I know Huckleberry picked up and moved to central Mexico recently, but has anyone else moved abroad? The significant other and I are contemplating moving to either Spain or italy with the only conditions being that we are near the ocean and mountains. Just curious to hear about the experience of others.

I'm expecting to ask you this same question in a few years ; ) Thinking of moving into Lance's old place in Girona...

I did..and ended up on this end. Oh wait, that's not what you're asking for.

So typically folks moving abroad will do a lot of griping about how things were so much better where they came from. I actually have a friend who moved to US as a student...couldn't handle it....moved back to NL...couldn't handle that anymore and now she's back in US. The grass is rarely greener with a move...you win some you lose some. It's all a balance.

Agree somewhat Jos. In my case the grass was really greener and it is for that reason I'm returning. After a year living there I am confident in my choice to return. Between the culture, people, food, healthcare and climate there really isn't a comparison. Not to mention Chatto and Socio!

He just turned 72 and is excited at the prospect of my return. He now does a lot of mountain bike masters races which he has been winning frequently. He also got bit by the endurance bug and has done 24 hour mtb races.
