    The Australian dollar hovered around 93 US cents on Sunday.

    We truly are the lucky country, and a nation of go getter's too.

    Come on ,Pattison. Now it even more expensive for me to visit Australia. The last time, I spend nearly 2000 Malaysian Ringgit for a 5 day trip to Darwin. And all I got is a backpacking bed with a Japanese girl sleeping on top of my double decker bed. I love to visit again, but if this Aus Dollar keep rising I probably need to visit other country instead.

    Yeah it's excellent, I can buy a lot of stuff online now and the postage won't bite me in the arse. But as always, the British pound is still king of the hill.

    On a random "thought I'd ask" note, does anyone know how to set up a postal box in the US that redirects the mail to Australia? UPS doesn't respond to overseas queries and they didn't have an international phone number last time I checked.

    Gosh it wasn't too long ago that the Aussie Dollar was worth two-thirds of the U.S. dollar. How things do change in international currency markets.

    So we should see a huge increase in hot Aussie dudes visiting the US this summer.

    Looking forward to that. WOOF.
