If it's only scenery, and you only look at it, you have missed the point. I love seeing the Hauraki Gulf on the way to work, but it's sailing on it, at work or with my family, that makes it worthwhile. Ditto the beaches, countryside, mountains, parks etc - nice to look at, but not worth emigrating just to look. If you really are going to do exactly the same things here as you do in the UK, you have to question why you're moving

I agree with all that though I'm not sure why you are addressing it at me, I was replying to someone else re the scenery?

kodachrome - I thought your post was tongue in cheek but wanted to just point out it is really just a change of scenery. I have replied earlier in this thread why we came
