SE Queensland, Northern Sydney & West Palm Beach Florida

an experience of country and coast

I have been to 11 states in the USA and then I fell in love with a man who lives in Florida, but I live in Brisbane.
 
I don't want to get married yet, so USA immigration will not let me stay for more that 12 weeks at a time and will not let me work without a social security number. I have had to leave him there ;-( as he cannot leave Florida due to work commitments. So I travel back and forth.
 
Florida is much like Surfers Paradise but much bigger and much more humid in summer and of course everyone drives on the opposite side of the road - scary to do 1st time !!
 
I love Queensland, Northern Beaches of Sydney & Florida and would love to live in all places. 6 months of the year in winter in Florida (nov-april) & then winter (may - oct) in Queensland or Sydney.
 
Lets see what happens in the future ?????
