Then I saw a documentary a few months ago showing how Lego for adults actually saved Lego from going broke many years ago.  Adults building all kinds of new stuff pulled the company out of the doldrums and gave them a whole new lease on life.

And after visiting the BrisBricks fan expo last weekend in Brisbane, I can confirm that adults like Lego LOADS more than any kid ever could!!  Read on – I have actual proof of Continue reading

How To Cut Your Transport Costs In Australia

transport costs in Australia

Since being home we’ve really noticed how expensive everything in Australia is. Of course we are comparing these costs to those in countries with a lower standard of living, lower basic wages and far less development than we have in Australia.

Many of our travelling friends have also commented on how expensive Australia is and the damage it will do to their travelling budgets!

To combat this and help a few people out I thought I would start a series of posts of cheap stuff to do in Australia. Cheap eats, places to Continue reading
