My Aunt came to Brisbane with my Mamma this time. She helps in an elementary schools and wants to keep her kids and grands updated. So while she is here, I told her we could do some of these posts.
First off, How far is Australia away from Louisiana? To put it in perspective the distance would let you start on the west coast of The U.S. drive to the east coast of The U.S. and back to the west coast of The U.S., with some miles left over. The circumference of the world is around 24,000 miles. We are almost half way around. to be exact it is 9,635 miles away.
When people come to visit that far away jet lag is something you really have to plan for. Australia is 15 hours ahead of Louisiana. When it is 3:00 PM on Monday in Louisiana, it is 6:00 AM on Tuesday in Brisbane. The first thing to do, is stay awake. I always take my guests to Lone Pine.

The language is English, but they still speak the Queens English. The words are a little different. Click Here to see a recap of that.
What are some questions you have for the next post? You can put them in the comment section.
