I bought a new life..
A couple of years ago, I bought tickets to a music festival in California. A little pricey at $250US, but it was Rage Against the Machine's first live show in around seven years.
Only problem is I live in Australia...
So $250 quickly turned into another couple of grand for a plane ticket, $150 for a passport application and another $50 for a copy of my birth certificate so that I could even get the passport. Oh, and travel insurance, taking time off work etc etc.
In the end, I did what any intelligent person would do. I quit my job, applied for a Canadian work permit (amazingly, the cheapest part of the whole ordeal!) and moved to Vancouver after the festival.
Since then I've seen most of North America and have just got back to Australia after spending six months in Europe. I plan to see more of Europe next year with my girlfriend, an American who I met at Disneyland in LA and now live with in Melbourne.

Best $250 I ever spent. I meant the ticket. Not my girlfriend.

"Fuck you I won't do what you tell me!"
"Excuse me.. Wembley Arena is non-smoking".
"Oh sorry."

I'm quite the Rage fan myself. "Sleep Now In The Fire" best use of the word "Yeah!" in any song ever, got a pretty great video too.
