It has been said that people who hail from Perth in Western, Oz are friendlier and more down-to-eatrh than their eastern counterparts. I won’t take sides on this issue; however, I will say that I’ve made a lot of good friends with folks from Australia’s wild west!
We get a lot of great people visiting from Downunder. Aussies travellers can be found virtually everywhere and anywhere and constitute an inordinately large proportion of our hostel guests.
When Aussies travel, they tend to go for long periods at a time. A three-month trip is considered very, very short for an Australian. It’s such a long trip to go virtually anywhere that many of them travel for years!
Right at the moment we have, at least, seven guests from Western Oz staying at the Canadiana. Our plan was to get a photo of the all together for this blog but we can’t seem to get them all in one place at the same time! As I said, they’re real travellers!
