    It is the best country on earth, but I'm a bit biased :)

    Australia, the country where everything is out to kill you.
    I'd go there in a heartbeat tho!

    Beats living in a shitty sea climate.

    Having lived for a couple months there, it's not THAT bad if you are one of the few places that aren't full of venomous or poisonous things who's only purpose in the food chain is to kill humans, although getting used to the aussie dialect alone takes a while, still, hilarious while you learn it:P

    PS: Pictures look nice, but try sticking your foot inside the seawater at those places and you'll probably encounter octopuses, crabs, pufferfishes, low-tide toads, etc. that can insta-kill you:rofl2:

    It's not that much the dying, but the fact that because so many dangerous things exist half the aussies turned into roughnecks (kinda like countryside Russians if you get what I mean)... funny at first, pain after a while when you have to tag along as they torture toads for fun with the excuse "hey, it's poisonous, so it's fine"!

    Go to Tasmania, the climate is near identical to the UK, except with adorable wallabies and tassie devils and temperate rainforest. Doesn't have castles though

    Are you living in Queensland?

    As we also say about Italy, it's indeed a nice country - too bad about the humans that attempt to rule it

    Tourists has sometimes strange behaviors:
    "I MUST have to see the OUTBACK and the NATURE" (They live mainly in Cities and has no Idea of Wild Life...)
    "Oh look at this cute Bird...i must TOUCH and PET it.....":rolleyes:
    Nature strikes back...why not.:evil:

    It's pretty much a real life Jurassic Park!

    Beautiful country, however when cows rank among some of the most dangerous animals in the UK i don't think i'd be cut out for Australian wildlife lol.

    Cows being considered dangerous is nothing. In Queensland where I stayed a while back even in the regular parks you go for walks you can find a kind of bird that's SO territorial it can start attacking and pecking your head literally poking holes in your skull! That's a COMMON bird to add... Quantumkitty will have to remind me the name of that stupid bird, it was half black half something else, can't remember, don't want to remember!

    Magpies. They only swoop for a few weeks in spring so you just have to worry about them then. And if you feed them they remember you, and spread the word to nearby magpies that you're cool, and you don't get swooped then.

    Also remember that we don't have bears or wolves or coyotes or any other large carnivore (except dingoes maybe). The only carnivores besides dingoes are small cute ones - eg quolls and tassie devils. No scary ones.
