Freight to Australia is absolutely insane. I just got sticker shock on a few things to my friend there.
Lol... this made me to remember when I received a Commonwealth 12D turntable from Downunder, a couple of years ago, I found inside the (bruised, battered) double carton box... a dead spider, a BBBBIIIG, hairy one;-) and an eucalyptus leaf... VERY Aussie!
For me shipping to Italy is the most surreal. Once your package arrives in Italy it drops into a wormhole only to emerge months later at its destination.
