Oliver and Siri (on his iPad mini) did some research about our travel destinations:
What is an itinerary?
According to http://www.thefreedictionary.com, an itinerary is “a route or proposed route of a journey”.
Here is where Mum and I are going:
- Where is it: England is part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and lies in North West Europe
- Distance from Australia: 16,990 kms
- Hours to get there (from Australia): 21-22 hours
- Language/s spoken: British English
- Currency and exchange rate: British pounds, £1 = $1.57 in Australian money
- Size (relative to Australia): 130,395 km2; Australia is 7,692,024 km2, so England is less than 2% of the size of Australia
- Population: 51 million people; Australia’s population is 22.3 million, so England has twice as many people in less than 2% of the area of Australia!
- What I might eat: fish and chips
- Where is it: Denmark is one of the four Nordic countries and lies in Northern Europe
- Distance from Australia: 16,160 kms
- Language/s spoken: Danish (many people also speak English)
- Currency and exchange rate: Danish krone, DKK1 = 18 cents in Australian money
- Size (relative to Australia): 43,094 km2, so Denmark is less than 0.5% of the size of Australia
- Population: 5.5 million people, so Denmark has 25% of the population of Australia but in only 0.5% of the area of Australia
- What I might eat: Meatballs
Amsterdam and Rotterdam, The Netherlands
- Where is it: The Netherlands is in Europe and borders Germany
- Distance from Australia: 16,690 km
- Language/s spoken: Dutch and English
- Currency and exchange rate: Euros, €1 = $1.34 in Australian money
- Size (relative to Australia): 41,543 km2, so The Netherlands is less than 0.5% of the size of Australia
- Population: 16.6 million people, so The Netherlands has 75% of the population of Australia but in only 0.5% of the area of Australia!
- What I might eat: Bread, cheese and ham
Good old Siri.
Sounds like you guys might be looking forward to eating some vegetables when this trip is over!
Ha ha ha! That’s what Siri told us people eat in these countries. I know for a fact that fish and chips from a fish n chip shop in London is disgusting, so we might be choosing something different!
Absolutely Carolyn! Excellent and inexpensive curry!
