I’m worried, I don’t mind this Rory bloke who is running for PM. He looks funny so I was all ready to mock him but he actually sounds sensible. I don’t even give a shit about the dirt his opponents dug up for the occasion. Am I getting old and becoming a curmudgeon?

Say Bula for me. I'm sure you won't want to leave.

Will do. There’s only one slight problem....I seem to have left my white chinos behind, so I’ll be a tad underdressed.

OK. I can state for a fact that Melbourne has shops. Pretty sure Fiji does as well.

But if you are outside the normal size range of Melbournians or Fijians, then you have much bigger problems than your wardrobe.

Last time I was in Melbourne in June, people were rugged up , wearing boots and overcoats, complaining about how cold it is, the local free newspaper had a article about "marves" (scarves for men!).

And the weather?? 18 C and some showers. The London forecast on the same day? 18 C and some showers. And what did some showers mean? It rained for about 20 minutes every day then the clouds completely disappeared and it was blue sky the rest of the day.

(Melbourne's weather is notoriously changeable, so you might not get this. However, if you are looking for hailstones the size of golf balls -or indeed venomous spiders the size of golf balls then Sydney is the place for you.)
We didn't see any nasties when we were in Sydney, just huge cute bats

I know those bats in the botanical gardens!! You don’t want to spend too long standing underneath them when they are hanging from the trees.

So long as your shirts are bright enough they won't mind.

Do get a Meke band to serenade the Prof if you get the chance, they are as smooth as chocolate.

Safe trip.
