Travelling round Australia has been made into an art by an army of Grey Nomads. Grey Nomads are the older generation that have paid off their mortgage, proud owners of several grandchildren and a very large RV. Most have downsized their home to afford a huge, new home on wheels, taken retirement and now spend their days filled with Australia travelling. Nowhere is out of bounds to the new Grey Nomad adventurers.
These ‘silver surfers’ of Australia have learnt how to travel around Australia not just for a couple of weeks, or even a couple of months, but for as long as they have the ‘Wanderlust’ for Australia travelling. Grey nomads Australia style learn how to live frugally, store food hygienically in limited circumstances, wash clothes without a machine and work their way around the country getting all the funds they need to feed their passion. They are resourceful, tenacious and very happy.
Australia travelling on this scale is not for the faint hearted. The whole country is their oyster, and they take the best advantage of it! They learn how to drive their huge RV’s economically, how to know where to fuel up for the best price and all the roads that will help your gas to mileage ratio. They make learning how to travel around Australia a science, and art and a living. They make Australia travelling look like home and a life on wheels like the life of a king. They are a very happy and satisfied group of people making the Grey Nomads Australia the best kind of retirement club you can join.
Most of this lifestyle has been afforded due to new technology. The internet and GPS systems allow for military style precision in planning a route, finding a place to park up for the night and find some entertainment or work to keep it going. Modern technology also allows them to stay in touch with home. Whether it’s the monthly retirement check going into the bank, or pictures from home, a mail forwarding company like Pass the Post, can keep all the Grey Nomads in Australia happy, and in touch, with everything that matters to them. It’s almost like they have two homes – their mobile one, and their traditional one, all on the road together.read more
With the advent of the internet holding almost un-endless data, 24 hours a day 7 days a week, the right small business have the potential to become very successful. Many of today’s most successful companies started in someone’s garage, and grew to the multinational, billion dollar enterprises that they are today. The problem in the early days is company image.
The garage may be a great, cheap work space, but when you have to give out a mailing address, your home address may not be the most secure, or the most impressive. Using a mailing service is a wise choice to make sure you have a professional business mailing address that gives the company image you want to convey. Not only will you have the right address to look credible, confident and efficient, an online mailing service will cut out most of the drudgery of handling the mail. ‘Junk’ mail can be securely shredded, current mail scanned and forwarded to you and held until told what to do with it. International mail forwarding services can do this for any amount of mail coming in from all over the world making sure you see it as soon as it comes in.
International mail forwarding services also have the ability to send mail to multiple users all over the world at the same time, so whatever its purpose, you can all look at it together. Another useful feature is being able to consolidate parcels and documents to send all over the world, so you don’t have to worry. There’s nothing like peace of mind when you have the right international mail forwarding services.

Up until this generation became glued to anything that is backlit, the mark of a friendship was who you sent cards and postcards to. Receiving mail from someone still leaves a warm glow today as they have taken the time to think of you, buy a card, then take the trouble to mail it. There is nothing like a mail to make you feel loved. Emails, ecards and text messages just don’t evoke the same feel. When you’re working abroad looking out for the mail always gets your heart racing for news of home and opening your email folder never quite has the same effect.
Media would have you believe that mail is a dying industry with the advent of the digital age. It has slowed down, but sending a packet of chewing gum and a bicycle for your birthday by email presents quite a challenge, and some people still value something they can hold and display. Postcard mailing services all over the world have taken on online mailing services, and are holding out quite nicely, thank you very much!
The main reason the two can work together is that they serve two different functions. A postcard mailing service sends out postcards as a physical thing, some even make an industry out of it, and an online mailing service delivers that postcard to a person wherever they are in the world. The online mailing service offers an indispensable service, like Pass the Post, where the physical mail is scanned in and sent as electronic mail to wait until it is collected by the recipient. Those working abroad, away from home for a while or slow traveling round Australia can all access their mail and never miss out on a thing.
Mail may not be around in the huge volumes it used to be, but it still exists and fills a necessity where electronic delivery fails. People, and businesses, will always send postcards. Online mailing services in Australia will only get busier with people now more mobile and eager to travel. And as people travel, they, of course, will send more postcards.
Australia has it all; Sunshine, hospitable communities and beautiful scenery. It’s no wonder that people from all over the globe are clamouring to move there in their droves. Australia is the number one destination for emigrants for most countries of the world. There are many projects abroad, but ones in Australia are the most sought after.
There are thousands of sandy beaches that await you, a relaxed lifestyle and all the beauty spots you could ever want just around the corner, so for many, a better quality of life is the main reason why people make the move to Australia. With its community feel, opportunities for outdoor leisure and relatively low crime rate makes moving to Australia seem to be that place to raise a family. For some, the move comes when their work secures projects abroad and they need to move, the fact that it is a beautiful place just makes the transition easier.
Making the transition, whether you move to Australia for a better quality of life or a career move, can sometimes be a wrench. Family has to be left behind, business matters can be hard to settle and in general everything takes twice as long as it should have. It can be hard to separate when the time comes, so setting up a dependable online mail forwarding service in Australia is a top priority. Having an Australian mailing address is a smart way to apply for jobs, or get the mail quickly. The mail is delivered to a secure mail box, then scanned and delivered to you electronically so you get it instantly. No long waiting for the postal system, or missing deadlines and other possibilities. And more than that, your mail will follow you wherever you go. If you need one, or two, temporary addresses before you find your home the post will simply be held until you have settled into your home.
An online mail forwarding service like Pass the Post offers you the security and peace of mind to know that you are in touch where ever you are. If you are in transit and need documents, we can arrange to have them forwarded to you or provide digital copies as soon as we get them. There is a lot of paperwork during the whole process of emigration and all of it needs prompt attention.
Whatever your reasons for a new start in Australia make sure you are in touch with everything that is going on around you, with an reliable and dedicated online mail forwarding service.
Australia is a vast and beautiful country. It is world renowned for its sunshine and hospitality and has thousands of transient travelers flock there for a long stay and has thousands of locals that spend a large portion of the year wandering just for the sake of it, around Australia. Why do people take so much time, and money, to travel Australia? What is the pull of the vast country that is it’s almost its own continent?
Most people travel Australia simply because they can. They love to travel and meet new people, experience new cultures and ‘live the life’ that is offered in a new world. Gone are the days when travel was reserved for those who earned high incomes, had travel jobs or were born into a privileged class. It used to be only the mailing service in Australia that regularly ran around the country, but now people do it for fun. And the benefits are clear. Mark Twain said, “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.” Australia is the most hospitable and ‘happening’ place to be.
Ironically the one thing that used to be the only intercoastal endeavour, is the one thing that has given people a new freedom to travel them. Mail forwarding companies have allowed people to close the gap on the vast distances between cities and cultures, by keep people in control of their affairs whilst they travel. Pass the Posts online mail forwarding service allows people the luxury of traveling where they want to, even without plans, and still be in touch with their money, responsibilities and families. It also keeps their money, responsibilities and families in touch with them. Coupled with cheaper travel these days, and the internet offering information, booking ability and even employment in other areas – why stay at home?
It may seem like a small thing, but mail forwarding companies are dedicated to giving people the freedom to travel, whether it’s from the other side of the country, or from the other side of the world. It doesn’t matter where the person is, as the mailing service is delivered digitally and waits patiently until the owner can log on. A mailing service such as ours can even take business mail and secure or shred it as directed, so a vacation or long trip can be taken and still have your steering at the helm of the ship. Mail forwarding companies have made a huge in road into closing the gap of vastness, that is Australia, and giving people the freedom to be who, and where, they want to be.read more
