The adventures of Fe & Chris

A report card for Australia

We’re leaving Australia tomorrow and are sad to do so. We’ve had a lovely time and have enjoyed lots of wonderful beasties and birds, friendly people, fine weather and dramatic landscapes. All very excellent indeed!

Now, whilst signage is excellent, humorous and even slightly risque (in a way that would not be acceptable in Britain), grammar and spelling are poor. In Australia apostrophes are frequently misused, and little proof reading is evident in signs and menus. This upsets my good lady’s sensibilities greatly.

Mr Rudd, the newly elected Prime Minister, may wish to address this problem!

Australians are exceptional at Surf Lifesaving though - we watched a competition on Bondi Beach this afternoon and they excelled.
