THE HITS AND MISSES OF A NEW LIFE ABROAD

THE HITS AND MISSES OF A NEW LIFE ABROAD At the moment I have a cold … Not earth-shattering news, admittedly – but, when you haven’t had one for approximately four years, it’s remarkable enough to warrant a note in the diary. But the bug – probably brought specially from England by a visiting family member – also prompted a train of thought about what you may miss when living overseas.

CONSIDERING A NEW LIFE AS A LANDLORD?

CONSIDERING A NEW LIFE AS A LANDLORD? Some things you need to know… If you’re considering a new life overseas but you own property in the UK already, you’ll have two options to consider.

After all, there appear to be so many acronyms in computer technology it’s almost a language in its own right. However, if you do decide to invest in property overseas, a VPN is likely to be your friend.

FINDING A NEW SCHOOL OVERSEAS

FINDING A NEW SCHOOL OVERSEAS If you speak to anyone considering a new life overseas, they’ll probably tell you one of the biggest obstacles to moving abroad is education. It’s not an easy decision to disrupt a child’s schooling, uproot them and then expect them to cope with a strange curriculum, perhaps in a different language. After all, telling a child to “man up and enjoy the adventure” probably isn’t the best way forward – but there are a number of more positive options parents can consider.
