Although most people are content to travel and then return home at the end of their vacation: others dream of making a permanent move abroad. Typically those from colder climates dream of moving somewhere warm. The Brits particularly flock to Spain and France or further afield to Australia.
Australia is a country built on emigration and fast-growing states such as Western Australia are full of immigrants: in fact the percentage of WA born locals is down to less than 45% in Perth. Are you considering a move to Australia – Read more about moving to Australia here
Venice is special: to be honest a little disappointed in Rome and Florence: it was all so noisy and frantic. You cant wonder the streets and expect to survive – the traffic is crazy. Loose concentration for an instant and you will fail to dodge the crazy moto (scooter) on the footpath – and trying to cross the road is a nerve-racking near-death experience.
Venice is different – its quiet – the gondolas and even the larger boats don’t make nearly as much noise And more importantly they stay on the water -you really can wonder around and forget to look where you are going and not die – oh just watch out for the water’s edge!
