My first Australian dollars 

British money being waterproof is great because it rains. Australian money being waterproof is great because sweating is something I will do excessively there.

Australia is not in Europe, but it is real.

After a mild panic attack at the thought of buying flights to a fictional country, I sat and looked at my dollars. My Auntie gave me them, more than she should have. As she won’t be able to make it up to see me before I leave, she put the money it would have cost for transport in a card. I would have refused if she was here personally. I will ensure it is put to good use.


I like the colour. One thing I prefer Aus $ over US $ is the colouring. I wouldn’t care which I had in my wallet though, it would mean I was travelling somewhere and currency doesn’t rival experience.

For now, it is a bookmark for this book she also bought me as a little present. A fun read!


Tomorrow I will be in Edinburgh for the Fringe Festival. Expect photos of weird and wonderful street acts and beautiful architecture.
