A tour of Australia via my iPhone
5/6/2012 - Beef jerky is not permitted entry into Australia, unless accompanied by an import permit. Unpopped popcorn (eg. microwave popcorn) is not permitted entry into Australia and must be destroyed.
5/7/2012 - There are more kangaroos than people in Australia. (Thank you crazy lady who owns a kangaroo skin shop)
5/8/2012 - Crocodiles and Pythons are cannibalistic.
5/9/2012 - "Bogan" is the slang Australian word for "Red Necks"
5/10/2012 - Koalas can only be held for 30 minutes a day, and only 180 minutes a week.
5/11/2012 - Although they are called the 12 Apostles, there are many more than 12 of them (and they were originally called the Sow and her Piglets but I guess that sounded too lame for the Aussies)
5/12/2012 - In Australia, instead of saying "You're welcome" the appropriate response is "No worries." My goal is to speak like a native by the time we leave, Amanda's goal is probably to disown me. She's not loving my Aussie lingo.
5/13/2012 - Mother's Day is the same in Australia as it is in the US... today!
5/14/2012 - The Tasmanian devil is the only carnivorous marsupial.
5/15/2012 - Only ~35% of Australia's beaches are accessible by car.
5/16/2012 - Kings Cross (the red light district in Sydney) is home to the largest Coca-Cola sign in the Southern Hemisphere.
5/17/2012 - Australians are some of the most politically incorrect people I have ever spoken to. Particularly after a few beers.
