This is my last day of work in the UK. I've got touristy stuff left to do, then I'm off for the next country I work in. And this is where you come in. I'm interested in hearing everybodies opinion, should I come home to australia, or galivant off to canada.

I can't make up my own mind, this is your chance to convince me. This is not a binding vote, this is an opportunity to pursuade me one way or the other. If you want to make your opinion known to me alone, email me.

Bloody hell mate! What are you going to do with the bike?

We'll miss seeing you when we usually manage it!

Looking to sell the bike off. Either try and do a quick sale just before I leave the country, or leave it with one of my workmates to flog off when england starts getting proper spring weather.

i say go canadian
its like australia without being here
or do i need to give my answer in song?

Welcome to Canada, it's the Maple Leaf State.
Canada, oh Canada it's great!
The people are nice and they speak French too.
If you don't like it, man, you sniff glue.
The Great White North, their kilts are plaid,
Hosers take off, it's not half bad.
I want to be where yaks can run free,
Where Royal Mounties can arrest me.
Let's go to Canada, let's leave today,
Canada, oh, Canada, I Sil Vous Plait.
They've got trees, and mooses, and sled dogs,
Lots of lumber, and lumberjacks, and logs!
We all think it's kind of a drag,
That you have to go there to get milk in a bag.
They say "eh?" instead of "what?" or "duh?"
That's the mighty power of Canada.
I want to be where lemmings run into the sea,
Where the marmosets can attack me.
Let's go to Canada, let's leave today,
Canada, oh, Canada, I Sil Vous Plait.
Please, please, explain to me,
How this all has come to be,
We forgot to mention something here.
Did we say that William Shatner is a native citizen?
And Slurpees made from venison,
That's deer.
Let's go to Canada, let's leave today,
Canada, oh, Canada, I Sil Vous Plait.

Fuck off to Canada I say! Then home for a bit. Then somewhere else for a while. Rinse and repeat.

Travel while you're young and able. Post photos. Send cards. Write old fashioned letters to people but make sure you have fantastic adventures to rememember to your kids, grandkids, and when you're old in a nursing home.

If i were selfish...

I would say Canada because I am going there to work at the begining of April!

You may have heard somewhere (i may have said something on the mords list) but I have accepted a permanent position in Ottawa, Ontario. My proposed start date is the 31st of March. I was looking for a new job because they were shutting down the newcastle R&D group and all the work was going to Canada. The new Canadian R&D manager came to Australia and I got to have a chat to him and a week or so later he offered me a position!

I'll give you the full story in an email or something if you like.

So anyway depending on which part of canada you go to you might have some company.
