Re: Potential move to perth, like the rest of you!

I had a great boss in my last job in Oz who was also of the view that I had a job to do, and exactly what hours I used to get it done didn't really matter. Some times of the year I worked long, long...

Re: Difference between Melbourne and Sydney

Obviously this is all personal opinion but I'm honestly surprised to see that description of the city centre. The CBD is very compact, to me. I wouldn't have said even the inner suburbs were grey and...

We miss gold class too! We have been back once and managed to fit in a gold class trip, planning a return visit this year and also hoping to get to gold class!

Funnily enough, I had...

Re: 10 years since last trip.

Coffee has come a long way but has a long way to go! Bigger cities probably have better options although still plenty of bad cups around. Although people are very into takeaway coffees it still isn't...

Re: 10 years since last trip.

Without meaning to offend... Rhyl doesn't have the best reputation. In fact at work, the whole North Wales Coast tends to be considered a pain. I don't think it's a North/South thing at all, just...

Re: Doing "That" trip

Re: Australia is too bloody far away....from everything

I think some define success in too black or white a fashion, as well. We did 6 happy years in Oz, came back to the UK for a number of reasons which boil down to the UK suiting us better right now. I...

Re: British Graduate Moving to Australia (Big Fish in Small Pond)?

For someone who's 'technically an Aussie' it's strange that you've not heard of tall poppy syndrome.

I got pneumonia as a fit and healthy 27 year old in Aus. And I'd already had shingles that year! I honestly was fit and healthy outside those illnesses.
