Default Hello from Mr hobnobs (was eating when i registered)

Hello all!

I have just registered so thought to make my way here to introduce myself.

I am British, living in London and working as Systems Administrator.

I have been wanting to move abroad for a while, but the thought of dropping everything and moving is always scary. Anyhow, now that I am 30 (maybe midlife crisis?) I thought to myself, I just need to move somewhere nice, relaxed environment and unwind myself. Being single for about 2 years after getting through 6 years of relationship breakup, I am ready to drop everything (not that I have any commitments anymore) and move somewhere.

I dont have any idea where, but I have been to Portugal and liked the lifestyle. its something i want so I can relax and come back after a year or so for a fresh start. After all its my home still.

But i am sure you all have a lot more experience and would advise me what is good. so please help me out here. I would be very very grateful.

I dont necessarily require a skilled job (I am an IT peson who manages whole IT infrastructure with lots of years of skills and experience). I can do with any job as long as it pays the bill and just give me a fresh start from everything.


Anyway, that is all for now

I guess I will be visiting the forums quite often now.

Oh, i am 30 btw.

Welcome Hobnobs, like the reasoning behind the name

can't say I can give you any advise as to where to go but as you mentioned Portugal perhaps having a look that way first could be a start.
there's a forum for Portugal. http://britishexpats.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=89,
so maybe have a chat with the people over there that have done it, going through it and thinking about it.

good luck

Hey MrsFychan!

hehe, thank you! I didn't want to use my head and just used the biscuit name whilst munching it.

I am looking at the Portuguese forum as we speak :-)

Thanks for the welcome

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.
