There comes a time when one becomes overwhelmed, where one feels like they might drown on the amount of postal love they are receiving. That is the case with these last 16 postcards that Karmen sent from her first span in Australia. I thought I should just get them all posted that way I will be all caught up and I will no longer feel guilty! To honor these cards I have assembled five interesting facts about Australia that you might not know about along with my deep thoughts.

SEAN PRESENTS: FIVE INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT AUSTRALIA THAT YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT ALONG WITH HIS DEEP THOUGHTS

1. In 1954, Bob Hawke was inducted into the Guinness Book of Records for drinking 2.5 pints of beer in 11 seconds. Hawke, went on to become the Prime Minister of Australia. Party on!

3. Approximately 1.35 trillion bottles of wine are produced by Australia. I’m booking my flight right now.
