Wink If not NZ, then where would you settle????

Hiya all.

just picking up some threads, and some have said that they cant see themselves staying in NZ, and others dont feel as though they are at 'home'.

So just wondering, if its not NZ, and you dont want to come back to the UK, then where would you go?????

Just interested as we may not get PR..... when the time comes.

But hope to

Thanks

Anna

I think I'd try Oz or Canada - haven't been to either - but that wouldn't bother me! I would do what we did before coming here though and have a reccie first. But I can't see it happening. I like where I am right now. Hubby would probably want to go back to the UK if we weren't happy here. I'd help him pack ...

Hhmm. Canada would be the first choice but which part or place I am not sure.

mmm......like Califronia for its sate/nat. parks, beaches and climate, but don't like yanks too much and couldn't live with all the gun-totting, ye-hah, look-at-me, crap.......

maybe Oz, Victoria perhaps, or the west coast of Canada

if back in the UK I'd take rural south Warwickshire or maybe somewhere on the Northumbrian coast now we have adjusted to a slower pace of life and got used to being near the sea again

I have no idea. I like where I am. After returning to the UK in August for a 'holiday', I can't imagine living there again. I've never fancied Australia, US is full of yanks & I'm not sure about Canada, probably too cold for me.

I've imagined living on an island in the Pacific or Indian Ocean but I'd probably get bored after a short while, so NZ it is for me

Hmmm - have to be the U.S. - been most other places (except South America) and feel I owe it to myself to 'conquer America' someday!

If i was REALLY rich and didn't need to be reliant on a wage somewhere in europe like Italy or Mallorca. It would have to be by the sea. I think the ONLY other place I would realistically be happy to live given that we need a wage is Oz, thus I would settle in Tazzy.
