Posted:ummmmmmmmm........ not quite sure. thats a big task. first try and price up cheep hostels and flights and find out if you need visas or not. after you got a rough guess of how much it will cost try and make a contact over there mabey from hop or something so they can help you hook up a job.

never done it but i guess thats what you would need to do along with a million other things.

why down under?

Posted:umm...erm..umm ubbidea
You will both need working visas (thats a visa that lets you work, not a functioning visa). and a passport. and money. and lots of suncream.

That is all I can remember...

And watch out for the dropbears.

Posted:hmmm... well my only thought was that even if it's not raining pontcanna will prob be a mudpool, and there's only the grass to sit&put stuff on really. I don't reckon bute park would be that busy at this time of year, but whatever, i might not come down the train station, so will text someone to find out where you are. smile

how much rain needs to fall before you all decide to stay at home? confused after all one man's drizzle is another man's monsoon... if there were such a saying...
