    Was born in London. I won't live anywhere except here or there (London). Can't live without cricket.

    I've got an offer on the table to go to London in April next year for 2 years.

    Seriously considering it tbh, the move from Sydney to Melbourne didn't feel like enough of a "change" for me. Might as well go full cop and go another country.

    I'd jump on it tbh. I'd absolutely love to live somewhere in Australia for two years, were it not for ties round the Irish parts. Who's the offer from?

    It's an IBM project that's starting next year. They need engineering consultants with field experience in finance. I applied internally and was asked if I'm interested in going next year. Really tempting tbh.

    I don't like London though, I should probably point that out. Not as a place to live in anyway. It's nice enough to visit.

    If you're offered a trek to Manchester, don't even think about letting that one go

    Haha, heard the curries in Manchester are better than anywhere else. Will have to make the pilgrimage when I'm over there.

    Go go go go go!

    London's not my favourite place in the world, but it's an easy place to see Europe from. I'm sure you'll love it once you're there.

    Certainly better than anywhere I've been, quite a few people i live with have curries every night here but refuse to eat them anywhere else. Definitely worth a visit. As Coco says, once you're in London you can fly wherever you like for cheap so it's a big opportunity.

    Lived in Japan for 5 years now (19 to 24).
    Miss home, and can't wait to get back.

    I really want to travel around the world, but 5 years in one place is way to long.

    So no.

    That's awesome mate, go for it! The economic climate here in Melbourne is pretty poor at the moment and a few graduates I know who started with me have been let go. So if you're getting an opportunity and you don't have family restrictions at the moment then go for it.

    Moved from Australia to UK in 2006 and really glad I did, love it here. Not sure what my next move will be - I love Australia and see myself settling back there one day, but that's still years in the future. Reckon there's every chance I'll spend some time living on the continent at some point - would really like to live in Amsterdam for a while.

    Will the immigration authorities let you back in after delivering such a glowing assessment of Pommieland?

    Yeah, left the family in Sydney so not locked down to anything except the woman right now. This is way too big an opportunity for me to turn down I'm thinking.

    Condolences for your mates, where do you work? I know a few guys from Uni and High School who are on the bench right now too and are struggling big time getting back in the game. All grads with good marks in Uni too.
