It depends what point of view your asking for? Politics? Weather? Economy?

Talking of Aussie tourism... It seems the "So where the bloody hell are you?" advert is finally allowed to be shown here in the UK. A few months ago, I heard it was banned, but yesterday I saw it twice on two different channels.

Even though I have never been to Australia, it is close to the top of my list of "Best Nations". The relaxed but also hard working lifestyle that so many Aussies seem to enjoy is what sets the country apart from others, in my opinion. Work hard, play hard seems to be what many folk down under stick to.

I'll go there... some day. With a bit of luck I'll get to ride on the back of a lovely new A380 plane with a lovely, female Aussie cabin crew (I added the "female" part to stop the wise jokes) That's if they ever get the damn plane ready for production!

A lot of my friends, including my relatives migrate there. Guess Australia has some sort of magnetism for people. For me I still love my country Singapore!

I wasn't, but the A380 isn't exactly planning on visiting soon either.

That sums up us Yorkshire folk *so* well!

Fantastic!

I just watched it again, and it seems Yorkshire Airlines gives a 40" seat pitch as standard. Where do I book?
