Random thoughts about Australia and New Zealand

Posted by on October 27, 2009
  • I ordered a ham sandwich at Subway and they looked at me like I’d lost my mind when I asked for American cheese. Apparently they call it “tasty” cheese.
  • Kangaroo steak is really good.
  • Australians are extremely friendly and they really like Americans.
  • Why is Coke so much? A 16 ounce bottle is $3.50.
  • Everyone cusses a lot. I’ve heard grandmas and little kids cuss since we got off the plane.
  • Mullets are alive and well in Australia.
  • Why do fruits and vegetables cost so much? Grapes are $10.50/kilogram!
  • Gas is incredibly expensive – it was over $100 to fill up our little campervan.
  • New Zealanders really like our re-runs – My Wife and Kids, Friends, Malcolm in the Middle
  • Air New Zealand is fabulous! The safety video features naked flight attendants with body paint. It was the only safety info I’ve paid attention to in several years.
