No, not the TV programme..... Has anybody on here ever decided - more or less on a whim - to up-sticks and move somewhere else totally different? I know people move house regularly, but there is usually a reason - a new job in a different area, needing more space, etc. The reason I ask is because I'm thinking about doing this. I've lived in Reading since I came here to university in 1993. I've spent the last 11 years commuting either into London or Potters Bar. Over the last couple of years I've been suffering more and more from stress and panic attacks, and I'm convinced it is to do with the fact that everybody in the South East is stressed. Life is lived at 200 mph and it seems totally relentless. I live in a quiet cul-de-sac, but open my bedroom window at 2am on any morning of the week, and I can hear traffic, and sirens, trains, aircraft etc. There is never silence. I've made the decision that it's time to move. I've always loved the sea and the mountains (I grew up on a Welsh hillside!) and I've decided that I would like to move to North Wales - Angelsey or the Llyn Peninsula. I've never lived in either location, but I spent many childhood holidays on Anglesey, and my grandparents lived in Llyn. So I have very happy memories of both areas, but no real ties any more. So, what I am asking is basically has anybody on here moved to an area of the country / world where you have no tangible ties? Do you have any advice? Were there any pitfalls? Are you glad you did it? Would you recommend it? Or was it a case of the grass being greener and the worst thing you ever did?
