Alright lads, I need some input on whether to move to the other side of the world. (Yes I posted >>13299 but I can't delete the thread because it has too many replies).
I'm consulting friends, family and now this place as none of you know me and can be as unbiased and not care about hurting my feelings. Yes I know ultimately it also has to be my decision.
With that said, have any of you lads ever been to NZ? Lived there? Know people that lived there? Lived anywhere that's not the UK? It's a small country but trying to find anybody who has actually lived there is a bit of a pain.
I've been offered a job I wasn't expecting, it's more money (About 100k NZ dollars which is about 50k GBP), it's in a well known place and it means that I'll get lots of fresh air, lots of nice scenery and compared to living in London I can afford my own one bed/studio rather than a houseshare with strangers.
That said, I'm worried it just looks...well... boring. I love the outdoors, but it seems like you really have to enjoy that and the isolation, otherwise it's fucking lonely. London has its faults, but I'm never bored, I have my network here and I have lots I can do here, even if it can be a bit polluted and grimy at times.
Having consulted with people I know (even my gf), they all think it's ridiculous not to take it and try it out and if it's shit come back after a year or so, find a new job and carry on living my London life. My gf said if it's good she will come visit and then come and join me after 6 months or so.
Any of you lads got any opinions on NZ or wanna shout out things in general to consider about moving abroad? I've only ever lived in the UK so I feel like I am trying to weigh up the wrong things.
