A Reforming Perfectionist
I have been surprised at how little I do miss.
- Decent dark ale is one thing but we've got 2 imports from NZ that are Ok.
- Decent TV.that's another matter entirely. I don't watch it much but Aussie TV is the pits. I'd happily pay the TV licence fee to be able to watch BBC even via the iplayer...We do get BBC Stuff eventually...
- Decent driving distances, as in how far the car in front is when it pulls over... Aussies have the hang of keep left, just not the concept of actually getting passed you before the pull over... like wise for pulling around you. Even if there is not another vehicle in sight on the totally Straight dual carriageway, they will come that close to you that you want be able to see their rego plate before they decide that they are actually going to go around you and not through you... and the least said about pulling back in after they have passed you the better because most of the time they haven't actually passed you yet!
- decent sunsets/sunrises. In the UK, they last half an hour or so...here 10 minutes and itis over... I really enjoyed the hours - long sunsets in northern Scandinavia (above the Arctic Circle)...
