    You know damn well I lack the Herculean strength to even attempt such a task.

    Why do you mock me? :(

    Most major businesses will take AMEX, but the smaller ones just cannot afford to. They charge businesses a stupid amount to accept the cards, more than many can afford.

    In all honesty though, apart from people driving on the opposite side of the road and a few other small differences, you'll probably find Australia to be pretty similiar to home in most populated areas.

    -waves arm wildly-

    Ooo! I went last summer. Hrm... if you go to a zoo where you can walk into the kangaroo exhibit, I suggest you pay attention to where the kangaroos are, ESPECIALLY if you have food. -cackles as I have a flashback-

    Um... I can't really give good advice without specifics on what you want tips on.

    And here was me thinking that I had randomly chosen two bikie gangs that weren't in conflict with one another, with the consequences of their actions shown on national television.


    Aren't I a fool?

    If you've taken your shoes off at any point during your stay....while sleeping for example make sure you turn them upside down and knock them and see if anything falls out. Putting your foot striaght into your shoe unchecked and disturbing a scorpian isn't fun.

    Yes, and no. I'm part Irish, and I can create a REAL Irish accent at will. Sometimes. :lol
