One of my docs is Austrian and loves it here, says she has no intention of ever going to a cold country again.

She says that included NZ & Tassie.

My GP in the UK was actually Australian and had no intention of returning but her practise was in Bath so hardly surprising.
Of course I will be accused of making this up no doubt.

It's all the bacteria living on the coral - always gets infected. I used to snorkel a lot when I was young and always had festering coral cuts.

I'd find another dentist if I was you! I've had 8 appointments with mine over the last 6 months and haven't even spent half that amount
