Well I would guess asking this on an Aussie Forum ( this part anyway ) you may get biased answers.

Im aware that migration to Canada from uk is very protracted.

For some reason New Zealand, always comes in 2nd place. To Australia, I havent been so know not why.

USA is well ... nice place to visit, but sit still for too long and you either get raped, mugged, shot, or eaten by some fat bastard in a Macdonals queue.

I'd live in the place where we have a good income, a decent standard of living, a nice house+neighbourhood, my child isn't a minority at school, and there is good access to the great outdoors, and my family is happy and healthy.

So I guess I'm saying it's not the country per se, it's the geo-socio-economic circs at any particular location and period of time.

You are absolutely right and that is the kind of place I am trying to find. I am looking for a place where I can make a decent salary and we can have a decent living standard and people would not look at us differently because we are not white or black and we have accents when we speak English. Thanks.

If I had the finances to do so, I would like to spend 6 months in Namibia (voluntary work on safari) and 6 months in Australia.

We seem to have found it in a small town in the Upper North Shore, about 35kms out of Sydney.

PM me if you want more info.....
