Default Hello from Channel Islands

Hi,

I've been browsing this forum for a while looking for inspiration but now I thought I better just better man up and ask...

Where we I go?

My wife and I have decided we no longer wish to live here in the CI. We both find it very small and claustraphobic. It's nice being by the sea and the standard of living is very high. Expensive (think central london + a bit) but high. Most of our cash is tied up in our house and I'm also thinking we may need to get while the gettin' is good.

I am a personal trainer, and ex-programmer, and my wife works in finance. But she would like out.
We are both pretty obsseive sporty types. So that has to be a priority.
No kids and there will be none.
By the sea - see "sports".
Warm - see "sports" again.
English speaking is nice but not essenstial. we are good with languages.
I would like my own gym/fitness biz. My wife is the brains of the operation so she would help run the actal running.
Budget? If we sell up. 1M.
Not sure about NZ. Not sure we would get into Oz!

So where are we going?

Well the skies the limit, and we've got discussion forums for many places in the world here, so I am sure you will be able to home in on a few destinations

BE members are great at sharing info and stuff, so read through the threads in the country forums you are interested in and you will learn lots about the countries you are looking at.

If you get stuck don't hesitate to give me a shout.

Thanks! I have been beavering away. We've always fancied the US. Love SF and southern Florida. Problem is the only way we would get in is on an E2... Less than idea.

The far east holds attraction too but I'm not sure who will need a PT!

Hello and a big welcome to BE.

Excellent information can be found in the BE Wiki, not forgetting the Living and Moving Abroad forum that will help you, another set of great help is the permanent threads at the TOP of each forum, they are very pertinent to that particular forum and makes sensible reading.

Moderators deal with any problems that arise such as inappropriate posts, spammers etc, you will find their names at the bottom right hand side of each forum's index in bold font.

Please contact me if I can give you any further help.
