Definitely South Florida. Much more urban, cool, cosmopolitan. GC is what Ft Laud was 30 years-extreme tacky. Plus if living in So Fla, u can escape to cool places like the Florida Keys, West Coast Florida for quiet beautiful beaches if thats ur thing.

I can vouch the women in Miami are hotter

Do you mean by that that the denity of fake, botoxed blonde a la Nicole Smith is higher ?

Rubbish. Australia is a short distance from Asia, and an even shorter distance from New Zealand. Yes, it's isolated from Europe, but like I said, we have Asia and some of the greatest Asian cities in the world (Tokyo, Hong Kong, Shanghai) not very far away.

It takes over 9 hours to fly to Hong Kong/Shanghai/Tokyo from Gold Coast, you call that not very far?
You could compare it with flying from Copenhagen to Beijing or from Rome to Calcutta.

9 hours on plane is nothing: lean back, chill out and reset your mind to holiday mode. Europeans have such a warped view of distance. It must come from living in those tiny little countries...
