Default Where to start

Hello everyone new to this, I'm a married UK citizen and have this dream of living abroad like a lot of people on here. I'm employed as a plumber and my wife works in a office. We have no children but want to see if I can live out my dream. We are right at the very start of this so just looking for some help and pointers of what to do.

Thanks

Hello, welcome to BE
I guess a good place to start is narrowing down your options a bit by working out exactly what you want and don't want from a potential move as well as what is feasible with your skills, finances, etc. Are you wanting a warmer climate? Do you speak any foreign languages? Do you have any relatives living overseas? Is there a dream destination in mind?
Hope you've found your way round the forum ok - yell out if you need anything. If you have a specific destination in mind, jump in and pick the brains of posters on that area forum

Hi there and welcome to the forum

Suggest you head over to the Canada section of the forum and ask some questions in there and see what is possible.

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.

Rosemary
