Hi! I'm Danya. I live in Sydney, Australia with Mr Banya and our 2 daughters JJ and Bee. We sew, craft, play, bake, laugh and love. I blog about us at www.danyabanya.com.

What's the best part of raising a family in Australia?

Australia will always be my home. It's where I grew up, and it's where most of our extended family and friends live. Even in Sydney's suburbia, there is a ruggedness, an earthiness, a wholesomeness. Australian people are quick to smile.

In what ways is Australia unique from other places you've lived or traveled?

We've lived in Amsterdam and have travelled all around Europe, North America and Asia. There are so many wonderful places in the world, each with their own unique offering. But for me, Australia is simply home. I love to visit other places (and stay a while), but I'll always return.

What do your kids love most about living in Australia?

So much! The flora, the fauna, the climate, the beaches, the bush, the neighbourhood. What's not to love?
