Leaving The UK - The Key Points

Over five million British citizens have moved overseas.
Four thousand more depart permanently each week.
Depending on location, your new lifestyle could involve:
    Fewer hours commuting & working - more time for family & self.
    Mortgage free living - or a lower mortgage.
    Bluer skies, warmer weather & shorter winters.
    A healthier lifestyle - more time spent in outdoor activities.
    Friendlier communities - happier, more relaxed people.
Be careful though, you may become one of the minority who suffers:
    Severe homesickness that forces a return to the UK.
    Disillusionment when finances, work or housing turn sour.
    Severe culture shock when you realise you cannot adapt to the country you have moved to.
