Hello from sunny New Mexico

Travel Forums Introductions Hello from sunny New Mexico

I live in a small town , good for hiking, rock climbing, but not much else to do. Dry and hot climate, a little snow in the winter. Have to drive 2 hours to get to a good restaurant or a mall. It has a lot of local artists, and new age culture. The Gila National Forest is a few minutes away. May be a place some of you would like, but it is not for me. I am looking forward to selling my home, and hopefully moving to England. Where is the question? I have a 7 year old, and would like to live somewhere affordable, with a low crime rate, and a good schools. Any suggestions or info would be appreciated. Is anyone interested in swapping homes for the summer? I have a five bedroom 2 bath on 1/2 an acre. It is a quiet neigborhood and has a university,WNMU. I went to a web and it stated, some places in Winchester,Horsham,Tunbridge wells were affordable. I grew up in livepool until I was 8 and came to the states. Besides a few visits don't really know about living in England.

Hi Nina, welcome. I would love to switch houses but I only have one room:(. I think I would like New Mexico, seems like an interesting area (area of aliens at Roswell). Have you heard of Ciudad Juarez at the other side of the border in Mexico? Never go there!;)

Hi Nina

Welcome to TP - if you are interested in moving to the UK with a child l would suggest you would get more of a response by posting a thread in the Europe Forum where members could give you their opinions.

I hope you find TP useful in your move!

Hi Nina!

Welcome to TP!

I guess you wouldn't be willing to swap houses and live in rural Illinois?? Just kidding! You'd have to make the same 2 hour drive into Chicago for a decent restaurant and we don't even have Gila National Park. Beerman and I were probably living in Chicago at the same time you were growing up there.

I agree with Purdy about posting your request in the Europe Forum to receive more replies (besides just a hello) since this is the Introductions Forum. I also recommend contacting Bilan (djiboutici) as she is always full of great ideas and advice.

Best wishes on your moving endeavor and see you in the forums! ;)
