which country you like to live in?
Scotland, with holiday homes in England, Spain & Canada.
I have an affinity with Scotland, love the ruggedness & couldn’t care about the weather (it adds to the charm) I’m English so somewhere in the North would be nice for family ties. Spain for ease of access to somewhere warm (with good food) Canada…just because.Posted 4 years agoSaxonRiderSubscriber
First choice? Germany, either very close to Aachen, or in the North East, close enough to Berlin, but more up Mecklenburg way.
If I could, I would also have a another home back in my native Canada. Somewhere around Montreal, or more specifically the Eastern Townships.Posted 4 years agojon1973Member
..assuming no language barriers, and economic issues aside, if you could choose a country, other than the one you live in, where would you like to live, and why would you like to live there?
I kind of love the idea of Mediterranean Europe. Somewhere where you spend most of your time living outdoors, and a bit of a slower lifestyle. Italy appeals to me for some reason.Posted 4 years agobwfc4eva868Member
Canada or Australia. But more realisticly I’m happy in this country apart from the scrubbers that plague the town centre with 5 kids in tow, the weather’s crap and the roads are worse than roads in Eastern Europe. I’d like to have a holiday home in Rhodes tho. Relaxing way of life, beautiful summers, very friendly locals, a couple I keep in contact with year round. And some amazing roads for riding motorbikes on.
I feel so much more relaxed and safer riding/driving in Rhodes than even my small town Darwen.Posted 4 years agosingletrackmindMember
Met a guy yesturday who lives on a 40ft ketch in the caribean for most of the year ,
Rents out a house and a flat him + Gf own , mid 40’s with grown up kids.
sounded idylic , wi-fi from cafe on beach , PVC power and a wind turbine 200AH battery pack.Buys in 5ltr bottled drinking water though.
I could handle some of that.
Otherwise South of France , Montpellier area probably . Not too hot in summer, near enough to ski and the med . Although Santander and surrounding area if I had £ to retire on .Posted 4 years agoEdukatorMember
There are places I’d like to live for a year or so. Not yet though as junior is in his exam years. Germany and Quebec appeal. If they really appealed I’d already be there.
A friend looked into living in the US and realised that health care insurance costs would drive him back to Europe sooner or later.
If you move to France then Montpellier is one of the last places I’d suggest. People from Seine-Saint-Denis dream of moving there and many do. It’s also cold and windy in Winter and hot and mosquito infested in Summer.Posted 4 years ago
