    Default Perth or Oxford?

    Well my company has offered me a transfer, and has asked me to chose where I would rather live.

    Choices are: Perth, Aus or Oxford, UK.

    All things being equal where would you rather live?

    tough choice. im leaning towards perth because of the warmer climate, and its probably more laid back

    I was born in Oxford in the early 80's and from what I remember I would choose Perth.

    Quality of life, climate and people would be my deciding factors.

    Oxford. Everything in Europe is so close, a weekend trip to Belgium or Paris is viable. You are slightly restricted in that aspect living in Austrailia. Plus, the culture and histroy of England in general would be a motivating factor for me

    The other factor is I will travel a lot with both jobs.

    If in UK destinations will include

    Scotland, France, Italy, Germany, Norway, Russia, and North Africa.



    If in Aus destinations will be

    Indonesia, China, Korea, Japan, Malaysia, India and other parts of AUS.

    My friend can attest to this, he has been in Perth for the last two years. He hates it and can't wait to come back. Definitely go to Oxford if you care at all about things like culture, history and interesting people to talk to. Perth has none of those things.

    I would make an effort to stay in Europe, and therefore choose to be based in the UK.

    While I'd rather be based in Perth, having to travel to all the countries you listed would deter me from wanting to be there. No love here for India, Indonesia, or Malaysia. The countries you'll travel to out of Oxford are much more appealing! Russia, France, & Africa!!
