Aussie Funnies


Now that I have most or our upcoming fall trip to Australia planned, I’ve been reading some more fun things…

It all started with my Aussie friend Wineaux friend Helen, who posted a link on Americans guessing the meaning of Aussie slang. I honestly only knew five of these. And I know I won’t remember the others.

I’ll be meeting up with some Aussie’s my friends Jen, Kim and I met in New Orleans back on New Year’s Eve 2002. They’ve been giving us some travel tips. I liked this one:

“AUSSIE SLANG:  Can only be taught over drinks at night.”

From that site, I found myself hopping to others…

And then started to roll on the floor laughing… (Well, not literally. We have hardwood floors.)

Outback Steakhouse as Explained by a Real Australian

There’s so much to see and so little time. It’s hard to research a destination when you realize you can’t do it all. I mean, who could see the entire U.S. or even just scratch the surface in two weeks? We’re planning to do as much as we can without burning ourselves out. Hopefully, I’ve created some balance in our itinerary.

We can hardly wait.
