To be honest, I haven't found it to be humid, but perhaps it's because we face the ocean. Get your speedos on and get down to the beach.

No never been to Perth, l'm not judging it just seems to get more compaints on the MBTUK forum then other parts of OZ.

If you are talking about Denvers post Jo, 'he' is a she and Perth is her home town.

Cafe culture is none existant in alot of places in oz too. You can't get a meal here after 9pm most places and coffee out of the question. YOu sound like the shoe doesn't fit. Understandble time to come home methinks. I hope you enjoy being back in Perth when you get there.

Um.... I'm struggling with this one a bit too! From what I have observed/experienced, Perth actually shuts down almost completely at about 10pm latest. No coffee culture there then! In fact, me and a couple of friends set out to go to a restaurant last Monday, only to find that everywhere was closed! We ended up with fish and chips back at mine! I've never know such a dead place at night - especially in the beastly burbs!!

OH went to get Chooks last week and he walked in at 8.36pm and the bloke said "sorry we shut at 8.30!!!" Couldn't believe it, he came in shouting and saying a few unmentionables (after driving miles to get KFC) including,"what is wrong with this f****** place"

Went for a meal at Christmas to Portofinos with some friends that were over from the UK. Finished the meal at about 9.30 and thought we'd go to the Breakwater Tavern for a drink - maybe not, it was closing because there was nobody in there!!!!

What a great social scene there is to be found in Perth!!

My job in uk pays 4 times the oz rate so maybe go to bali and meet my son there. Age could also be a factor when migrating eh. I am 46 now, maybe adjusting would be easier 30 years ago.
I've often wondered the same thing, but we are in NSW and lust after Perth! Or basically anywhere but here. I'm fast coming to the conclusion that nowhere here will do, square peg in a round hole if you get my drift.

Hope you get a good price at the Auction, if you do are you going straight back to the UK or somewhere else in OZ.

Totally! It's simply a fact that some of us just don't 'fit'. We're probably just too English and cannot fit in to the Aussie culture.
