18 Things Australians Find Weird About Visiting New York

You're not in Australia anymore.

Posted on

1. Bodegas (corner delis) sell beer and liquor stores don't.

There's beer in there...

4. All the rubbish on the side of the road? That's where it's meant to be because there are no garbage bins.


5. Breakfast comes with a side of potatoes, or "home fries."

6. There are FREE pools.

8. Beer and shot combos cost around $7 or $8 and are the best thing ever.


It's more weird that Australians haven't adopted this back home yet.


10. Blinkers? Optional. Car Horns? Mandatory.


13. Unless you know the cafe, don't attempt to order coffee that isn't an Americano (long black) or iced, you'll only be disappointed.

The stereotype that Australians are coffee snobs is true, just go with it.

15. Although you will get used to tipping, you always forget about the sales tax tacked on at the end. Never take GST for granted.

18. Getting a cheeky drunk on at brunch is 100% acceptable.

Another thing we should probably adopt ASAP. But not the term "brunch," never bring that back.
