A word can change a mind. A sentence can change a life. A book can change the world

Moving home is considered to be one of the most stressful things you can do. I’ve never had a problem with moving, in fact it’s usually been pretty easy. I’ve worked in many cities in England, from Newcastle to London, Belfast to Birmingham, Ipswich to Epsom and even had a stint in Madrid and Paris.

I’ve turned down a few job offers in exotic locations, but perhaps my two regrets were not moving to New York USA and Winchester UK. I’ve been to America, Los Angeles, but only stayed for a couple of weeks. The New York job offer was almost 30 years ago and all I can remember about it was the location, Times Square. I was sorely tempted if only because as a programmer it would have looked great on my CV. But no, I turned it down because in retrospect I didn’t fancy living in such a busy location. Winchester, in England, on the other hand is somewhere I would have dearly loved to have worked. But down to the last two candidates and I lost out. C’est la vie.

However in my jobs, moving to new locations has been straightforward.

Here in Cyprus I’ve lived in Paphos and Larnaca. But perhaps the shortest duration was our first home in Secret Valley, just outside of Paphos. We came, we moved and withing a few weeks we had moved away again. It was a period in our early days here, ten years ago, that was full of turmoil interwoven with a steep learning curve. But that was then, and you can read a free sample of my move to Cyprus if you scroll down the page.

Today, it’s perhaps our last but one move, or maybe even our last move. But at least it’s pretty easy because we’re only moving to the bungalow next door to our current home. As I get older, I like my home comforts too much to stray to far!

Told you I found moving easy.

As a English expat author living in Cyprus, you may think my life revolves around cocktails by the pool. You would be wrong. In ten years on the island I’ve had my fair share of adventures and interesting experiences.
