I’ve been in Australia for almost 5 months now and even if this doesn’t make me an expert on the topic, it was enough time for me to notice some interesting aspects about this country.

This is one of the things that has always amused me the most about living in another country: If you keep your eyes and ears open (listen to what people say to you!) you will soon realise that there are habits, traditions, trends that are different from the ones you are used to at home. And it might make you reconsider your own believes (or stick to them even tighter).

So, here are the things that I have noticed, or that I have been told and have somehow left a mark, in this country full of surprises.

The idea is to update the list every time sometimes interesting comes along! And I have the impression that will happen often… Click on the ones that interest you to read more!

Let’s begin!

1) BEING SUNSMART IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT
