Dear Sachin,

We've already realized how miserable this long-distance thing can be. It's much more pleasant to think about the future than mull about the fact that we see each other for 48 hours a month on average. And what about the future? Will we fulfill my dream of traveling the world, making documentaries and saving the lives of people in need? Or will we settle down with 4 dogs, 6 cats, 12 bunnies, and a turtle in the Ukraine like you've always dreamed? I come to you with a post about another option: Let's move to Australia. Not that you need convincing why, but here's a list of reasons...

12. We love beaches. The whole country is a freaking island.

11. We already know how to apply sunblock...
... so that whole "hole in the ozone" thing shouldn't be a big deal.

10. It is a well-known fact that students of a higher education in Australia take a much more laid back view towards academics than we do in the United States.

What this means for us: I can freaking coast through my PhD dissertation.

9. Australia's shortage of doctors means they are recruiting from overseas.

8. Australia has a landscape unlike anywhere else in the world.
Ayers Rock

7. All Australians are incredibly good-looking.
Orlando Bloom

Hugh Jackman

Miranda Kerr

Emile de Ravin

6. One word: Koalas

5. "Hey Sach, do you want to go to the Philippines for a mini-vacation?"

4. Baz Luhrmann, Kath & Kim, Roy & HG

3. Two more words: New Zealand

2. We could live in a place like this.

1. Australians are badass. And so are we.
