Indeed… :( which begs the question… what has Paphitis done? He needs to come forward… :?


Now that is a very interesting question.

Well, I was born in a town called Albury in New South Wales. believe it or not, I was an Army brat as my Dad was in the Albury/Wobdinga Barracks as a Chef. When he was out we moved to a small town in the Snowy Mountains were I grew up and my Dad started a small Cafe business and went into hobby farming and horses. My Father owned many horses and would enter competitions too.

It was one of the most beautiful places in Australia, probably the world. When I say God's country, I am not joking and I loved being on the farm. We had a lot of water and the land was prime high yield land, and we can see towering mountains and snow fields just a stone's throw away. I learned lots of things such as I was able to ride dirt bikes as a kid, ride a horse and I learned how to ski because I was in the snow each winter with my friends.

Now do you really want to know what's on my conscious? It might take a while.... :?

I have so many fond memories and I still go to the farm in the Upper Murray district to this day and still own it. It is my Patriko.

But the stuff I use to do will make you look like an alter boy Get Real. I am lucky to be relatively unscathed. Do you really want to know?

Below is exactly where I grew up. It was like living in Switzerland.

Yeh I grew up in the country in an area that couldn't be anymore Rural. Went to all catholic private schools run mostly by Irish. In the area famous for the infamous Kelly Gang.

It was a very unusual upbringing to say the least mate.

It was fantastic mate.

I also got some exposure in the big smoke as well growing up, especially in Sydney as we had a house there as well. But I can tell you I never ever had as much fun in Sydney as I did in the Upper Murray. We made our own fun, and my friends were real friends there. Sydney was only good when you got a bit older and needed the clubs and nightlife.

Also Melbourne but not as much as Sydney.

We are very fortunate in Australia mate. Countryside is so diverse.

Sydney and Melbourne are the 2 best cities in the world. No friggin New York, or Las Vegas or San Francisco, or Paris has anything on Melbourne or Sydney or Adelaide or Brisbane for that matter.

It’s a real shame you never experienced Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane or Radelaide.
