Because I’m not Canadian (or any host of other nationalities) I am unable to extend my visa in Australia.  No fruit picking, no farm work, nothing.   I have to leave.  It’s tragic because I’ve grown to love this country.  Mostly the accents and a couple of the people.  I’ll be back but I don’t know when, visas make things complicated.  I am going to keep traveling for now — off to Asia next. If I have been lucky enough to meet you during this epic year long journey THANK YOU for the impact you have had on my life — I am grateful for your friendship. Except for Jeff, Australia rocks.

Pretty Faced Walabee is the actual name of an actual animal.

I think the reason people drink so much at sporting events (cricket) is because you can’t understand anything that’s going on anyway.

In a country that's famous for abbreviations, why do they pronounce ever letter in IGA?
