Upon arriving in Australia, I knew that there were going to be some words that I didn’t quite recognize or understand the meaning to. I’ve compiled a list of some of the most used Australian Slang to help other travelers avoid the strange looks that I was so fortunate to receive.
Australia is definitely a unique place to be, but Aussies always know how to put a smile on my face. Post in the comments and tell me of any funny stories involving mixed up words/slang errors during your travels!
Well, everyone, I am back in the land down under!
I apologize for the hiatus, however, due to unforeseen circumstances, I went home for the holidays to be with my family and regroup.
Short story: I moved into a new families house at the beginning of November and was told after 3 weeks that they no longer needed an Au Pair because they were sending back one of their 2 foster kids… (Yes, I am serious), leaving me stranded with nowhere to go. So instead of worrying about where to be for the holidays, my awesome aunt bought a ticket for me to come home and be with family while I figured out what was next.
Fast forward two months and now I am back in Australia living in Pottsville, New South Wales with my boyfriend Billy! It is a beautiful area right across from the creek and beach. Honestly, I do not know how I got so lucky to be living down under with my best friend. The beauty of this country continues to WOW me every day. I am still on the hunt for a new (Non-Au Pair) job but I am hopeful that something will come up soon. I’ll try to stay more up to date with my blog now that I have a bit more free time, so stay tuned.
