    Sell everything, get on the plane happy and dont look back. Far better back here. Much better and youre really isolated stuck so far away out there too.

    Been in Oz 8 months and struggling - advice please!

    U.K. is the best country in the world period. Soon as brexits done in 2 weeks it will be even better.

    Really ? How did you arrive at that conclusion ?

    Well, I reckon you will be happy. When you have that gut feeling, it’s really time to go. U.K. is a great place to live now. There’s not much down there compared to here, and you really are so isolated from everything out there.

    And there are also those who say they are supposedly settled yet can’t stay away from the Moving Back to U.K. thread because they know deep down that they really miss the U.K too but won’t actually admit it. It’s that feeling in the pit of your stomach which you know, telling you the truth that it’s time to come back. Don’t leave it too late tho as you want to get enough NI paid for your state pension.

    We had a garage sale. The Aussies came and stripped the place bare the lot was sold in one day including all the garish hideous heavy wood furniture they all love down there.

    Sorry to hear your story. It’s a difficult situation when you have an Aussie partner. We were so glad to get out of that place.

    Yes same here......there was the boredom down there. It was excruciating at times. You don’t realise just how good we have it in UK until you go away all the way out there and find yourself cut of from everything.

    As long as you don’t hit the same problems that drove you out last time. They will always still be there.

    Going back and forth will devour your savings.

    Correct, totally correct but it was the place to be for oil industry guys if you wanted to make money. If Tasmania had offered a similar salary I might have gone there. But on paper Tas had no appeal for us.....an island, remote, totally cut off, even more isolated than Perth, no jobs. Now I’m half an hour from a very large town and half an hour from a big city in the other direction and a major U.K. domestic airport. But the best thing is, I live in the U.K. and the U.K. is right in the middle of the whole world.

    No regrets. Never looked back after coming home. More freedom, better career, better location, more hobbies, more friends, my family, better food, better telly, better beer and pubs, great healthcare, my state pension, the list goes on....I wouldn’t swap my life in a beautiful village with green open space, views and fresh clean air to go back live in a dry stinking hot suburb in a sweat box house where you can hardly breathe or get a decent nights sleep.....a sandpit garden, trapped behind a 6ft grey colour bond fence doing almost the exactly same things day after day. There was nowhere to go. Really ? swap my life in U.K. for that, absolutely no chance. 11 years back now and really grateful for the life I’ve got here. Australia was not bad or anything but U.K. is a truly fantastic country to live in. Think carefully before you throw all this away if you’re not sure.
