now that you put it like that, it does sound rather compelling.

Scandanavia does appeal, although the coldness puts me off a tad.

Mr Meow would like to move to Australia, but I really don't fancy living there. I like the idea of living in the South of France, but not their taxes.

I really don't know where we'll end up, but suspect it could be the Far East somewhere. Climate, food and reasonable taxes would do it.

Sounds to me as if Singapore might suit you.

It's a possibility, especially as I spent a lot of my childhood there. Malaysia is on my list too.

Nicaragua. Beautiful country, nice people, excellent weather and beaches. Food is not bad either.
Nice bargains on property too.

Don't know about that. It always seems to be more expensive, though....
