Tom Moir from New Zealand. Leaving Scotland.
I left Scotland some two and a half years ago. I remember leaving Paisley with a temperature of -5C in January and arriving in Auckland, New Zealand a few days later with a temparature of 25C! I have never worn any of my Scottish winter clothes since I got here.
