Driving along a main road lined with houses and businesses feels kind of exotic.

When travelling interstate, you notice that everyone appears to talk a little bit slower.

You change to your connecting flight in Sydney or Melbourne, and are impressed that your next plane has twin aisles.

You see a residential street somewhere else with a corner milk bar, and think: “How quaint!”

Mates visiting from out of town want you to take them out to an industrial area to go video-shopping.

You feel that Queanbeyan doesn’t really qualify as “interstate”, and aren’t sure whether Sydney or Albury qualify as “interstate”, either.

You turn up 20 minutes before a major event, and expect to get a park out the front.
