1. You’ve been mistaken for an Australian at least once in your life.
Typical conversation when meeting someone abroad:
“And…where are you from?”
“Australia? Oh what a beautiful country!”
“No. Austria. In Europe. That one with the Alps.”
After your conversation partner finds out that you’re not from one of his favorite travel destinations, but from some undefined place in Europe, he gives you a puzzled look, stares down, gives you a big grin, and comes up with the most stereotypical representation of Austria he can think of —
“Oooh. That country from The Sound of Music!”
