Why Millions of Foreigners Choose to Live in Melbourne

Retirees and immigrants choose to make Melbourne their home — and for very valid reasons. The city is one of Australia’s friendliest, and several factors make it a good place to plant roots. Low Cost of Living Living in Melbourne can be 30-50 percent less expensive than living in New York or Miami. The city is home to more than 100,000 Americans — most of them fleeing the high costs of necessities and day-to-day living in the US. Dining out costs 30-50 percent less (compared to US prices), while leisure activities cost less than half. Close to a million retirees from the UK also chose to spend the rest of their days in Melbourne. Renting a small 3-bedroom apartment in London can cost £3,000 (A$5,200), but a house in West Melbourne’s suburbs can go for less than £1,800 (A$3,000).

How Australia Becomes the Ideal Retirement Destination

Australia is home to more than a million former UK residents. The country is home to 20 percent of the UK’s ex-pat retirees, and more are heading down under for a multitude of reasons. Weather Britons will go halfway around the world to escape the constant rains of London. While it certainly rains in Australia, it’s nowhere as frequent compared to the UK and certainly not all-year-round. Rain is limited to a few months between November and March. Of course, with those months coinciding with summer, rain is welcomed as a respite to the heat. Winters down under are mild, and only a few places in the south experience snow. Retirees with joint pain/problems welcome the warmer summer as long as they can escape the harsh pangs of winter. Cost of Living A move to Australia can save most UK residents 20 to 30 percent in monthly expenses. Almost everything is cheaper in Australia, except for a few grocery items. Dining out can cost 10 to 50

Amazing Reasons to Get Your Kids Connected with Nature

Gone are the days when most children would get excited to go home from school because they can play outside again. Instead, they now look forward to being allowed to use their smartphones and other electronic devices the most, and call it “playtime.” Not to be biased, mobile apps and games have some cognitive benefits, too. To name a few, watching age-appropriate educational videos help kids gain new knowledge about a certain topic and some games aid in developing problem-solving skills. However, no matter how much digital technology improves to benefit children, they can never have the same characteristics as nature.

However, as ‘safe’ as those two options seem, they still have their disadvantages. Simply using the old piggy bank method can cause a problem in the circulation of money on the market. While keeping your money in a bank means it has a slow interest rate, your money is safer but not growing. Thankfully, the trendsetters of this decade, the millennials, are looking to more business-savvy options for their money. 1.
