And who said this wouldn't turn into a bun fight...

The streets are paved with chocolate.
Everyone looks like Jennifer Hawkins and Jesse Spencer
You will immediately become outdoorsy and drop 5 stone
You will quit smoking and drinking so much
You will learn to surf upon arrival
Everyone will welcome you with open arms and invite you round to barbies everyday
Your children will become wildy successful because hey this is the land of opportunity
