I have to say though, he's working in Sydney CBD now - when he was working at Chatswood, it was probably just over the boundary of what was acceptable - I guess Mascot (his most recent location before the CBD) is as far as he'd want to travel again.
You tell Mr Dreamy that if he wants a shorter commute to come live with me. I only travel 38 minutes on the train to the CBD.

That's silly, it's the wrong CBD. Fairly sure Sydney Trains don't get that far.

I did mention Dorothy's kind offer to Mr D and he said "I'm sure it'll be a bit longer than 35 minutes to get to work".
If she can find him a job in Perth too, it could be on.

That's similar to the horror stories I've heard about London commutes.

You could get from Cronulla to the CBD within an hour nowadays, right?

I think you could always do Cronulla to Town Hall within the hour, you certainly could a couple of decades back when I did a stint there.

I don't think times have changed that much. Its still about 50 mins. It could be quicker if they popped in an express train but there doesn't seem to be the appetite.

London commutes are strange. It takes as long to get from Balham to Bank on the tube as it does from Tonbridge to Bank on the train. However, the cost hike on public transport from living in commuter belt may not be worth it.

?

3 hours a day is fairly ridiculous, where on earth did they work?

Or did they mean 1.5 hours each way?

Takes me around 40 minutes door to door

When I lived in London it took me 90 minutes, so 40 minutes with a gorgeous nearby beach thrown in for good measure, is a win-win my eyes
