    yes, when my family moved to Mesa, Arizona in 1970.It was a tremendous culture shock for New Yorkers to move to a place across the country so different than what we were used to.
    we eventually moved back after 7 months...never again..

    @ Stacie L - I imagine that would be hard. I've lived in both places (well, Western Connecticut technically) and they are night and day from each other.

    Of course I guess you trade out harsh winters for brutal summers. I grew up in Texas so it wasn't such a shocker.

    Not so much a bad experience as one of disappointment.   In 1971 I moved with my family from Sydney, Australia, to Auckland, New Zealand.   The first thing  that struck me was the country lagged behind Australia by a good ten to fifteen years.  I recall mentioning to an prospective employer that people in Australia (in my field, radio telecommunications) were beginning to use Ferranti computers.   
    "What's that?"  From an electrical engineer.
    "Well, you can type and watch what you're typing coming up on the screen in front of you."
    "Bull shit!   How can that happen..."
    I rest my case on being behind the times.

    The other thing which disappointed was the weather.   I was used to Aussie summers.  The hottest day we had in the best part of three years was 25 degrees Celcius.   I used to love going to the beach to swim.   Not much chance of that in NZ.

    Also, income tax was extremely high, the harder you worked, the more you payed.   

    But I guess the clincher was the feeling of being "at the end of the world" and right out of what was going on.   The Kiwis (New Zealanders) seemed to have a big inferiority complex.  Great people, but eventually I knew I had to come back to Australia, if only to know that here I had three million square miles of land mass, with the freedom to travel anywhere in it, rather than the smaller area of N.Z.    It's a beautiful country, but lack the versatility of Australia.

    The only struggle when you move to a new place is the environment and the culture of the people. You have to adjust.

    Our bad experience was many years ago when we moved from the UK to Southern California. Before the move we employed an internationally experienced removal company to pack all our family's personal items, china, pictures, ornaments, excess clothing  etc., crate them and ship them to us by sea.

    Two months later we were informed that the crate had arrived in Long Beach. We drove down to collect our crate only to find that it had already been opened by the US customs and rifled by goodness knows who. Three quarters of our personal stuff was missing and other items were damaged. It was a complete disaster.
