On the Road in Australia

Situation: Two friends, an Australian and a European, are in the northern Australian city of Brisbane.

W: All packed! Are we ready to go?

M: Yep! Let's get this Australian road trip started! Hey, where are we going exactly?

W: Well, I was thinking that we'd start by going down to the Gold Coast first. But you better be prepared: Australia isn't as close and connected as Europe is.

M: Europe isn't as close and connected as you might think. We have a lot of open land between towns, too.

W: Oh, fair enough. We'll be driving down the coast for about 12 hours.

M: Twelve hours!?

W: Yeah. It's a big country.

M: But we're still only going to be in the same state aren't we?

W: Yeah, this state I live in is called Queensland, and it's about three times the size of France!

M: Three times bigger than France? Wow, this IS a big country.

W: Yup, let's go driving!

(Gets in car, car starts)

M: Hey, YOU'RE DRIVING ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE ROAD!

W: What!? No, I'm not!

M: YES, YOU ARE!

W: We drive on the left side in Australia.

M: WHY? Ah, I can't take this at the moment. Let me take a little nap. Wake me up when we arrive somewhere.

W: OK then, but I need my driving music… "I hoped off the plane at LAX with a dream and my cardigan…" (Plays "Party in the USA" by Miley Cyrus)
