Also, during my decision making time, an intruder broke into my cottage and I had to turn to local friends for help.
It made me a little scared to come home late at night when I was all alone. I decided to move in August and by October I was living and working in the US. I used Pickfords, the most amazing moving company in the UK, their US equivalent is called Allied.
Very quickly after moving, I started regretting leaving the UK.
Even though my parents had been so helpful with arrangements, I just missed the independence I had created in the UK.
But make sure you visit ‘back home’ before you take the plunge…
Be sure of what you really want in tens years from now…
make a choice based on your life, not your surroundings.
The society is very ‘real’ and this reality is very touching.
Meeting new people, whether rich or living on very little, there was an appreciation for life and music too which was a bonus.
