Its a 'roots thing' Corialanous and we should still feel British wherever we are and be proud of it. I am now officially an '0ld lady' (no way is 70 middle aged!) and I do think of family and the best of Britain more than I used to. However, I think 'acceptance' is the name of the game. Accepting what life has to offer and Bulgaria does it for me financially and the quiet lifestyle in the country which I could never afford in Britain anymore. Nothing really beats the coach journey I made over the Cotswolds in the Spring a few years ago passing beautiful cottages with pretty gardens in bloom and the 4x4 in the drive. This is my romantic view of Britain which I could never afford before or now, but my children are all doing well and living in pleasant areas so I am happy for them.

Its a difficult question to answer and not one that is going to be the same for all, having lived in Bulgaria I would say that in some ways its does have a lot to offer financially, but for me I live in the country side anyway in a 200 year old cottage with the local shop being 6 miles away, this was perfect peace and tranquility as I would describe it, however this wouldn't have suited everyone? I think looking back what I really enjoyed about the move was the Bulgarians and their life style to some extent, however whet did I mis about the UK? I would say the ease at which I could get anything I wanted without having to draw pictures or use a translator, I didn't mis any of the food stuffs at all, I did however miss the decent roads even though I have a 4x4 I still would have preferred to drive on a decent road when I wanted to and not because I had to :shocked1:I think there would be a whole list added here if everyone was to think about it ? it may only be something small but none the less it will be missed, but we just have to live without it and adapt after all if we wanted to live as an English man then we would have stayed put

I really only miss food from the UK, Indian food and Chinese food of course, there is nothing like a good Ruby from the Indian restaurant around the corner. On the other hand I don't miss the junk mail that used to arrive every day in the mail box, including of course, at least two invitations to take out another credit card and I don't miss someone phoning me on a Sunday when I am eating dinner and trying to sell me double glazing. s

I don't really miss anything now I did in the beginning but after a while you learn to adapt I agree with what nets has said there are little things I think we all miss but they aren't life threatening so we do without them and live our life differently to how we did in the uk after all that's why most of us left for a new way of life
