Work is forcing me to spend time abroad. I love it, but I can only scrape by in French. I have no other linguistic skills. But, across Benelux and Nordic, I've yet to hit anyone who doesn't speak English.

So, language might not always be a barrier.

I'd second the travel. Wish I had.

What about communities? I know of this one looking for new members

Domestic Facilities Management is from the West Coast of Scotland - near Ayr.

Houses with land can be quite cheap although the weather isn't that clement and in her opinion neither is the culture.

A friend has property in France - he says that the locals wont touch the sort of 'charming' rural properties you see advertised here so the real price of them is quite low by UK standards

Failing that Midsomer Norton/Radstock has quite a lot of miners cottages with big gardens
