Re: Which English city should I live in?

Newcastle.

Ok, I'm biased, I live about10 miles west in the beautiful Tyne Valley and wouldn't want to live anywhere else. I am totally in awe of Northumberland every time I step out the front...

Re: Newcastle upon tyne Outer areas

We moved to Prudhoe which is located on the south bank of the Tyne Valley three years ago and we love it. Newcastle city centre is a 20-minute train journey away, a bus ride will take you 40 minutes....

Re: Those intangibles, the things you miss

Now that's my idea of how to spend a Sunday morning! We were out back in a nice shady corner before it got to hot; looking north over the Tyne Valley there's a lot of haze and a faint scent of...

Re: Those intangibles, the things you miss

Is it just me or are the blackberries early this year? I noticed them starting to ripen nicely in some of the hedgerows around here just the other day. There's a public footpath up the side of the...

Re: Those intangibles, the things you miss

I'm guessing you're about the same age I was when I re-connected with my own wonderful boy from long ago. I emigrated to Canada as a child and lived there 45 years before returning. I experienced...

Re: Thinking of moving back to the u.k

Re: Finally going home
