    Would It Be Easy to Do?

    I Wanna Be An Aussie!

    I went to Australia on a post-college cultural exchange trip some 22 years ago. It was the BEST time I have ever had! That country is positively awesome with all the great beaches, the wildlife, the food, the friendly people. Going back to Australia is the #1 item on my bucket...

    The Big Plan

    Four years in medical school and then I'll have a bachelors degree as a pediatric nurse. I'll stay in England for no more than a year, scrimping and saving ready for the big day. When I have enough money in the bank to support myself, I'll look for nursing jobs in Melbourne and...

    How Much Should I Bring With Me

    How much money (US dollars) do you think would be sufficient to have at my disposal when I move to Australia to start my life over?  I know that a one way plane ticket will cost me about $2000... but really, how much do you think it would cost to start a new life?
