Australia vs USA: 20 Differences

20 Differences between Australia and the USA. I recently spent 2 weeks in Australia, and in many ways it seems similar to the USA, but the things that are different definitely stand out! EXPAND DESCRIPTION FOR TABLE OF CONTENTS. I share some of the things that I found to be most different between Australia and the USA. As an American, I had a view of Australia being like what I’ve seen in the Crocodile Dundee movies… and well… not everybody in Australia carries a huge knife! 1 - Australian English Parking Lot - Car Park Opening Hours - Trading Hours Pot/Pint of Beer - Small Glass or Big Glass Jumper - Jacket lollis - hard candies Bloke - guy Mate - friend No worries - no problem Uni - University Maccas - Mcdonalds Sunnies - sunglasses Brekkie - breakfast Roo - Kangaroo 2 - Store Hours Stores in Australia seem to have really early closing hours 3 - Paying at restaurants In Australia it is often at the front of the store, not with the server 4 - Tipping No tipping in Australia 5 - Paper money in different sizes From small to big based on currency And there aren’t any pennies in Australia 5 cents is the smallest coin 6 - Prices include Tax I quite like this one 7 - Credit card fees are Rampant Taxis charge extra for using a credit card 8 - Cars drive on the left instead of the right But people don’t seem to walk on the left instead of the right Sidewalk Chaos! No turn on red 9 - Dates are reversed Day then month instead of Month then Day 10 - Imperial vs Metric Celsius vs Fahrenheit Miles vs Kilometers 11 - Way more south Asian Food Singaporean & Malaysian food is plentiful in Australia 12 - Knife and Fork etiquette Australians keep their knife and the fork held all the time 13 - Coffee Australian coffee is espresso based Much stronger than American coffee 14 - Summer vs Winter Seasons are reversed I left a heat wave in California to arrive to 1 Degree C in Australia 15 - Sports Australians love their sports! Australian Rules Football - Footy - Circle Court Cricket! Multiple teams to a city No ‘college’ sports 16 - Australian Calendar starts on Monday Makes sense -- it’s the beginning of the work week Why does the US Calendar start on Sunday? 17 - Power outlets I’ve never seen Australian power outlets anywhere else 18 - Much more water conscious Australians are taught to only take 3 minute showers And most toilets have 2 buttons, light flush and big flush 19 - Electric Tea Kettles Push a button and the water gets hot! No stove required! 20 - Population Size For about the same size as the continental US, Australia has way less people Australian Population: 23 Million USA Population: 323 Million NEXT LIVE STREAM: October16, 2017 @ 8PM Los Angeles Time.

How to travel the world with almost no money | Tomislav Perko | TEDxTUHH

Many people daydream about traveling the world, but all of them have the same excuse - lack of money. Tomislav, after traveling the world for years with almost no money, shows how it is possible for everyone to do the same, if they really want to. Tomislav Perko, 29, is a travel writer from Croatia. After a career of a stockbroker, broke because of the financial crisis, he hits the road and turns it into his home. He uses alternative ways of traveling – hitchhiking, couchsurfing, working/volunteering, and manages to wander around the world with just a little bit of money in his pocket, meeting the most amazing people on the way. Five years later, he publishes a book “1000 Days of Spring” and goes around giving lectures about what it means to live on the road. Find out more on his website: This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
