Australia Day!

Happy Australia Day for those who are in Australia! 🙂 Love public holidays! Today marks the day of the arrival of the First Fleet at Sydney Cove in 1788 and the proclamation at that time of British sovereignty over the eastern seaboard of New Holland.

These celebrations consist of waving the flag and BBQs galore! Lots of lamb, beer and lamingtons.
Also the Australian Open is being held these last couple of weeks and I have been hanging out to watch the actual games in person but unfortunately now that they have come to the Semi finals – all the ground passes consist of Junior matches.

Victoria Market also has their weekly night markets so I had to check them out. They have food stalls from all different countries!

 

Aussie stall – Kangaroo burger, Crocodile burger, Ostrich burger :S

 

Monster American pancakes?? Probably double or triple the size of Australian pancakes!

We tried Paella – Spanish food and Japanese food – Takoyaki – octopus balls. They were soo good.

 

So Happy Australia Day to all you Aussies out there! Aussie Aussie Aussie Oi Oi Oi!!

  1. Happy Australia Day! I’m not Australian (sadly) but I have been there and I have many amazing friends there. I’m sad that we as Americans are represented by Monster American Pancakes – apparently everything we eat is monster-sized ; ) Thanks for checking out my blog and your tips! Love your background!
