Down under tomorrow

Howdy!

So I'm taking off to Australia tomorrow for 6 months. Going to be around the Melbourne area. Any advice? Currently no job and pretty low on cash. I'll try to get along without working as long as possible, but I might have to.

My advice would be not to say "howdy"... You should start saying "g'day"!

Sleep in a Kangaroo's pouch to save some dough. You can be like that Kanghaskhan kid.

Work and learn on smaller farms. No payment, just for food and shelter. Then come back to Sweden and start growing organic weed.

The kangaroos pouch is a must-do, I'll definitely find a weak one that can't kick my ass.

G'day!

Ah ok, it's that farming project thing where you volunteer on farms worldwide?

I met a guy on an excavation this summer who did that in Australia as well. He recommends bringing a dog to maneur stacks because snakes like it there apparently.

You're WWOOFing, huh? Let us know how your stay goes. I, for one, would one day like to be a shepherd on a quiet mountainside, playing a bamboo flute in the thin mist.

Yes, WWOOFing it is. But dealing with Aussies seems pretty lengthy, just like Swedes. Can't give you a straight answer. :P Out of 3 jobs I got one so far.

Make sure you invest in some sticky shoes, otherwise you'll fall off the planet.

Bring lots of money. You have no idea how expensive everything is around here. Especially Melbourne.

That said, good choice, Melbourne is the best. Though the farms aren't really "near" it, Australia is a big place.
