one is blessed with mountains, lakes and friendly people.
the other is a damp grey shit hole with people that have forgotten how to smile. (try walking down oxford st and see how friendly everyone is)

people move to a totally different beat here and in general are less concerned with the rat race mentality and material wealth.

screw the holiday, just move here. (even though i think there are enough english IT techs here to sink the country :crazy: )

on the property note, it was touched on before but you really must look into it.
if you don't sell your house in england you can re-mortgage it getting the interest rates from england to invest/buy property here.

we own a house in sweden and make use of the 2.9% interest rate to buy property/toys here. yes 2.9% !!!!

The UK is blessed with plenty of mountains and lakes (one even has a monster in) you just cant see them for the low grey cloud expelling rain all the time:-)

give me steep dropping trails and lung busting climbs over monotonous switchbacks through flat forest anyday.

Sounds like you were in Norfolk and asked the wrong people!
