So instead of the cops that taser people, tackle people and pull guns on people, we have these guys:

SO want's to move over there. I'm terrified to fly though so hopefully i'll get over that fear when we go there for a holiday because if we actually end up moving i will have to fly to come back and see my family lol.

Aw that's cool, what area is he thinking? The flight isn't too bad, I think it's like 4 hours from Sydney to Auckland? It's only bad when you hit turbulance :) I liked Australia from what I saw of it, but i could NOT handle that heat every day. I'll take the mild NZ summer over that any day :D

I'm not sure where he said (we have never been before so that's why we want to go there for a holiday and check it out first, see what places are nice) I've never been on a plane before, just the thought of it scares me lol.



We were going to take a small flight one state over last year to buy a car and i pussed out last minute before booking it because i was freaking out, SO ended up going alone.



I hate the heat! The past few days have been in the 40's i think. It kills us because our house is a tiny hot box, no insulation and a crappy air conditioner that doesn't cool the house down properly.

Ugh i would literally DIE if I had to put up with that. We went on holiday to Cairnes one year, and it was nice and all but I spent morning til night in the pool at the hotel because I was dying of heat exhaustion lol.
I was terrified of flying before I went on a plane for the first time. It's not that bad once you actually get up there. More people are killed by donkeys annually than are killed in plane crashes, so it's pretty safe :P

Hmm true, I didn't think of it like that. I hate being in enclosed spaces, more so since I got pregnant for some reason. Is there any way you could do a test run before you did the overseas flight? Maybe flying to visit rellies in another state or something?
I can definitely think of worse places to be stuck. We have some pretty awesome pubs here :wink:

Well every time we go to book a short "test flight" when we can afford it, I back out. When SO went to pick that car up he was at the computer about to book my ticket and my heart was racing and i just couldn't do it.



Maybe if I get really drunk first lol. I hate drinking but if it would calm my nerves enough to get through it i'd do it. I don't think you can do that though which sucks.

I don't think they'll let you on when you're hammered, but maybe a few to steady the nerves? They serve alcohol on planes don't they?

Of course you'd say that lol you're biased!



Ugh talking about it has got me all excited to go now. I wish we could win the lotto or something so we could pay all of our bills off and just go already. It's been like over a year since we started talking about it :(.
