What's it like?

I have lived and worked in many countries, sometime for quite long periods. I thought some readers would like to know what various places are like to live and work (perhaps because they are considering a temporary job in a new location, thinking about emigration or even just planning a vacation).

I will write more pages over time, and may add to and even alter the detail of some pages. For the moment I have written the following:

If any readers want to submit pages with their own experience, for places that I haven't been to, or send updates and corrections to my pages, please feel free.

When I have time, I plan to write pages about living in Stockholm, and the West of Ireland, and perhaps also about visiting some places.
