I have just read this thread through and its a great thread. As a family nearly there i have often wondered what are the main reasons it does not work out for people from missing family back home, to not being able to get work or there ocupations work, through to it just not being what they thought it would. Then did they do a recce defore they moved over and what percentage of those that returned did or did not do recces. It would be interesting to do a chart for people that stay and go back and those that struggle and who dont based on jobs, money, missing family, recces, ect. I just dont have a clue how to start it.

Great honest posts though and good luck to all wether staying or going back. At least you have all give it a go.
