Australia has a number of things going for it, in that it has a low population for the habitable land compared to much of the world, is a long way from political trouble spots, and a first world level of infrastructure. While it also has bush fires and poisonous reptiles and spiders, these are not major players in the overall way of life. However, it does suffer droughts from time to time. Because of this I’ve wondered sometimes about going to New Zealand, which I don’t think is as dry as Australia.
