A Place in France by the Sea
As soon as I can figure out how I'm going to do it, I'm going to up and buy an apartment like this with a view overlooking the harbour in Nice, France.
It's priced at 125,000 euros which is still a hefty price tag for a one-bedroom apartment, but I'm used to seeing Vancouver condominium prices, so this actually sounds pretty reasonable to Jeff and I.
"Hmmmm...let's move there", we said, looking at one another. We really liked Nice. At the risk of sounding trite, it was nice. :)
I've been spending a pleasant evening looking at European real-estate pages. England and Ireland are right out of my budget's range, but France seems quite affordable as long as you don't decide to live in the Paris environs or in, say, Monaco or Cannes.
For instance, the French manor above is listed at 330,000 euros: a pretty penny, but maybe I have some friends out there who would like to go sharesies and move to France with us?
Mind you, my French is rather rusty, but c'est la vie....
