Re: A Warm All-Year-Round Place to Retire

BTW - "Jacaranda" is a "her"! A 63-year-old her! Belize has an immigration policy for retirees, too, which makes the idea attractive, in some ways!

Re: A Warm All-Year-Round Place to Retire

Beginning to wish I'd never started this thread . . . . . . . :rolleyes:

Re: A Warm All-Year-Round Place to Retire

Glad it's not you! I suppose the name of the spider, the "recluse" tells that it's rather rare - mind you, the snakes are bad enough, if you weigh them against the good old British adder or viper -...

Re: A Warm All-Year-Round Place to Retire

Oh my goodness - have been off the boards for a bit, so not following the thread! Ray, that looks awful - I hope it's better now? What *is* a recluse spider, and where do they come from?

Re: A Warm All-Year-Round Place to Retire

Oh no, no way! Although I hate the cold climate, they do say that, apart from imported licenced "pet" species, the only indigenous snake here in UK that is poisonous is the adder! ;)

Re: A Warm All-Year-Round Place to Retire

Yes . . . I don't know that I would quite like to live with scary things like that again, even though wild things are, in the main, more scared of us humans than we of them!

Saw a TV prog once of...

Re: A Warm All-Year-Round Place to Retire

Also, although on the plus side Queensland ticks all the boxes, after living in Africa and the Middle East, the downside is that it's tooooo far away from family, and you just have too many poisonous...

Re: A Warm All-Year-Round Place to Retire

Haha, I never had to reach for an umbrella, thankfully! - but I did have the unfortunate experience (Mum and Dad were there during and after the Revolution in 1974 - in Luz, in the Algarve) of having...

Re: A Warm All-Year-Round Place to Retire

Hi Sunnydays

Thanks for all that - when last were you in Tavira? I only passed through it once, summer of 1974, with my late parents, who were living in Portugal at the time - they'd got sick of...

Re: A Warm All-Year-Round Place to Retire

I sort-of thought about it - am still researching (electronically), I guess, as am still working, and, as yet, no moola to go off on fact-finding trips. What is it like re crowds of...

Re: A Warm All-Year-Round Place to Retire

Thanks for that - but my sister, who has been there several times, tells me I would find it far too hot and humid (the humidity also goes for the arthritis). I guess I'm really looking for somewhere...
