a very good public transport system and life is very good here
