Traveling with a large group of Aussies made me learn a lot of Aussie words and phrases. By the end of my nine days in Egypt with them I was speaking with a bit of an Australian accent. I’m still able to distinguish between an Eastern Australian accent and a western one. Additionally, I learned how to convert between Celsius and Fahrenheit fairly quickly. Here’s what I learned:
# sleeps (ex 2 sleeps)=# nights (ex 2 nights)
What’s the haps?=What’s up?
Hot chips=French fries
Wanker=Stupid guy who is full of himself
Netball=Similar to basketball
Chicken Salt=Salt with chicken extract along with other spices. They put it on French fries, chicken, veggies, etc.
Panadol=Like our Advil
