    is traveling to Australia worth the long flight?

    To be honest the long flight isn't as bad as you imagine. You get tired and stressed, but really, if everything works out, it is just like a long train trip. I had my parents in law who had never left Europe come out to Australia for Christmas and they struggled with the flight but they loved Tasmania. If you are from Europe and can get a direct flight from a city close by to most Asian capitals, Qatar or Dubai, you are looking at 1 stopover. My advice would be to stop for a couple of days and check out a non-western country. Then you would normally continue to Sydney or Melbourne. If you are flying from a North or South American country you can get direct or stopovers very close to Australia (e.g. New Zealand) depending from where you are flying. over 8 years ago

    what would be the approx cost of living per week?

    When I was there, a year ago, it was about 2 Reais to 1 Aussie dollar. Rio is relatively expensive compared to most places in Brasil. If you are living in a hostel you can find dorms for R$20-25 a day, you can pay about double that for single rooms. Food is rather expensive in Rio but there are plenty of supermarkets and little hidden food places. If you are on a budget stay away from the general tourist eateries. You can get away with about R$500 or so a week living comfortably (that is about A$300 current exchange rate) over 10 years ago

    Recommended car hire companies?

    Jucy is pretty good. We hired a car there for 2 days on the North Island and it was very cheap and a great car. My mum, sister and wife hired a car through them on the South Island and said they loved it too. http://www.jucy.co.nz/ http://twitter.com/jucyrentals almost 10 years ago

    how to get to verona from venice

    Well the train from Venice to Verona is pretty easy. Just 2 hours direct (the slow and cheap one 7€) To get into the main centre it is a 15 min walk or a 2 min taxi ride from the train station. Verona is pretty small and you can find most things by walking around and just following main crowds. over 9 years ago
