We rented an apartment through VRBO, which worked out amazingly. It was very centrally located so we were able to walk almost everywhere, and it was so great to have a kitchen.

We were only there for ~4 days so we largely did kind of touristy stuff that would be exploitable via Trip Advisor - saw an opera at the Opera House, spent a morning in the botanical gardens, walked to the bridge and around the harbor, went to the Art Museum (which we loved), chased down good food (which was everywhere!), found a very fun virtual reality place that the kids loved, spent time in an amazing book stores. We LOVED the city and 100% will try to get back there again.

You’ll want to make some choices based on weather - if you mean our winter and their summer, it will be HOT, which could affect how much you want to be outdoors.

Hello!
I am currently a substation design electrical engineer 1.

I am making $71k a year from a large Consulting firm.

I have a bachelors and masters degree in Electrical Engineering. I have passed the FE & PE exams, I am an EIT, and I have a year of experience outside of school. Three internships as an engineer while I was in school.

I feel like I am underpaid and would like to know the thoughts of others. I feel undervalued in comparison to what other companies over that do the same work.
