Australian Lifestyle (part 1)

Hello everyone that is the ‘Frenchy’ speaking for you to tell you the typical Australian lifestyle…

Most of the Australian people living in Australia are from England, that is the reason why Australian lifestyle is soo closed to the English lifestyle. In around the world Australia is famous for his surf lifestyle, BBQ, beer with some friends in a pub watching a rugby match after a day of surf or just having a BBQ with some friends near a beach.  Australians are very friendly and helpful people, with a great sense of humor and a natural ability to tell jokes and play with words. Some times we may appear cold because of our “private nature” which has been imported over the past 2 decades, but it is just takes time to “break the ice”, and everything goes well. It means you can talk about any subject, but for more personal matters, things will take a little bit longer to come out in the open. 

Sports in Australia: australian rugby

The Australian is a hard competitor, considered one of the most competitive people in the world in any area, and also in relation to work. Surfing for instance, they broke the long year’s hegemony of Hawaiian and Californian surfers and they brought several world titles to Australia. Still in Surf, companies as Billabong and Rip Curl defeated other big ones, making brands that turn dictators of the young fashion worldwide. Many types of sports are practiced in Australia, and most of them are outdoor sports due to favorable climate. Rugby is one of the most popular sports in Australia, existing 3 divisions: Rugby Union, Australian Rules and Rugby League. Actually despite they look alike, each one has many different rules. The great majority of the Australians calls Rugby of “Footy”, that means, all of them are Footy. Rugby has the same importance for an Australian than the Soccer has for a Brazilian.  Cricket is maybe the second most popular practiced sport, with long and endless departures being transmitted by television on the weekends. The Australian youths in the school practice it in the breaks, and it is also very common to see whole families playing at parks and beaches.

Surf in Australia:

Maybe one of the factors is that those sports’ gear doesn’t cost a lot. The Australians seem to have longs for salty in the blood, and all the nautical and linked sports are quite popular. For many bridge fishermen, the first thing that do when having a financial rest, it is to buy a powerboat. The result is that, maybe in nowhere in the world, you could see so many motorized boats as in Australia. Each area may differ in preference mainly in relation to the climate. Other sports as Water Skiing, Snow Ski, Jet Ski, Parasailing, Mountaineering, also has space in the sun depending on the time and season.
