This is kind of funny. Apparently the Australian government has issued a warning to travelers to "exercise caution" when traveling to Canada. This is because of terrorists, avalanches and more...

http://www.thestar.com/News/article/297431

Australians taking the advice of their government's "Smart Traveller" web site will likely be steering clear of Canada.

That website, which is run by Australia's Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, has Canada listed as a country where travellers should "exercise caution," which is the second-safest category.

Apparently our problems stem from the threat of terrorism, heavy snow, ice and forest fires that can erupt "at any time."

Canada should issue a travel 'warning' for Canadians traveling to Australia.

Canadian travelers should exercise caution when traveling to Australia;

"Australian has more poisonous and bitey nasties than any other nation in both the sea and on land - crocodiles, jellyfish, snakes, sharks and spiders, to name but a few - as well as the occasional felons who set fire to backpacker hostels or ambush tourists on lonely outback roads."

Plus, the sun could potentially fry your skin right off which could lead to death and you could drown in the waters, which make up a high percentage of tourist deaths each year. And aren't there killer kangaroos on the loose out there too???? Eeeeks!

Use great caution and always be on the lookout for danger!

Canadian girls seem to jump on guys with Auzzie dialects. May be the most dangerous part and they don't even mention that.

There is something about those accents, and Kiwi ones too but I learned a long time ago not to let them fool me!! Used to date an Aussie guy long time ago.I'm sure it was the accent that first hooked me in......smile.gif

Hmm apart from the threat of heavy snow and ice (ok, maybe in Tasmania) how is that any different to home? laugh.gif
