It’s impossible, absolutely impossible, for us to describe how much we’ll miss Australia and the Aussies. Here are a couple videos that make us tear up every time we see ’em. One’s old and one’s brand new.
“I Still Call Australia Home” was written by Aussie composer Peter Allen and brought to life in this gorgeous Qantas Airlines commercial that features an Aussie kids’ choir in locations around Australia and the world. They used to run a longer version on all international flights bound for Australia, but Jamie refused to watch it because it made her cry. I can’t find it on YouTube, but you’ll get the idea from this shorter version.
This is a new Australian Tourism commercial called “It’s Like Love”. They ran it prior to last night’s movie in the Botanical Garden. We were both in tears again.
What a couple of softies.
