I think it must be really isolate and looks good in the sun but not in the bitter cold and rain.Also what would you do for a job, not sure what they Wi-Fi is like 🙂

There would have to be so many conditions I doubt they'd have me.

  1. I would have to be 20 years younger
  2. My family would have to be with me
  3. There would have to be top notch medical

On the plus side:

  1. Hopefully no crime
  2. No willpower required unless Tesco there!
  3. Being at one with nature and growing stuff.

The money alone wouldn't be enough to tempt me. But if I thought the area was nice, and I could genuinely see myself being happy living there then I might consider moving to a place like this.

I don’t think I would cope with the bleak winters or the terrain. The £50K bond certainly wouldn’t tempt me although I assume property is much cheaper than SE England.

This would be my dream but unfortunately I am not young anymore and my children have all grown up so I probably wouldn’t be able to apply.

I’m pretty sure I could manage with that as I lead quite an isolated lifestyle anyway. If there’s a post office for my work to be sent then I’d be ok!!
