Yep, just moved from US to Australia for a job. I lived in the UK for a year about a year and a half ago, and silly me, I thought UK was expensive. Was I in for a shock when I got to here! Thing is, I didn't mind it in the UK, it seemed to me being where I was (London), you get what you paid for in general, I found the UK 'rate of return' to be fantastic. Here, the jury still out.
