Where We Live
It doesn’t matter whether it’s by the water, in a town or city, or in the country like me, we all have our ideal home.
The transition from living in the country then moving to a town can be pretty daunting for some, it certainly was for me hence why I moved back to the country.
However my dream home was always oversea’s and by the water, preferably running a B&B. So, what happened?
I left it way to late, the plan was to move there whilst my children were young but I blinked and the years had flown by, the children went to school and it was to little to late.
Although we are now into 2018 and my girls are approaching 34, 19 & 18 I’m now in a position to consider buying a holiday home overseas, so lets see what happens.
Where we spend the major part of our lives is of course called home and no matter where that is we all dream of that perfect location in which to just pack a suitcase and go, for some it may be in their own country in a caravan, for others it’s a place in the sun.
The best part of having a holiday home in the sun is the fact that we can choose where we want to spend winter especially if you live in the UK.
There’s a certain satisfaction from living in a rural part of the country, occupying your own space giving you a sence of freedom from the unpredictability of the outside world.
It may not be for everyone but it’s definitely for me, and my family, or should I refract that? It’s for me and my hubby, our youngest daughters prefer the town, I suppose it is hard for them right now with their friends, school and job being twelve miles away.
California (My second home) I love, I was never a fan of the idea of living in the US until I visited a number of years ago, actually I’m still not a fan of living there, Well, not on a permanent basis anyway.
I do travel back regularly and visit many other places San Francisco, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Hollywood, Santa Monica etc while there, because I love the Californian way of life, I love the freedom of the clean air, the shopping malls, the people, the freeway. Yes, the freeway you just can’t beat the four-hour drive from San Diego to Las Vegas through the Nevada Desert.
So where will our holiday home be? Right now I’m not sure but it will be in Europe, first there are a number of factors we need to take into consideration.
Due to the change in currency e.g The Euro the cost of living has gone through the roof leaving many families in dire straights.
One thing is for sure, no matter which country we choose it will be in a rural location with that traditional way of life but still close enough to everything we need.
