We fly out in 23 days and are nervous but excited. We keep asking ourselves "why are we doing this?" With this in mind I thought I'd make a list - I'd love others to add their reasons to the thread too!
1 - Better quality of life for us and kids - surfing, boating, fishing, cycling, just being outdoors!
2 - Weather
3 - Living by the sea
4 - Less materialistic lifestyle - focus on living enjoyably, not buying things (I know we could do this at home, but it's easier when you can enjoy an outdoor lifestyle in good weather!)
5 - For an adventure - to feel we are living our lives rather than stagnating in our UK comfort zone.
That's a few to start anyway.
