do it as well as you can,but learn to do it better
first 'discovered' France in '83 - spent 3 weeks wandering about on the Kawi heading for the Med coast, but loved the rest of the country we found, on the way down and back ...Not a high sucess rate ....seen lots come and go over the years, even seen a few come,go, come back then go again , language barrier ,no friends, missing children or grandchildren,isolation,lack of work, iirc figures are about 70% go back within 5yrs and I would say that about aligns with what we see, not many incoming at moment, brexit has made it harder, getting registered to work is a bit harder, not impossible by any means but weeds out those who are not really committed.
and have had many weeks wandering it since.
Concluded in '83 that it'd be a bloody great place to live and had been working in that direction for years ...
very nearly went for it in '07/8, 'til the sh1t hit the fan globally and the sale of my biz premises, which I'd been negotiating for years, went belly up, when the buyers went tits up.
Conditional contracts mean sweet FA when the Co. no longer exists
then got diagnosed in 2010 and that knackered any hopes. no way are they going to take on the 'burden' of my weekly treatment that keeps me upright
edit ..... plus of course the advent of grand kids has really bollo-ed any chances
