So when this post goes live, our friends Ben and Oui, may have started their journey to move from Sydney to Melbourne.
They were planning on leaving “early” to start their drive but I have no idea if they will actually manage it.
We met them at PAX 2014 for the first time through Michael and Sian and we have developed a great friendship. We have spent a lot of time with them since (both IRL and in Azeroth!) and every year at PAX we try and convince them to move to Melb.
I never actually thought it would happen, but omg it is! They are going to live with us to get out of the rental trap and save for their own home. Melb still has something amounting to a reasonable housing market when compared to Sydney.
I am excited for them and I hope they have an easy drive down, not sure if their stuff will arrive before them or not. It is such a massive change for them and their lives and hopefully will only be positive for their future.
