I am down under!!! I am at the uni of Adelaide library right now! Spent 5 days in NZ, loovely! Will be here a week. My aunt wants to get a Harley Davidson T-shirt for a friend, and I knew you were the one to ask! Don't know if this will actually reach you, or help my Aunt, but I wanted you to know I was thinking of you, and checking out every motorbike driver I see! Best to you!

G'day. I'm located just near Brisbane, in the state of Queensland -just a wee bit north of Adelaide in the state of South Australia. 🙂

You are probably back home by now. Did you have a good trip? I hope you weren't one of those passengers that took 68 hours to fly from Australia to the USA a day or two ago!! Was it a United Airlines aircraft that had so much trouble?

Thanks for thinking about me. I hope you met some nice Aussie blokes and shielas. 🙂

Tez! I had so much fun. EVERYONE was so nice and friendly. I saw a gent with an Adelaide Australia T-shirt, and got directions to Steve's Motorcycles. We had to be the oddest lot ever to visit, but they were so nice and friendly, and we got the shirt.

We had lovely weather, went to the beach, snorkeled, got my wet suit stolen, held a koala, pet a kangaroo, saw an echidna and lots of bilbys, tasted a feijoa, walked through lovely cities and beautiful parks, learned to call eucalyptus trees gum trees, sang "Give me a home among the gum trees..." Learned all sorts of useful phrases, like "Is that the lot of it?" and "How you going?" It was very very fun.

Got home safe and sound, quick, direct and in business class (YAY). Couldn't believe the story those folks had of their journey.

Absolutely loovely, though no one said "mate":(

Goodonya!

Wot! No one said 'that's mine ... fairdinkum - mate' when tryin ta sell ya the Sydney arbor bridge, eh? They left out the 'matey' when sayin' 'goodonya matey'? You wuz too far south amongst the croweaters and sandgropers. You shoulda com up ta see the banana bender's, we'd a taught yah ta speek strine propa.

If you only knew how silly it feels to not be able to understand people who innocently believe that they are speaking English...:)

While in the Aussie air force,I met a couple of Southern guys(Johnny Rebs) in the USAAF with whom I was totally incommunicardo. But they had brought with them a case of Old Grandad Bourbon so we helped them drink it and introduced them to the sheilas at the WRAN's Naval Base (Women's Royal Australian Navy)They were great blokes - but we could hardly understand a word they said.

They told us 'the South was just restin' 🙂 That took some effort to get across to us.
