Canadian Musts vs Aussie Musts

In Canada you must:
  • Try real maple syrup (don't worry, I'll bring some home)
  • Take a photo of a moose, beaver, elk, etc
  • Eat Elk!!!
  • Use words like 'brutal', 'super', 'sketchy', 'perfect' and 'right on'
  • Go to the Rockies
  • Try Beef Jerky
  • Drink a Caesar - which is tomato and clam juice with some alcohol (vodka?) in it! I have not yet tried one.
  • Snowboard
  • Lose a tooth and spit like crazy

  • In Australia you must:
    • Eat fish and chips by the beach and feed lone chips to lone seagulls
    • Go to the beach
    • See the outback
    • Contrary to popular belief, do not say 'Chuck a shrimp on the Barbie'
    • Have a BBQ
    • Try Fosters and VB (although no real Aussie would drink such crap)
    • Learn to surf

    • And probably a shitload more to add to this list but I will keep updating.

      Interesting reading the comparisons. Im a kiwi lass and did the same when living in Scotland. Sooo many differences.

      What does Elk taste like?

      Elk - it is amazing. It is like beef (texture wise and colour) however cooked to perfection, it just absolutely melts in your mouth.
