    What would it take for you to want to move areas or abroad and if so, where would you move?

    I was born in London and have loved living here all my life and have always said I would never want to leave unless something special happened and for the first time in my life, I am actually willing to move and don't particularly mind where I go as long as we're happy.

    What I want to know is what would it take for you to want to move, especially with the worlds current economical climate and where would you prefer?

    France, west or south. To leave? I would need very few family ties here and a similar paying job or similar prestige.

    If they ever bring the congestion charge to Birmingham, then i'd be gone :thumbsup:

    seriously thinking of moving to Florida in ten years time, the kids will all be in thier twenties by then, doubt my parents will still be with us :-( would be sad to leave my friends but Im sure we wouldnt be short of visitors

    If I won the lottery I would consider moving to the south of France.

    I wouldn't mind moving to istanbul.

    Interesting that one

    I would second Istanbul - or anywhere in Turkey - but love Istanbul

    Don't really have any ties keeping me here now. We throw about the idea of moving to new zeland every so often. May even do it some day!

    New York!

    Yep like the people there are nice too and the weathers great most of the time.

    would love that but toooooo pricey

    thekudos;3802220

    I would love to stay for a long period but not forever.

    At one point I was looking into what it would cost for me and three brothers to live in relative luxury for a couple of months or whatever the maximum is allowed by the US on a short term lease on an apartment.

    Idea was that we could save up for a fair while then pool our money for good digs, but it never panned out.

    I wouldn't especially want to move out of the UK but I'd like to be further north nearer to our families!! If I 'followed the sun' to keep warm in old age, I'd have to go to Italy.
    To be honest, I don't really have roots anywhere (although like Loupomm I grew up, mainly, with two Aunties along the entry and grandparents down the road and the rest of my mum's family scattered around - but they've all gone now) so I don't mind where I am. Like you RFMan - happy together where-ever!!

    i would move to australia, wouldnt wanna live there forever though

    At some point i'm considering going down to live in Cornwall, although my baby sister is in the North West, so it's too far away at the moment. I like to get back regularly, they grow up so fast when they are young

    Prepare to have the highest water rates/council tax/energy costs with no public transport, low wages, constant gales!! Talk to kareokecol about Cornwall before you move here!!
    It's OK in other ways!! Not the NHS though.

    Hmm, bills would be an issue, not public transport, i very very very rarely use it, as i have a car, wages is also not a problem, as i am opefullly developing a computer and web design business, so would be making my own money, rather than relying on a job. Again, gales are something i can live with :thumbsup:

    if i had no ties it would be the south of france

    Damascus, Istanbul, or Karachi

    We've moved twice purely for similar reasons to the ops description.

    We moved from our home town to Cornwall - a much slower pace of life - very relaxed.

    However, Cornwall isn't the picture postcard life you imagine, it has it's rough parts, no prospects & local people who are rude, selfish & up their own behinds.
    Also the schools, hospitals, services etc aren't much cop & few & far between & also the wages are diabolically low!

    Earlier this year we moved to Dorset, just outside Bournemouth.
    Better schools, hospitals, services, shops, jobs, money & a bit more life but still fairly relaxed in a funny kind of way - oh yeah & still near great beaches!!
    The trick is to research where tou wanna move to & move only for the right reasons.
    And don't let any people who are set in their own ways hold you back!

    Good ole' Shengis, never fails to raise a smile :-D

    If only i could have got my hands on a green card, i would have been in florida now!

    4 years ago i could have got myself a job at gfriedflooring.com/ paying $100,000 pa, but as you work on a self employed basis, they couldn't sponsor me :-(

    Labour getting re-elected again! Mind you, I said that three years ago. Only another two years of them to go, at most.
