Apologies for not replying sooner.

Brrr...... I don't like the cold

Best wishes on your travels and here's hoping you can make a cleaner break of leaving than I have achieved with one foot away and one foot in Ireland.
Travel broadens the mind (and the pocket as well).

Bunch of stuff really. Better job and salary. Had grown to despise Dublin; the traffic and the rental market just got unworkable. I keep seeing these reports about how highly it rated as a place to live and wondered if I was living in the same city at all. I'll be dead by the time they build a public transport system that works. I got sick of sitting in traffic and I couldn't afford to pay ever increasing rents in a profoundly unprofessional rental market.

Well having travelled around a good bit I'd say anywhere where tap water won't kill you, there's basic levels of nutrition, healthcare and education and the law is broadly accountable.

How was it getting a visa? What area is your employment in if you do not mind sharing

IT though anything on the skill shortage lists is the same basic procedure.

Getting a one-year work visa was pretty trivial, approved within a couple of weeks. Getting ordinary residency is a lot of paperwork but again if you do your homework and bring most of what you need with you it's just form-filling bureaucracy. Usually takes about 6 months for that to be approved. Then all you have to do is turn up for work and not get arrested for two years to get Permanent Residency, then there's another three years of trying not to get arrested to get citizenship...
