Default Hello: I'm so glad I found you all

Hi,

Glad I found this place and some like minded people. I've been living in Australia for quite a few years, but am becoming increasingly unhappy here, and plan to move home next year with my wife.

Anyway just thought I'd say hello. Congratulations on realising how truly great our country is. It's like a club eh?

Hope I can contribute in some small way

I'm from the South West area, although our careers would see us in the South East or London when we return.

We probably head back to South East thats where we are from originally.

Looking further North but probably end up back in Kent

I was watching the TdF (cycling and triathlon are my 'things') the other day. I must say, Kent was looking lovely

Mmm but Stear clear of Chatham bit rough!! Maidstone and surrounding areas nice. Faversham, Canterbury lovely places to live round that way, Maidstone nice and central and had a big clean up I think was back in March and found it pleasant to walk round the town centre there...

Quite like Whitstable area though, yu can find some lovely little villages if you have a good drive round.

Welcome Triboy - we have been back in the south of England for nearly a year - lived in Perth for 2 years - was a great experience but I am so relieved to be back in the UK.

Good luck with all your plans for your return to good ol' Blighty!
