      I love when people say its got to be better. Why ? Unfortunately the world seems to have gone to pot, I'm not sure where you are going to find 'better', I guess it depends on what your definition is.

      Hi and welcome to the forum

      We escaped the UK for a better life nearly 5 years ago,, since arriving in Brisbane we havent looked back, its everything we wanted and more, of course there is still stuff that annoys the hell out of you and it costs a fair few quid to get here but its well worth it for me and my family.

      Good luck to you ...often a move to a different country or even area is all you need to make life better...new horizons!

      Hi and welcome to the forum. If you have the right frame of mind any country can work for you. We moved to Aus approx 8 years ago now (it must be a long time as I've started to lose count) we were in Melbourne until recently when we moved to Cairns, it's the best move we have ever made for us and our family. A different country isn't for everyone and for some their home country still pulls on the heart strings.
