Just stay in well lit, crowded areas when you get off work and you're waiting for the bus/train. The city really isn't that terrifying.. lol. Just don't be stupid and wander into sketchy areas or rub people the wrong way and you'll be fine

Don't get annoyed if people bump into/ignore/cut lines in front of/arrest you. Just stay calm and go on about your business.

Apart from the arrest one.

You might need to fill in some forms with that one.

Don't take stranger's candy.


and don't give people money.

Like if someone says "Hey, do you have anychangE?" just say " nah im broke" and walk away.

you'll be good to go!

Don't take things too personally. If someone gives you a dirty look, they're probably just having a bad day. If someone tells you you suck at your job, ponder for a moment about it, but odds are, they're also just having a bad day, or a bad week, or a bad life, whatever.

i lived in byron for a long time, as well as all over the gold coast and tweed heads area, and i ALSO lived in a sydney for a decent time, and visit there often, so:

--byron bay is mostly pot and drunk guys bashing eachother up

--sydney is bad if you go FIVE HUNDRED METRES INTO THE DARK ALLEY then lay down on the ground, tie yourself up, and wait for like 3 weeks for some freak to show up. You'll be helped by some nice guy on the way most likely.

--like doggs above be toting, just stay in the populated, lit areas, ask the bus drivers or whoever else where the safest spots to travel are, tell them you aren';t familiar with the area, but don't act all retarded, just explain that you need to knwo the best route to your destination.

--avoid redfern, my dad was a constable there, and it has one of the highest crime rates for any aussie suburb. mostly drunk dudes and white guys bashing aborigines.

--john petrucci is the bomb diggity

Oh you'll be fine, just watch out if you're catching a train back late, I was coming back from the easter show last year with my little sister, and 3 blokes came onto the train walked straight past me and my sister and took a wallet and a phone off of the lady behind me, so just be careful, dont sit in a like empty carriage

gday i travel on public transport in perth most days of the week to get to uni.. however that is during the day, have an ipod on you, it keeps you to your own if a friendly person isnt sitting next to you or whatever. try not to look too much at the wiggers or schizophrenics or dodgey people... or maybe, if your afraid your ipod will get mugged, just have some dodgey cheap earphones that arent plugged into anything haha...

but it really isnt that bad, its an interesting thing
