I am not really qualified to answer properly at present, as just in the process of moving. Flight booked for 31st March - one way!
Going to live with a man I have known for 10 years, but only a couple of weeks per year here and there, so don't really 'know' him. Have given up a fairly good job here in the UK, let out my house, sold most of my possessions (which i found i didn't really need or even like in some cases!), sent the rest of them to Corfu, along with my cat! Not sure if i will secure a job in time for the season start, but fingers crossed.
Having said all that, I will be 40 this year and have decided that after 39.5 years of 'toeing the line', it is time for me to follow my heart, and start to live life to the full instead of just putting one foot in front of the other. Scared? Too right! too scared to go? not on your life - life IS for living as so many others have said.
As 2tonsils said, i hope i am suitably prepared for the lack of urgency, but have to say - the red tape i encountered here trying to wrap this life up was far more than i expected - but fingers crossed - well worth it!
I will be watching this thread with interest as to how others are getting on. Wish me luck!
