Re: Any Brits out there in North Idaho / Spokane WA area?

Just received email update as I replied to the original poster, and I can imagine your dilemma with meeting fellow Brits in Idaho. I've been there a few times, first back in the late 90s as my...

There is a Florida vacation home owners forums (mainly British owners) that has an ongoing 4 page topic about this. I remember seeing it was taking around 6/9 months before refunds were sent out....

Re: Does anyone here from the UK have a Florida home ?

Must say I was a little 'surprised' by last couple of long term posters replies. Not really something a newcomer would want to see.... Only my opinion!!

Re: Does anyone here from the UK have a Florida home ?

$1,500-2,000 p m appears to be the norm renting in my region just a short drive west of the parks. 5 or so years back that would have been $1,200-1,500 including pool/lawn care. Plenty of new sub...

Re: Does anyone here from the UK have a Florida home ?

I see you mention you're 47 years old as that was my age 18 years ago when I decided I wanted to live in Florida. Ok it was easier for me as I'm a dual national so no visas needed. I'm now in my mid...

Re: Any Brits out there in North Idaho / Spokane WA area?

4 days since you posted so I guess there's not many Brits in that neck of the woods! I was in Idaho this time last year and was due to be there again about now, but due to the virus my visits on...

Re: Returning with family after nightmare abroad

Wow, sounds awful and good luck for the future. Is it possible you could reveal the country this happened in and where you're returning too?

Re: Low cost of living coastal towns - South/S.E. England

That was a quick reply....I'm actually just west of Orlando, close to the parks and more or less smack bang in the middle of Florida. One thing, funny enough I cope well with is the heat and...

Re: Low cost of living coastal towns - South/S.E. England

Why not take a look at Essex/Suffolk coast line. A little biased as I'm from that part of the world before crossing the 'pond' to Florida close on 20 years ago. Felixstowe, close to Ipswich is a much...

Re: The perfect place....

I would certainly consider the Gulf side of Florida although there are some lovely decent beach towns on the Atlantic side such as St Augustine, Port Orange, New Symrna. I've lived inland in central...

Re: Florida vacation with 5 year-old
