Great place. Looks and feels a bit like the US (big sprawling cities, need a car), but filled with Europeans rather than Americans! Though I was last there in 2001, so it might have changed a bit. I thought hard about trying to emigrate there in the early-mid 90s, but never quite took the plunge – partly ‘cos of how far I would have been from my brother and my parents. Definitely worth going for a spell if you ever get the chance.
