Re: Odd practice..

The other one that intrigued me was that my Australian cousins were able to bank leave allowance over several years and then take e.g. a couple of months off in one big run, as opposed to every job I've had in the U.K. where I've been lucky if I've been able to carry 5 or ten days maximum from one year to the next, with anything more than that being 'lost'.

The Aus approach seems like a much better system to me - I keep wondering what the downside is about working in Australia, and I can't find it apart from everything that moves, and half the things that don't, trying to kill you.
