    Where would you move to. Why. Pics.
    New Zealand looks like paradise to me.
    I watch this show once and this dude walked on the Milford track while raining. The valley had what looked like hundreds of waterfalls everywhere.
    [​IMG] Some say that New Zealand has the best trails in the world to walk.

    New Zealand also has these guys [​IMG] [​IMG]
    State of Mind and Cocord Dawn. Also flight of the conchords cracks me up.

    They have a kick ass Rugby team.

    Wonderful wine.[​IMG]

    New Zealand is the safest country in the world.http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/jun/02/newzealand-tops-global-peace-ranking

    Beautiful women.[​IMG]

    They have mountains, deserts, ocean, major cities, drum and bass, culture, history, women, high quality health care, and ann almost magical enviroment.

    I can get a 2nd year without anything special. May apply for work using my degree (computer science) though in which case they could sponsor me if they wanted potentially.

    who knows man!

    Jamaica - St.Elizabeth when the twins have been through School we're doing it.

    If you've got a bit of money to start you off you're laughing out there...

    Small businesses thrive, white people & blicks educated abroad can get very high paid/positioned jobs very easily at Hotel Complexes & land/property is cheap as chips.

    Then you just live off the land, grow/rear/catch everything you need & work minimal hours or retire at like 45/50.

    People in "the country" there St.Elizabeth/Westmoreland/St.Anns, anywhere in the centre of the country are some of the friendliest & genuine people I have ever met, not the stereotypical ultra violence gangland warzone that the media portray in the slightest.

    Even Kingston & Montego Bay are on the whole relatively safe, put it this way, I felt safer roaming the streets of Kingston at 3am than I did in certain areas of Nottingham when I lived there.

    Can't wait to get back there tbh, going for the whole of November & taking the twins out there for the 1st time to meet the fammo, super excited! :)

    I've been to negril twice and boy is it a friendly place, i was intimidated by the friendliness for a few days but it is genuinely an amazing vibe. I went to a few partys, bob marleys house mainly touristy things. Can imagine being a top place to live. High grade of eveything in large quantitys if thats your bag aswell.
    The food is also out of this world

    Living in Amsterdam for a while was real nice, would kinda like to do that again at some point.

    Other than that maybe Cape Town if they got their shit together a bit, and probably in a few years too.

    Yeah defo BN14, thats one place on the island I haven't been is Negril, fortunately we're staying there for a few days at a Hotel, then with one of the wifes Aunties up in the hills there, so REALLY looking forward to that!

    Completely get what you're saying on the "scared of the friendliness" vibe, its somehthing Brits aren't used to, people genuinely being excited and interested in somebody from another country/way of life without wanting anything else from you, even though I was very lucky & was staying with family there, I spent the 1st week thinking all the people I met were going to rob me lol, felt proper fucking guilty when I realised the above...

    Proper refreshing to experience that untainted level of humanity again, horrible crash back to earth when you get back to the UK again, though. :(

    I had the paranoid kidnap feeling for 8hours on way to 9mile, didnt want to go on bus so we could smoke n indulge and the people who took us were shady as fuck, or so we thought! ended up round their's most nights chilling drink rum listening to reggae and smoking the joints so baddly bummed but its all good amazing people.

    Negril also has a mad nightclub called "jungle" an it literally is a jungle tree trunk urinals the works. Will be going back asap.

    The only thing that wasnt pleasant to see was the poverty at 9mile. Children no more than 4 throwing joints at your feet waiting for you to pick up then pay them. I picked up alot and paid for more than it was possible to smoke just as well, i dunno it made me feel good i suppose helping them. i throw hand fulls of weed away before i came home. got some good pics.

    Ocha rios water falls i could go on all day.......

    Yeah poverty is a killer out there man, literally.

    The mrs' family have no running water or constant electricity, but they're classed as "well off" cus they have a bit of livestock, some crops & a well, as you probably saw there are people there that would think tramps/the homeless in this country are living a life of royalty!!!

    Dunns River Falls is fucking siiiiiick too, liked it more than Ochii, also YS Falls is amazing too, surrounded by a nature reserve with these endangered species of mad butterflies & Humming Birds, wicked after a belly full of Wray & Naph n a fat one :spliff:

    I went to loads of dances 1st time I was out there, World Clash @ Pier One Montego Bay being the highlight...

    Went to Sting in Kingston & Prison Oval in Spanish Town too - Bounty, Capleton, Sizzla, Beenie, Ninjaman etc etc, all the greats & no hint of any anymosity toward me in the slightest, nuff people letting off shots & lighting torches n shit is daunting as fuck at first, but when you realise its purely for vibes you start getting into it lol.

    Gah, i'm itching to go back now!!!! :)

    I stayed in the same hotel both times but would never do that again. I'd want to travel the island, see the vibes in natural native form, i think going back to a nice hotel each night kinda is a kill joy. That itch got me badly. First went in 2004 n went back 2008 seems like an age ago! Have a good trip!
