Having read through Andheaths adventures i was almost inspired to log my own but then common sense prevailed....nearly.
I know everyone on this and other forums all have their dreams etc and i am know different. I would love to hear other peoples, thats if they want to share them.
The highs and lows.
Ever since i can remember i have always loved the Greek way, dont know what inspired it (sunshine may be a clue).My partner and me both fell in love with Kefalonia and even to this day we still do, but Crete was always the choice for all year round living. We like most people here have loads of Greek friends.
Our ongoing move has been a serious of highs and lows from the putting the hoos on the market at a bad time to all the crap from the planning department for a garage that has been up for 13years, lawyers wanting us to pay for indemnities ,extra this, extra that and so on .Then finally the clouds cleared and all of a sudden the dream was nearly there.
Inbetween that theres the apartment hunt, furniture, tax numbers etc etc and jobs and stress levels to match the earthquakes....9.3 and rising.
Clarity and hindsight are wonderful things and as we all know they are in short supply. We would not change anything we have done or set out to do as we beleive its our destiny(quote from Louises friends) but they havent seen the the low points when we very nearly took the house of the market(3 weeks ago) because it all seemed doomed to fail, the tears and arguments (minor ish). But i wont preach to the converted or the experienced because we have learned from other peoples experiences on this and other sites and for that i say thanks.
Hence the Scottish invasion has begun in earnest..well almost....Istron here we come, well come the 1st May, walls are being built by RIC and companions but the offer of drinks on me may be to good an offer to all. Thers still a wee bit more to do and going by what ive learned so far thers still a long long long way to go. See you in Istron welcome one and all....bring your wallets
