I've often asked myself where I would spend a year far away from my conuntry, if I had had the opportunity to do it.
I think I would choose Australia that is supposed to be the new-frontier country, especially for job-opportunities. A cousin of mine went there a few years ago and he stayed for 3 months; he has told me Australia is very amazing, it's like you expect it.
I imagine Australia is wild and "natural" yet. I have heard that people who settle there are very happy and they never would come back.
