Despite the fact that it requires many thousands of dollars/kilometres for Australians to holiday abroad, and our currency is always being picked on by the bigger kids, we Strayans continue to travel overseas in rising numbers, and with craftier luggage tricks. Good on us.
I usually choose Italy. I’ll go there annually if they’ll continue to have me, despite my terrible pronunciation of “grazie”.
Some reasons include:
- Ricotta cheesecake
- Swimming off rocks and no sand anywhere
- No judgment when ordering a bowl of pasta, then pizza
- Friendly, warm, welcoming Italians
- Everyone looks great because everyone wears sunglasses always
