    I just had a long conversation with my boss, regarding whether or not I would like to go to Japan or England for a year to work. The pay is good, about 100,000 dollars a year. I speak Japanese and I know the cost of living is pretty high in both places. If you had a choice between Japan and England, both islands, which would you rather work or live in for one year?

    The UK is cool.. I'd rather go there.. I may go there sometime actually, my wife and I have talked about it.. Less children in underground slave trade.. that stuff pisses me off over in Asia.

    I actually had a weird dream one time that I was in England somewhere with my entire family and we spent days and days driving around looking for Zardon's house so we could drink beer.. That was one weird dream!

    Go to England, it's sort of the cradle of western civilisation. I would go to, if I had the chance. :(

    All three choices are good and yet bad at the same time!

    what's your objective? if its to save money, okinawa is probably best.

    if you want a great life experience, england all the way. weekend trips to spain, france, scotland, ireland, wales if you want. 2000+ years of culture. world class cities. easy cultural exchange (e.g. same language).

    I just got a call yesterday asking me if I still intended to go to England as another person just bid on the contract and he lives in England, unfortunately he hasnt been trained to use the software I use and thinks I will fly there and train him and then scoot back across the pond so my company can save lots of money...
    not!
    I told my boss I will take Japan for a lot more money..
    we shall see..
    but England...
    that would be wonderful..
    I already have 6 years of Japan under my belt.

    I'd say england, a lot of the members are from the area, and plus you could travel all across Europe (again?). Although, i do know your love for Japan and the culture. In the end, i think you'd be happy either way

    Yeah LOL- the weirdest part is that it was sunny the whole time.
    Doesn't it rain over there all the time? That would bug me.. I like the rain, but not too much of it.
