Default Hello, New to BE

Hello everyone, I have been reading the forum for a while now and I must say I have read alot of good points on here, so thank you.

I still live in the UK and I do love it here, but I feel like I want to live somewhere else. But as people have said living somewhere and having a holiday there are very different.

Oz has been on my mind for sometime, but I like Gibraltar as well. How do people choose where they want to live?

Anyway, I really just wanted to say Hello to you guys and hopefully will be chatting to you on here soon

Welcome to the Forum, Choosing where to live is a minefield really. Personally I have been on the move since I left home and it is more the adventure of a new country for me. It's got to the point where even England seems foreign to me.

I kind of like not being able understand the folk around me, It keeps me on my toes But for some folk it's a good holiday experience others it's meeting a new partner and relocating to their home nation. Any road once again welcome to the forum, Have a good look around and im sure your new host nation will reveal itself.

Thank you Ka Ora! I do seem to fall in love with any place near the sea, as you do! I just love new places and meeting new people. Maybe I should live somewhere for a short time, see how it pans out????

I lived in Gibraltar when I was alot younger, as my dad was in the army, recently went back and I just loved it. I think I have itchy feet to be honest. I want to see the world

Hi Zeldazeb

Welcome to BE.
I would advise you to take a look around a variety of our forums to see what places appeal. You never know, reading other peoples experiences may just help you decide.
Then try spending a few months in the place you choose before you decide to move lock stock and barrel. That way you will get an indication of what it would be like to live there.

Good luck with wherever you decide to go

Hi Dread, thank you, very good advise. I had a good look round yesterday and still not 100% but leaning towards Oz at the min. Looking into going out there for a few mths, see how it goes.

Thanks again

Go for it - you never know until you try for a few months. And if you decide it's not for you, there are plenty of other beautiful places in the world.
