I left 25 years ago

Why you left, Kev?

I lived in Los Angeles for 2 years Dmitry (1982)  in a place called Laguna Beach, I got used to the climate and beaches but after my work contract ran out the Americans would not let me stay even though my employer wanted to keep me, so instead of returning to cold wet miserable England I ended up in tropical Queensland Australia, which also has great hot weather and great beaches, they gave me a permanent residence visa and now I am a citizen of Australia :)

I wanted to move to Australia too, but my wife says it is a world away. And I still afraid Australia is too hot for me.

I have both English & Australian passports, I will live the rest of my life in Australia, I love it so much here, but I could never give up being British, fortunately I (and my family) was allowed dual nationality

It is a long way away D but air travel is pretty cheap nowadays, regarding the heat, Oz is as big as the USA, you can live in a hot or cool climate, my son is skiing right now in the Victorian Alps, Tasmania is quite cold most of the year and of course with an Aussie visa you can live in New Zealand if you like it colder

Its an interesting question and Ive thought about it......I think its an individual thing, My Mothers family was Irish and My fathers ancestry is Scottish and as a English Northerner I feel more affinity with Scotland & Ireland than I do with Southern England so I regard myself as British, the official name for our country is The United Kingdom Of Great Britain & Northern Ireland, England is only a part of that
