The only reason Id go to Melb anymore is too see my family. I used to go over for the footy but cbf doing that anymore for whatever reason Ive lost my interest in it. Other than family and footy Melb has the same basic stuff I can do here. Syd same except a harbour/bridge.

The switzerland and austrian alps are fricken awesome. But they arent near stockholm. Not a positive for stockholm. I agree adelaide has incredibly underrated beaches.
Stockholm has plenty of nice slopes too, i don't go there cause the difficulty level is too high for me.

Apologies you are from SA. Yeah ive never been and dont really care if I dont go.
Yeah this isnt a personal attack. Just an opinion. I dont actually want to go anywhere for at least a few years.

Maybe one day see Latvia where my dad was from but thats about it.

I sometimes think Id love to go to port Douglas or somewhere and just lay around but then I think I can lay around here and save $1k

And oh The river around the CBD is pretty gross, makes the Swan river look amazing in comparison

Melbourne is ok. As I've gotten older I don't like the city as much as I used to. I'm more of a nature loving person and it's not a great place for that.

It does have a great restaurant and Cafe scene, if you like your sport then it is certainly a great place to live, good PT and great bike trails as well.

Yeah I think if I went to Melb again Id rather see Yarra Valley, Mornington Peninsula non CBD areas. Just see more country areas. I spent pretty much teens to mid 30s going to Melb CBD and areas and seen most of it so maybe its lost its zing.

Be good to go to some Murray river towns

Agree, the cafe scene is fantastic, can't fault that. Being from Adelaide, i always enjoyed nature more though, the beaches, the surf, the sail, fishing and then great wine too. Anyway my post about Melb got nothing to do with the city itself being bad, to me since i left Australia, the population of Melbourne has grown by 800,000 and starting to resemble Sydney a bit. Roadworks everywhere, it has become unaffordable for most people to live.

the weather here is f’ed. , and it's all due to something called 'cyclonic gloom'. The bay traps hot air, clouds form, inland weather keeps the cloud in place. So, it can go three weeks of cloud during the winter months. Not good for the mental health. In summer is gets ******* hot (43) and winter is kinda pissweak at a low of 5/4, but the rain is what shits me. It never rains properly (rarely sometimes in summer due to extreme build up). It kinda drizzles, lightly, a lot!

There are great days, but they happen around half of the time as most other places. 83 days of full sunshine per year, compared with over double that in most other populated cities in Australia. Australia is a land of a deep blue open sky, but you miss out on that a lot because of this ******* cyclonic gloom weather system.

Oh yes. That too. Done that a few times thats why I left it out. Would love to explore the Otways (spelling?) national park.

oh man yes I hate the fact it never rains here in Adelaide. Id love a few more massive downpours a year
Yeah the Otways thats right. Can do treetops climb, abseiling and a zip line i believe. Apollo Bay is great- better than the busyness of Lorne- and plenty cafes etc.

The big tree... Mariners falls and lookout. . Koalas at Kennett river (thats where my mums from )

Ozarks. Was expecting great nature trails and nice scenic lake towns.

instead it was a dumpy swamp like lake surrounded by small hills and towns full of white trash hillbillies. good for boating. Prefer lake powell though.

Reminded me much of the lake town from the tv show called Ozarks.

there are only two definite cities worth visiting in the USA. New york and vegas with new orleans and washington dc a maybe depending on interests. none of the others are unique or interesting. ps. You dont go to vegas to gamble.
My favourite city in the US after New York is Pittsburgh. I also liked Boston.
