John Hinderaker, one of the four at Powerline, has just been visiting Australia and mostly Melbourne. He calls his post Back from the Outback which is not technically correct if you are visiting mostly Melbourne and a little of Sydney, but never mind: his final words of the post make up for everything:
Don’t be surprised if I refer to Australia from time to time in the future. It requires a rather epic journey to get there, but the trip is well worth it.
And not just a place to visit either since, for now at least, it is officially the most liveable city in the world as well.
