Australia, also known as the Commonwealth of Australia, seems to us and many others as a faraway land that is exotic and mysterious. There are many things about the continent and country that are foreign to us that go way beyond the accent and the fact that they drive on the other side of the road. We thought it would be wise to compile a list of things you should know about the land down under before you attempt a visit to the glorious place. There are many wonderful things about it but there are also things you need to know to prepare yourself (physically and mentally) for such a venture.
We talk about kangaroos, naturally, since they are indeed a big part of the Aussie style. We go over what you may run into, a little history of the country (which is MUCH more advanced and modern than we give it credit for by the way), as well as little known facts about the nation that will warm your heart and fill your tummies. Australia has a lot to offer to anyone who wishes to visit the sunny spot. You do have to remember that their seasons are opposite from the Western world as they are in the southern hemisphere, so when we have summer, they have winter, and so on and so forth.
Their economy is booming, the people are very nice, the kangaroos are mean so steer clear, the continent is bigger than we are sure you are aware of, and they like eating some pretty strange things. Australia is part of the royal government of Queen Elizabeth of the United Kingdom, and we also learn a bit about how she handled the government there in the 70s, you’ll love it!
[post_page_title]The dangerous box jellyfish[/post_page_title]
Also commonly known as a ‘sea wasp’, this box-like medusa can be found floating in the waters of the Great Barrier Reef. What’s mostly dangerous about this jellyfish is that its sting can cause a human being experience agonizing pain and in some cases can lead to fatal consequences. This slippery stinger has around fifteen tentacles in each of its corner. They each contain around 500,000 explosive cells that can inject poison into a human being.
