Gd´day from Australia

Recommended Posts

Gd´day from Australia,

 

my name is Chris and I am new to this bunch of people here.

I live in the beautiful Victoria in Australia, more exactly in Melbourne.

I love to go out in the bush do some fishing, photography (obviously), old sailors fancy work with ropes and I have a bit of a passion

for old but good technology like kerosene pressure lamps and stoves.

I came to Australia little more than 3 years ago from Germany.

After 3 years in Australia I could not find a reasonable argument to go back to Germany  :huh: , so I stayed in Oz and followed my heart.

 

That´s it! OK not completely but enough for now I reckon ;)

 

Cheers Chris

"I reckon"? Is that a German expression or an Australian expression? Or is it maybe a mathematical or geographical expression? I've spent time in Germany and Australia, and I would not mind spending some more time in both. Welcome to the Land of Alamy.

Hello,

thank you for your welcome!

 


 

I reckon:

It is a casual way of saying, "I think". As in,
"I reckon it might rain later."
"I reckon its going to be a hot summer."
"I reckon its time to throw a shrimp on the barbie." There is a big misunderstanding about the last one! Nobody I know would throw a shrimp on the barbie! It is called "A PRAWN" here. 

There are some things over here like: "Dried like a dead dingos don...!"  (means very thirsty)

 

Cheers C.
