    Which North American city is the best place for summer?

    Hard call, I loved San Diego in the summer, I'd probably choose somewhere near the sea on the west coast. Whatever you do don't go to NYC in the peak of summer, talk about humid. about 9 years ago

    do i have to use my visa debit card in usa or can i use my normal eftpos card??

    I'm not sure about at point of sale. But when I'm in the US, I have no problems going to an ATM and pulling out a chunk of cash with my savings card. As long as your savings card has the Maestro symbol you'll be able to use it at most ATMs in USA, you get hit with a fee, but I doubt it's any worse than the international credit card fees I get hit with. I generally use my VISA for anything big, and keep cash on hand for the smaller stuff. USA is extremely credit card friendly though, even for smaller stuff. about 9 years ago

    What is cheapest/best way for a family of 4 to get to Beecroft from Sydney airport tom @ 9am

    A hard question! Domestic terminal to Beecroft costs $17.20 for an adult, or $11.10 for child student. This comes out at $56.60 for a typical family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids), and taking around an hour with a transfer between trains at Central. The downside is you've got to drag your bags around between trains. With a cab, you're probably looking at $90+ (possibly worse at 9am), but you can just get in the cab and not have to worry about bags/transfers. It's a hard call, but I'd probably catch the train. While a bit inconvenient you won't have to worry about traffic, and the cost is fixed and cheaper. You don't have to worry about Sydney traffic either. over 9 years ago

    Where to go for good sushi in the Hobart CBD?

    Once upon a time I would have always said Takagi ... but then they grew to be relatively inconsistent (crunchy rice etc.) Sush is ok and consistent, but a little bland. Sakura is decent and cheapish, and relatively consistent (though I've the occasional piece of Tuna that might have been a bit old). I'd vote Sakura overall though. But I wouldn't say I know of a 'good' and 'consistent' sushi place in the CBD these days. over 9 years ago

    what's the best/fastest way to get from UWS parramatta to sydney?

    http://www.uws.edu.au/campuses_structure/cas/campuses/parramatta covers the alternatives pretty well. The train is 5-10 minutes walk but runs a limited timetable, so it really depends on the time of day you need to travel. There's buses as well, but, well ... buses are rarely the best way to get anywhere around here. over 9 years ago
