That's good to know. I never truly give up with the idea of getting the heck out of here.

Got some British friends here who spent a couple of weeks holidaying in Weymouth in August with family. They loved it. Great beaches, some interesting little shops, nice pubs.

After the way NZ PM Jacinda treated her citizens I wouldnt visit if you paid me.... and certain parts of OZ seem under dictator rule and I thought it was bad in Trudeaus Chinada.

If we can get back to visit and look, I think I'll try and get there for a couple of days. Isle of Wight has caught my eye also.

I have just come back from Queensland and to be honest unless I had a few million dollars in the bank I would not want to live there. The Sunshine Coast has got very busy, overly busy in fact. The traffic was horrendous and the last two days of our trip were in Brisbane CBD which we found really nice. It has definitely improved as a city. The river cat is an excellent way of getting around. Again without a lot of money I still would not want to live there though.

Jacinda appears to be losing the popularity contest, never mind,

I know what you mean, I lived in Qld for 2 years and hated it. And I hated the heat.
