i like texas and the usa, infact i love skiing in beaver creek, we've had some great hols there but that doesn't mean i want to live in any of those places, holidays are one thing and living another.
I am glad you are fine. Where would you like to live most?

Oh I see!! I just read what SnowBunny said also. You really do have to follow your heart. England has not been home to me for a long time. Going to CO and being with our friends is like going home to us. Can you not leave and come back to England?

that's good, it won't be such an upheaval for you.

i love italy and the lakes and the amalphi coast, not to live but to vacation there is so nice...i miss not being close to europe, everything is so far away here, at least it's not dingo land... now that is defo too far away from civilization

I feel like it wont be too much of an upheaval. I think because not only have we done it to a smaller extent before but having friends there will help heaps. I can't imagine doing that alone!

Italy is nice although like you, would not want to live there. I wont miss Europe to be honest but the UK will always be special to me.

I just want to thank everyone for the advice I have had here. I don't post often but I do read lots which has been so helpful. We were planning on going to Canada (as it is easier to go there) but now this has come through, we are completely stoked.

We are going to be so busy these next few months but I don't care about that! LOL

Anyway! I just wanted to share my good news.
Congrats on your move to CO. When you get here I am sure it will be all shiny and new for you, but when the novelty wears off, you will see the real America, and it may shock you.

Do not get sick here, we have no NHS to help you, no unemployment pay, none of the things which the UK has to offer. Life here is good, but when things go wrong it can be very hard indeed. Colorado is a beautiful state, I am sure you will enjoy it.

When do you fly out?
