Re: Want to move back to Aus

Re: Vodafone PAYG

Thanks for all your replies. I'm still trying to track down someone currently using Vodaphone PAYG though (i.e. not on a contract). Anyone know anyone who fits that bill?

Re: What's everyone up to for Christmas?

Our first Christmas in Australia since 1988. In a caravan park in Noosa. No spaces but strangely quiet. No idea where everyone has gone. Maybe they are off visiting local friends and relatives.

Re: Flying back to UK

Qantas aren't flying that route at that moment as far as I know, so I think that is out. Even if they were, I am not sure that WA would allow you to transit (from Melbourne) there given the WA...
