When i came back from Australia, many people asked me about the stereotype of the Australians:
Are Australian Blond long hair with a surf board or a guitar ?
Out of the blond hair thing, the answer is YES, of course everyone is not like that but it is a cultural thing there. As French people, wine is not on every table but it is common.
Many times while going to work and taking the bus it is not rare to see a guy in suit going to work with a briefcase in one hand and the surf board under the other arm. At lunch they go and get some waves for an hour and then come back to work.
When it come the end of the day, they let the surf board for the guitar to have a fire on the beach. A nice time to spend with friends redoing the world and singing.
Have you experienced that?
