I'm in Melborne right now... but i have to come back on friday. :(

Auzzie land is lots of fun. Everyone is friendly and out for a good time. The only thing I found here is that it's alittle more expensive then being in toronto. For me the problem is, when I'm not at work and on vacation, I SPEND TOO MUCH MONEY!

So if you're saving cash to come, think about how much money you would spend on a weekend. Then consider that how much you'll spend on average every day or two if you're not careful. Clubnites included I found I spent about $60+ a day here when I went out morning till next day. Otherwise I tried to keep it down to about $40 a day. (movies/galleries/food etc)

for food alone, I highly suggest shopping at a safeway and making your own meals. Even if its just sandwiches for lunch. Otherwise you'll spend all your cash in food.

its alot of fun down here, but make sure you have access to more money incase you run out.

oh another word of advice. GET AN INTERNATIONAL POWER ADAPTOR! the voltage here is 220. It'll fry the transformer in anything you plug in..... I had to spend $50 on a plug transformer that steps the power down from 220 to 110. I'm sure it would've been cheaper to buy it in toronto and bring it down. :(

oh for anyone who'd wanna move here.....

if you like it... you'll never come back. if not. Melborne is like being in toronto. BUT the whole city reminds me of toronto on Lithium. It's hard to explain, but this is the second time I've been here and I miss toronto still.

My #1 gripe about melborne. Very little western styled multiculturalism. It's almost non existant here. no mexican or west indian resturants that REALLY represent. Not a real latin or italian scene. Everything is like a lite version of what we have in toronto.

Otherwise its great here, if it wasn't so far, I'd consider moving here.

Melbourne was cool! I stayed there for a week. St. Kilda is a nice place to hang out.
If you are in Oz for a while I would definitely recommend going to Queensland. Its beautiful and very laidback. Not to mention the Goldcoast. Awesome beaches!
I will probably be moving to Brisbane the end of October. Australia is great and I highly recommend anyone to go.

not sure how to spell it but they have "duf" or "doof" parties (do we have them here?? do we call them that??) where there are decks and instruments and stuff and it's kind of like a jam with a dj ... fun stuff.

When I was in Melbourne I did see posters for Kenny Ken and Skibadee performing at a club together. The name of the club I don't remember, and the people I stayed with were broke so we didn't end up going to it. There was also a cafe type place in St. Kilda that had DnB playing when I walked past it.

It'll come alot faster if you just try and forget about it, rather than counting down every painstaking day of dreary cold bitter toronto ;)
