Default The journey begins.

Hi

Am experiencing a turmoil of feelings! Excitement is not strong enough a word! Nervous about the journey ahead but am very much looking forward to treading our chosen pathway.

We have started the process of purchasing our property. I will post more details when I am able.

Hope you are all well and happy valentines day!

The very Best of Luck Max & do keep us informed and of course do ask for help when you need it. We have some lovely, helpful members on here whom I sure will point you in the right direction.

I'm hoping to come out at Easter so it would be great to meet up,

Zelda

Hi all

I am flying out on the 9th to register on the island......wow I am very exited and the move can't happen quick enough.

There have been various responses form joy to tears when we told family and friends. Most tears dissolved when they realised they can come to visit!

The biggest decision for me was to leave my boys. A 24 year old who is doing a PHD and lives with his beautiful girlfriend and a 21 year old in his second year at university. I worry about the younger as his girlfriend goes home to the USA in Sept so this could be a challenging time....he may decide to follow her!

So much to organise before move day but we are keeping our home here as my husband will need a base here for work. This makes the move for my easier as I only need a few things initially and Alan can bring things out as I decide what I want!

I am looking forward to starting the next chapter..... Hoot to meet many of you along the way

Maxalan, get your self set up with skype and a camera and you will find you can have as much contact as you want. We left 3 girls and 3 grandchildren behind but they will agree with me when I say that we now spend quality time with them when they come, even if this is for just a weekend, more than the snatched coffees on the way to or from the supermarket that we were used to. My eldest granddaughter is at Uni and again via skype keeps us upto date with all her news and even uses us for some of her projects. Good Luck

Lollipop, I was about to say the same thing. Ensure all family and good friends have skype set up on their computers before you leave, practice whilst you are at home and then you can speak free of charge and see each other as often as you like. Its free to set up, just download from the link.
Good luck and have fun with this new venture. Remind us before you come and we can meet up in Marina Cafe for a glass of something to celebrate and welcome you, I am sure Sparky will be around too.

Thanks for the advice. I have Skype already as I have friends in Austrailia so I just need to set up various family and friends. It would be good to meet up for a drink!

See you all soon!
