Observations

Salt and vinegar crisps are pink in Australia. Everyone knows pink is prawn cocktail!

Place names – Richmond, Windsor, Newcastle, Oxford, St. Andrews, Petersham, Boxhill, Lewisham, Kensington, Surrey, Liverpool… seeing a pattern?

Vegemite is fine, everyone! I thought there’d be something massively offensive/unusual in it. There is not. It is fine.

The whole pub culture thing that we take for granted here, they’re not so big on it. There was a few dotted around but not really the force to be reckoned with that they are here.

There is a thank you sign when you leave the motorway! Cute.

Australia is really really big. Really big. No, I mean, it’s huge. Massive. Very massive.

They like adding an o onto the end of stuff. Everything. Check it out = Crappo (crap). Bowlo (bowl). Bottlo (off license). Houso (council house). Rego (registration). Rivo (Riverstone). Vego (vegetarian). You think I’m kidding, don’t you? Well, here’s the photographic evidence.

    I was totally wondering for a minute why you’d want to eat snacks referring to snakes….. Idiot I know.
