Yes. he is headhunter.

ahhh.. it's really confusing which place to move. My friend from NZ's telling me it's better there than US, while my cousin's telling me US is better.. as always.

We just want to start a better life out of England as we want to have a family too soon..
England is a big NO for raising your children.

You will rent for the rest of your life with no savings.
Actually, it sounds to me like California is more similar to the UK than different. Housing costs here are very high...although our taxes aren't as high in the UK, I don't think. But a car is a necessity here, whereas it sounds like in a lot of parts of the UK it isn't. I imagine getting work visas for the both of you would be time consuming and expensive...not a process you'd want to be going through if you want to have a baby.

Hmmm.. my friend told me that there are some things expensive or same price in NZ - ike any other country. However, when it comes to cost of living.. NZ is more cheaper that UK.
If you'll try to think of it, every month we pay for council tax, depending on the size and location of the house/flat.. cheapest i think is 130 pounds per person, then we also pay for tv license.. license for teli?!
This country is crazy!
