alison BS: travelling - Mexico or Australia? (17) RE: BS: travelling - Mexico or Australia? 20 Jul 06


Hi Laura,

speaking as someone who lives in Oz (again)....I reckon it depends on how much time you have.

Australia is a huge country and it takes a long time to travel around unless you're willing to fly everywhere (costly!!). That's OK if you don't mind taking your time and driving long distances (however our petrol prices have just jumped again to the highest I've known here yet - something to consider if you intend to drive - everywhere is a long way away and so lots of money will be spent on petrol).....

but if you're pushed for time and Mexico is smaller to get around......

also if you're into your ancient temples etc...... Oz doesn't have much, Mexico does..... coming from Ireland and being someone who loves poking around in old ruins (shut up 'Spaw) I still get a kick out of it when Ozzies tell me "this building is really old its almost 200!!"

beasties - yep we have heaps... but you don't see many of them. I've been here 15 years, and only seen 2 snakes in the wild, no funnel webs spiders, or red backs, or sharks, ........

personally I'd love to see Mexico, (but then I'm into ancient sites.)

Australia is great but its a long way to come if you don't have the time to spend checking it out properly.

do your sums, see what time / money you have, both countries would be wonderful.
