Step 24 – Google all your questions – Part 1

Moving to the other side of the planet without ever having been there is a bit risky. There are so many unanswered questions that crop up every day, from the quirky (why do Australian creatures have 30 times more poison than is needed to kill their natural enemies?) to the practical (what is the currency exchange rate between CAD and AUD?).

So I dug through my internet history from when we were accepted as permanent residents in Australia and here are my Oz-related google searches from the last 25 weeks. (I’ve put any explanation in parenthesis).
