G0ldfinger Posted June 19, 2008 Report Share Posted June 19, 2008 OFF-TOPIC: Let's say someone offered me a job in Australia where I could earn 25%-30% more than here in the UK (at present exchange rates). The job is objectively seen better, a step up. What are the main advantages and disadvantages of living in Australia? + more sun + Aussieland is a commodity based economy, i.e. more stable than the UK in the near/midterm future. + harder currency (because of commodities demand) + adventure/something new + less crowded + I can afford a house with a garden, and actually use the garden - far away from everything (family, friends) / expensive visits - I like my current job (risk of change) - sometimes too hot to walk around outside - Aussieland, more a car-based economy like the US [wife will get fat (her words)] What about price levels (food etc.), healthcare, and taxes? What about 'child-friendliness'? In the UK nurseries and schools are a major rip-off IMO. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
