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.

Emptying my mind onto the web and hoping to make sense of it. Hoping to help others going through similar struggles.
