    Berlin for three days in September with my wife and two kids (1 1/2 year old boy and 3 1/2 year old girl).

    For your kids, those are the big attractions. Don't forget there are two main zoos: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tierpark_Berlin and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berlin_Zoological_Garden There is also Kindercity but I think your children might be a bit young for that. Don't forget to take some time for your wife and yourself however to check out whatever interests you! about 8 years ago

    Just made it back to Europe and have some days to play with before meeting up with friends. I plan on Berlin, wonder about Hamberg?

    Just spoke to my girlfriend who was in both cities recently, she says: Berlin is fantastic. For some tips on what to see check out: http://answers.worldnomads.com/questions/germany/4303/one-day-in-berlin--where-should-i-visit-and-how-to-go-there As for Hamburg, the city is really nice, there is the Reeperbahn for nightlife (although a tad seedy). It's got a nice river so you can go sailing and such. There are some great churches there that you can climb the towers of and get a great view of the city. The fish markets are worth checking out too (if you like that sort of thing). about 8 years ago

    Teaching and living where? Should it be for love or money?

    Good question! I believe that if the work you are doing doesn't have some meaningful positive impact on peoples lives, then you can never find it truly satisfying. You can have that *and* money if you are lucky, but it can take work and you have to find a good balance. If you did take the higher paying job, would it be possible to use some of that extra money and feed it back into what you were doing before so you can have a bit of both. I guess it also gets a bit more complex depending on whether it's just you or if you have any dependants. Sounds like you are doing some good things for other people - even if you don't keep it up forever, good on you :). about 8 years ago

    where is the best place for breakfast in Sydney

    Best is a tough one. My favorite is probably Bills in Surry Hills (http://www.bills.com.au/) - simple food done to a really high standard. Corn fritters or just their scrambled eggs are a must. Also, people seem to answer this question a fair bit by suggesting Deus ex Machina in Camperdown - Both times I have been there thought the food has been simply average and no better. almost 9 years ago

    Where can I hire a tuxedo in Sydney?

    On the cheaper side, I just bought a tux for $250 from http://www.kellycountry.net.au/consumer/index.php in Erskineville. The jacket / pants were only $99 together, shirt $49 (pleated with a turn down collar), and the vest was $99 (not sure how much bow ties were as I already had one). Could probably get a cheaper vest but wanted something nice that I would probably wear for fun with other outfits. Basically I figured that I am going to need a tux every now and then so might as well buy something for about the same price as renting. almost 9 years ago

    Things for a couple to do in Port Stephens

    Just reporting back on what was good over there: Stayed at the Wanderers Retreat (http://www.wanderersretreat.com/) in a "tree house" it was a cabin up on stilts surrounded by trees and it was great. Also lots of wildlife around, like a koala up a nearby tree, a possum chilling on our balcony when we got back one night, and a kangaroo poking around right under us while we were having breakfast on the balcony. The only weird thing was the fact that it had a drop toilet even though it had a spa, but I suppose it was an eco cabin... The long beach to the west of Fishermans bay was kinda cool, as long as you don't mind the 4wd's and camels on the beach and dunes nearby but that was part of what made it cool. The beach is 35 miles long so you can do plenty of walking.... Tomaree lookout was pretty amazing - great views, and it wasn't too hard walk up the hill to get there. There were also some really lovely beaches nearby and I wish I had had more time to explore. We also took a ferry across the port and up the Myall River to Tea Gardens - the trip was great, and we saw lots of dolphins, but be warned that Tea Gardens is very very boring. Finally, we had a *really good* dinner at a place called Catch. http://www.shoalbayresort.com/catch-at-shoal-bay.aspx almost 9 years ago
