    Lol. We don't hate Australia. Not really. We just love to whinge. It's like a national pasttime.

THE SUN. We have real shorts summers up here in Scandinavia. It sucks. And then it doesn't really matter how high GDP per capita we have, it's all cold and dark most of the year. And well, let's just say social habits aren't as social up here, we don't really have much of the everyday gatherings at the local pub that you see in other countries for an example.

    JJJ, have you ever actually lived anywhere other than Aussie-land? I totally think we underestimate the value of Australian weather until we've lived somewhere else... Like I used to think I'd like to live somewhere cooler... until I spent a year in Germany.

    I mean, the landscape is gorgeous and all, but it was cold! (And they really only got down to -5 C or so!) And I was so deprived of sun... they had like two weeks of summer, and that was it. They had so few sunny days they were like, OMG it's sunny! Let's do OUTDOOR stuff! And I was like, meh, really?

    LOL. Don't get me wrong, it was lovely, and I'd go back, maybe to live, but I really appreciate the hot weather here now. *snuggles*

I have the typical backpacker/student fantasy of living in Europe, learning German, Spanish, and Italian, and brushing up on my French.
    OMG me toooo! Though this will have to be after I do an exchange to Berkeley for a semester. Or as long as I can manage to drag it out.

    Haha, I adore travelling. I don't get enough of it.

I think I also read that in some of the countries with long days of low light, it can have depressive effects.
    My sister is currently living in Finland, and apparently they have one of the highest rates of youth suicide of any country. Apparently spring is the killer season... when it's all grey and depressing outside. I guess it can mess with your head.

    But apart from that, it seems like a really nice country to live in. In any case, I haven't seen nearly as much of Scandinavia as I would like.

    Oh, I would also love to live in London for a while. Or just park myself there for a month and see every theatre production there is to see.

    Score! We get points! Perth is pretty cool, but it's a families sort of place, if you know what I mean. Great place to raise your kids and all, a fairly relaxed, casual, Beach BBQ sort of lifestyle, but for the young adults there's not a huge amount to do.

    That's why they're all overseas, hostel-ing, like CzeCze mentioned.



    So, anyway, enough of my country.

    It's sad.

    But on the other hand, we've been having a 'drought' for the last hundred years.

    Edit: And yes! I have been fortunate enough to scuba dive both on Ningaloo Reef and the Great Barrier Reef.... both spectacular.

    How old are you? Article says the reef is supposed to last another 30 years. That ol' boy might just outlive you yet, in which case the right sentence is, "I want to scuba there before I'M dead." unless you're young. Actually, leaving out cancer and toxins and all that kind of nasty shit that kills you -- I hate to be so morbid, but death is what's on the table -- you'd probably need to be like 40 or so before that would be a concern, in which case, scuba-ing is probably off limits.

    My dad collects and grows coral. I'll probably go down there, and scuba, of course, but I'll collect a few frags for him to grow. The Great Barrier reef shall not die entirely. Not on my watch.

    Most Australians I know love living here.

    I've lived in both the USA and France and have recently returned from a few months in Denmark. I've really no desire to return to the USA, I can take or leave France, but I really loved Denmark. I look forward to returning next year, and this time I hope to also spend some time in Norway.

    Save fore the Balkan countries, Austria and Finland, Europe is the best place to live in.
    The best European countries are not in the list.

    Well, I guess we can change the vote to the 'best continent' to live on, but I fear Antarctica would feel left out. And Australia would get the same votes.

    I'd love to go to Antarctica. Ever see The Thing?

    In fact, Antarctica would be the perfect base of operations for the NT world domination. Sure it's cold down there, but NTs don't go outside that much...we're too busy operating our computers indoors!
