No it isn't all about money but given what you have written above I would certainly say it's important to you to some degree. I see so many people on these forums that dream of coming to Australia because of the"better lifestyle" and "warmer weather" but then as soon as they get here they struggle to have the same standard of life as they did prior to moving and move back home. Unless you are going to have a better quality of life I don't see a point in moving.

The cost of every day items are generally relative to what you are being paid. To me you seem to be doing pretty well in Norway on that wage despite the costs that you are complaining about.We still have rates and taxes and road tolls, $600 rego for our cars and a stupid amount of money to pay in stamp duty....apart from one or two items on your list it all doesn't sound that different to here.
