Recently, I read on ‘Traveller’ a great blog that every Australian traveller will relate to! Love these 13 sayings!

1. “I wish we had coffee like this back home”
2. “I’d love to visit that country – but it’s too far away”
3. “That’s too long to be away”
4. “I’m not eating anything weird”
5. “It’s so good to find some other Australians”
6. “Do you think people will be offended if we get really smashed?”
7. “The rent here is insanely expensive”
8. “Do they accept Australian dollars here?”
9. “Everything here is so far apart”
10. “Are you from Australia, or New Zealand?”
11. “How great is tipping?”
12. “That is the most beautiful beach I’ve ever seen”
13. “This is the best country in the world”
