Research carried out by a UK travel related firm (I’ve still to find out which) has found that more British people are opting for a lifestyle where they work at home, but live in another country.
These lifestyle worshipers opt for living in different parts of Europe or even in North Africa and a commute to work via an airplane.
In an effort to improve their quality of life, see more of their family and get on the property ladder, these Britons are willing to put in up to 6 hours commuting from their chosen abodes to the UK’s major cities.
Could it be these disgruntled semi-expats are on to something? Are their numbers swelling year-on-year? Cheap air tickets, fast rail links and even ferries offering deals, all are all contributors to this growing work/lifestyle trend.
I must admit, the idea sounds inviting, especially when you factor in our un-predictable weather, but what are the pros and cons of actually carry out or even putting together a plan to change your life in such a drastic way? And what cost in the long run to the environment
Ultimately choosing to live in one country and work in another is not new, it just seems that the increasing numbers of ordinary people embarking on this way of living is sounding alarm bells in some quarters.
