After living in the UK for 11 years, we spent a year travelling around OZ, NZ and the USA in a bid to establish which of the 3 we were best suited to and it must be said, the States won hands down. We love the scenic beauty of this country which is so diverse, we love the fact that you can chose to live in any number of climatic zones, we love that here in the States we can give our son a similar environment to go up in that we had as youngster (many, many years ago that is!) and lastly, that the opportunities here are endless. Someone once said to me that the USA is all about convenience and having lived here now for almost 4 years, I couldn’t agree more. The worrying part however is that it is almost too easy over here (if that could be classed as a bad thing). Although a part of me will always long to return home, this is not a bad place to be until (or perhaps, if) that opportunity arises.
