Travel Australia? Well I'd practice my Canadian accent, say EH and you betcha. HOHSE not house. Australians hate America. So I have to be careful.

Probably start north at Port Douglas work my way down to Australia Zoo to Steve Irwins shrine. WHAT A GREAT MAN?

Then I'd find that white sandy beach in Queensland where the dingoes roam. Porpoise Spit that fictional town In Queensland in Muriels Wedding. I want to go to someplace like that .

Then Hunter Valley Winery and Sydney where Olympics Games were and have a meat pie. Like to explore area where first Australian settlers arrived.

Highlight of trip would be Aussie rules football game in Melbourne or a horse race. Try their coffee thats better than Starbucks. Then I rent a car a drive the great ocean road.

I'll pick you up at the airport if you like. No need to send photo - I'll just listen for the biggest whinger getting off the plane.

Come in your winter - our summer - crocs are active. crocs love international food.

Alligator river is a name. A drunken settler named the place after a few too many drinks and accidentally referring to an American dictionary for describing a long snappy thing with sharp teeth.

They were explored by Lieutenant Phillip Parker King in 1820 who named them in the mistaken belief that the crocodiles in the estuaries were alligators.
Where did you get the bit about him being a drunken settler?

I was being tongue in cheek. Your story is worse, I would have expected a British Lieutenant to be exposed to the basics of biology.

In 1850? do you think he would have got close enough to tell the difference? Unless you are familiar which I doubt a pommy Lieutenant in the 1800's would have been, its an easy mistake to make.

Yes 1820 according to your source. Even so crocodiles were swarming all over northern Australia so he had to be a little daft in understanding basic geography that Alligators are only found in north America. I'm imagining him truding around the northern territory in his wellingtons declaring to his suboordinates that he "saw an alligator" LOL!

Everything you mentioned was made by Whites. Why not try living with Abos for a week and then tell us how useful or useless Abos really are?

Humbert might have trouble acquiring one of your Aussie tourist visas. ;) Such is the issue for many non-Western visitors, like Humbert, to your country (as well as back in the States). Will you sponsor his visit?

If not, I suggest Humbert just keeps playing around with his delusional misinformed Aussie fantasies on Google. Besides with all the BS he posts, he wouldn't have time to get his rickshaw on the boat for his big international trip of a lifetime.

The DHS wouldn't want him in the US either. So, perhaps the noodle-slurper should stick with his false US proxy location, and just enjoy his fantasy trips to Vegas, NYC, etc, online. ;)

I'm a real chef - not a burger boy.

I can cook everything, and having lived remote for 3 years have learnt to cook native foods in a traditional way. So no crumbed deep fried grubs from me.
