Having lived in Montreal and Auckland we're looking for somewhere most like Montreal and LEAST like Auckland. Montreal was exciting and easy to get around and we've found Auckland to be a boring, sprawled, inconvenient, expensive shithole (sorry Aucklanders). My first choice would be Edinburgh based solely on the architecture and culture but my worry is that it is a bit small and opportunities might be limited. Manchester's new BBC development could be a good opportunity for me but the city itself seems very sprawled and ugly. London is only really an option if I'm able to obtain decent employment prior to moving there. Im pretty much still at square one and will probably have to wait til we are actually there to decide.
