    MOBI Down Under ePUB ¼ ✓ gigonog.me ✓ down epub, under pdf, Down Under PDFLovely little adventure a la Bill Bryson No one knows incidentally why Australia's spiders are so extravagantly toxic; capturing small insects and injecting them with enough poison to drop a horse would appear to be the most literal case of overkill Still it does mean that everyone gives them lots of space What an absolutely stunning endorsement As with his other traveling books Bill Bryson hip hops his way across a country visiting monuments and interviewing natives We meet uirky characters and Australian wildlife galore from the poisonous snakes to the brutal kookaburra Incidentally did you know that the kookaburra likes to bash its pre

    MOBI Down Under ePUB ¼ ✓ gigonog.me ✓ down epub, under pdf, Down Under PDFI love Bill Bryson Yep it's a full blown one sided bromance Bryson could write a book about the history of the individual rooms within the typical house and I would love it he did and I did So when I discovered he'd written about his experiences while traveling Australia

    MOBI Down Under ePUB ¼ ✓ gigonog.me ✓ down epub, under pdf, Down Under PDFBill Bryson never seems to use the same approach to each of his books Is this book going to be snarky Bill? Is this going to be funny Bill? Is this going to be funny yet informative Bill? Is this going to be snarky yet informative Bill? I could go on but my hands would start to cramp up with the unlimited combinationsThis one is reverential informative and mostly self effacing humor Bill Bill loves Australians but he hates the fact that the country is over run with hordes of killer species and there’s a big hot assed desert in the middle of the continentAustralians are lovely people The one’s I’ve known were incredibly friendly and generous I worked with a couple who were touring the United States and working at odd jobs along the way When they were leaving they gave me their contact information and invited me to visit at any time If they are reading this my family will be down under in a week

    MOBI Down Under ePUB ¼ ✓ gigonog.me ✓ down epub, under pdf, Down Under PDFI developed a taste for Bill Bryson last year when I read his Short History of Nearly Everything an ambitious attempt to trace the history of life the universe and everything in just 574 pages While many of the scientific discoveries outlined in the book were a little beyond me I thoroughly enjoyed Bryson's descriptions of the larger than life personalities behind the discoveries which really brought the science described to life So when I found out that he had also written a travelogue of a journey across the country I may soon call home Australia I simply had to read itAustralia for those of you who have never been there is one of the most colourful places on earth It has a history so bizarre that it makes China's seem normal by comparison It has insane expanses of the most arid desert imaginable as well as some of the world's most beautiful beaches where unfortunately you can't swim due to the prev

    MOBI Down Under ePUB ¼ ✓ gigonog.me ✓ down epub, under pdf, Down Under PDFI love Australia even though I have never been there It has amazing wilderness and is the setting of beautiful movies; it exports talented actors actresses and directors; it has that Great Barrier Reef thingy which is apparently so wonderful that is is a Natural Wonder of the World; and it is home to the stunning Sydney Opera House And oh yeah Aussies gave us UGGs So we have a lot to thank them forBill Bryson also loved Australia so much so that he spent months touring its cities and the Outback Bryson employed his usual humor in this travelogue and numerous sections had me laughing out loud sometimes embarrassingly so But he would also wax rhapsodic about how amazing the land wasThere was no place in the world like it There still isn't Eighty per

    MOBI Down Under ePUB ¼ ✓ gigonog.me ✓ down epub, under pdf, Down Under PDFAs expected this was a mix of fun facts and a companion travel piece Being Australian I’m sure I enjoyed this than the average non Australian reader but I could see that some parts especially the parts apart about politics and cricket could bore a few readers who aren’t already familiar with our peculiar sports and politicians I enjoyed the read and found it fun when injected with Bryson’s humourous anecdotes along the way I also realised how very little I’ve seen of my own ridiculously large country Makes me want to pack up the car and go for a road trip and see something other than the East Coast of Australia and the main c
