Things about Australia I Never Knew

I have always been fascinated by Australia. When I was 12 my neighbors grandchildren from Australia visited her for the summer. Not only was he adorable but his accent had me falling in love! 

I have wanted to travel there since but I became a US Homebody and never got the opportunity to go. Recently I have done some research and investigating on the vacation of my dreams and that makes me want to visit Australia even more now than I wanted when I was a kid. 

Here are some of the things I have discovered:

 If you visited one new beach in Australia every day, it could take you up to 27 years to see and visit them all. I could think of worse ways to spend 27 years!
There are 60 designated wine regions in Australia. Your bound to find a wine you love with those type odds!

Australia has 3.3x more sheep, baaa, than people. WOW! All I'm going to say!

There have been no deaths in Australia from an icky spider bite since 1979. Which is good since I hate spiders! Australia does however have sharks, snakes and massive salt water crocodiles. And those have been known to have an impact on life expectancy in some instances. 
The world's largest sand island can be found in Australia - Fraser Island!

Australia has the world’s longest golf course measuring more than 850 miles long. I'm not a golf fan but if you want a vacation with your man and he loves golf, he can golf while you hit up one of those many gorgeous beaches!

The Great Barrier Reef is the planet’s largest living structure

Australia is the 6th largest country by size, a massive 2.9 million square miles. And even though its size is massive the population is only 22.6 million.

The Australian coat of arms features 2 endemic animals; an emu and a kangaroo. Both of which can only move forward, which is widely considered a symbol of progress and represents the notion that the country is never going backwards.

Australia has 516 national parks.

Most people are Protestant or Roman Catholic.

Kargoorlie, a remote town in the state of Western Australia is currently the worlds largest producer of gold.

Now you know more about the beautiful island! 

Here is an interview with someone from Australia! He has served as Australia’s senior government official to the G20 economic summits and has represented the prime minister at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. His name is Andrew Charlton. Read the interview HERE.

You can read another wonderful article on Andrew Charlton HERE. This article was posted on Quarterly Essay, Australia's leading journal on politics, culture and debate.

Free Sample of SASMAR Personal Lubricant

Free Sample of SASMAR Personal Lubricant 
Chicago, 2 August 2017: Personal lubricant brand SASMAR, announced today that it has launched a global lube sample campaign allowing consumers to try one of their long lasting formulations that will be mailed to them free of charge and no purchase is required.

SASMAR aims to enhance the quality of consumers lives with its personal lubricants that are designed to replenish moisture, feel silky and soft on the skin and actually help to increase the pleasure of lovemaking for both partners. The free sample campaign is designed to encourage consumers to experience the high quality of SASMAR personal lubricant formulations and also for consumers who have never used a lube to try personal lubricant for the first time.

The stigma associated with personal lubricant being only for those that experience vaginal dryness or couples “not doing it right” is a myth and our goal with this free sample offering is to communicate the message that SASMAR lube adds fun and excitement for all couples says Laurent Joly, Assistant Brand Manager. “The number of requests received in the past days is incredible and we are looking forward to getting the samples out for people to try!”he further added.

SASMAR was founded in 2005 due to increasing demand from consumers wanting to buy high quality intimate lubricant that did not give them thrush, dry out quickly or get sticky from a supermarket or pharmacy without needing to order it online and wait days for delivery. True to its promise the company now has its range of water-based, silicone based, warming and flavored lubes in more than 60 countries globally, is a major supplier of lubricant to the United Nations and other non-profit governmental organizations working on the prevention of HIV/Aids and reduction of unwanted pregnancies around the world. SASMAR lubricants are FDA cleared and tested compatible with natural rubber latex, polyisoprene and polyurethane condoms providing assurance to consumers of quality that can be trusted to enhance their love life instead of complicating it.
This isn’t the first time SASMAR has run a free lube sample offer, in 2006 the company launched its silicone lubricant with a huge sample giveaway within Australia that lasted many months and resulted in more than 200,000 samples being distributed across the country from their then headquarters in Sydney.
The SASMAR free lube sample offer is available to consumers in United States (USA), United Kingdom (UK), Australia and most of Europe and being over the age of eighteen is a requirement.
