I moved from a pretty built up real busy brawling area into the more scenic village lifestyle...most people seem to settle into country life but I cant seem to make it home. As beautiful as the scenery, seasides, mountains and hills are I miss the busy life, the hussle and bussel etc. Thing is my kids have basically grown up in the village and gone to school here (age 5&7, we have lived here 4 yrs), to take them back into city life would be a culture shock and now with their little perfect English accents they would probably be outsiders back in school in the city, especially brummie land where speaking duffy broken english means you fit in. However my wife & I are struggling to make this home. I think we will stick it out for the sake of the kids, it was for them we came here in the first place but we are struggling and the temptation to go back is great.
Have you ever moved from the city into a village? Or from a village into the city? How did you cope, was it better or worse?
