I knew you'd be along to put a sarcastic comment in.

To us, it was, and we've given the UK a go for over 6 months and Australia is where we prefer.

I know you prefer the UK and that is great too.

But this is a thread for people who want to tell people what they would miss about the lovely Australia so let it be!!

 

If there's a way to have a sly dig at Australia he will not miss the opportunity!

We spent 8 months in Australia a couple of years ago. I miss -

 

sunshine and warmth

amazing storms

interesting wildlife

Cherry Ripe chocolate bars

free parking (only place we paid for parking was Bondi Beach)

free BBQs

gorgeous beaches

the friends we made in that short space of time

:biggrin:

I hear so often about all the things we Brits miss about the UK and of course I miss all those things too.

 

But I would be really interested to hear from those who have moved back to the UK (for whatever reason)

What do you miss about living in Australia??

 

Or what WOULD you miss about Australia if you were to return to the mother land??

Thank you :)

 

 

My Aussie mates ....( i avoided the poms like the plague )

i could do with some weather over 5c ......the winter has been long .....not cold , just cold

AFL

The beach

The can do

 

 

Not enough to want to go back though , the canvas is far broader and deeper in europe

 

If i was 20 again and wanted an outdoor lifestyle i would head to florida or california

The big advantages oz had , when i was there have now gone ....the big ones being cheap housing and

cost of living

 

Its a great place ......but there are plenty of others


BUT I DONT FEEL AFRAID

AS LONG AS I GAZE AT

WATERLOO SUNSET

IAM IN PARADISE

I miss.....

Seeing my beautiful daughter happy ...she has been miserable since we moved

My friends

My godson

My house .....I still can't believe I sold it!

Carmen's' fruit free muesli

Sushi

Thai food

My hairdresser

Good cafes.... We lived in Sydney's inner west and went to cafes almost daily

Seeing my children run around barefoot

Enjoy lots of what UK has to offer but miss lots about my old life.

I won't experience it, so care factor zero

Why bother commenting then.


Drinking rum before 11am does not make you an alcoholic, it makes you pirate..

Wow, it sounds like paradise :)

 

Still that uncertainty niggling at you, back of the mind, have I done the right thing? Have to keep convincing myself.

 

I am surprised you have not mentioned missing your family, you were a tiny child when you came to Aus so I guess they are still here, or are they over there? If they are here surely you miss them? That would be something you would like about Aus.

I miss family, friends, the chance to go to the beach in consistent warm weather. The difference in work over there. The outback.

I'm in Australia, probably until I croak, but if I were to make it home;

 

1. My partner and our daughter.

2. My good friend Dr Karl.

3. Mighty Angus Burgers

4. The quality and range of Slurpees.

5. Mikes Carpets and Rugsamillion commercials.
