Most expats when coming to America like to claim that everything is bigger, you might agree when you get there as well. However, there are many similarities between America and Australia. If you are moving with children it is also important that we mention school similarities. It is on a k-12 system a lot like Australia. The major difference for Australians in America is that they drive on the opposite side of the road. Calm coastal cities and surfing beaches are to the plenty along the American 12,000 acre coastlines. They may not be up to par with the golden sand and blue waters of Australia, but if in the need to catch a wave or see the water, it’ll do. In America remember to stay on the right side of the road.
