Yes I guess the world is too small for me, having been to so many, lost count.
However, while doing my job working all over the world for the last five years, I have been approached by an international French company to accept a high level management job in the region of Morbihan in Bretagne, France.
I have accepted the job with the blessing of my family,and I will be moving there by June 1st.
Needless to say, my time on the internet might change, do not know yet. Nevertheless, I will always come back here as much as I can after that date.
It will just be a matter of settling in and have internet access again.

well today is packing day, moving is always hell no matter how many times you have done it. And for me its just a partial move as the family will come later once the house is sold.
I will go to a hotel, then buy my new furniture, and then enter the apt when all is there, in a few days. Work however, starts June 1st no matter what.
The first week will be hectic, then all will be smooth out afterward.
My last day of internet will be tomorrow, then might take a few days to have it connected in the apartment.
Cheers

well quick update after driving from Anvers to BRussels, train to paris nord metro to paris montparnasse ,train to vannes, and car drive back to my new home.
the move is going well, two of my kids starts school in sept 2011, and the other has job interview here to move or will stay in Versailles in a student dorm to finish his degree one year. The house there is for sale, and we are just waiting for my wife to settle out her job, put the house with notary and move ,hopefully all will be done before Christmas.
Its not easy moving an entire family of grown ups teens, one is sad as will be away from girlfriend (now in Calpe Spain for vacation together with her family).They will have time to visit and grow, distance sometimes makes love stronger/
Cheers

Pedmar,

You are being kind when you say "it is not easy moving an entire family with grown up teens" That is a massive understatement!
Making the move with one was horrendous throughout all the pre-move time - I was ruining her life; 2 days into the new location - it was the best thing "we" ever did.

I don't envy you and your wife!

Just came back from Paris two days by porte maillot. My house is on sales already people visiting, and sold furniture on free site online in France wow! slow for my taste but getting there,hopefully all this move will end by Christmas.

Well Madrid was rainy,heavy rains at times. I was walking by Manuel Becerra and took cover at a bus stop, then reach my hotel. traffic as usual was horrendous, we had meetings by 9am and usually began by 10am lol!
It look a bit dirty that area of Madrid for what I remember it. Anyway its always good to come back the city you once lived and love.
Now back to Paris/Versailles on all saints day !

well now I have two real estate agents trying to sell my house. BUt the market as the news are sonegative is not good, will need time to do it.
in the meantime traveling all over the Morbihan breton, very beautiful areas all documented in my blog. There is so many places to see and all close to the coasts that I love so much.
will try to survive the winter and hope for no snow and have the house sold so next summer can have a blast here.

well back to Versailles/Paris this coming weekend, was in Paris last Jan 30-31. Been to Mexico and Italy. More trips planned shortly abroad.
however, my house still on sale, some folks giving very low offers,and then the market is not doing good here either. So the double residence continues.
my boys came back from a ski trip to Franche-Comté in the Jura rgion of France. One came back sick but now ok.
Life goes on...

well its -6C and snowing about 5 inches to be ready to leave shortly back to Brittany on the road lol!!! oh I have done it, when you learned to drive in the NJ/NY area everything else is a piece of cake.

I am going back to Mexico DF, Havana,Cuba, and Baku/Bucharest ,Romania on business trips. Before that will be back here in Versailles/Paris area by Feb 17. IN the planning on business trips are Brazil and South Africa, plus a get together with friends in June in Bergamo Italy.

So yes I move a lot, unfortunately not to Madrid yet, will need to visit Vigo first as we have factory there too. Maybe in august the big European vacation month can sneak with the family there in Madrid. HOwever, the wife is leaning towards Granada/Sevilla, and I am insisting on getting by Madrid. I cant visit Spain without smelling that Retiro and having my childhood patatas bravas in Docamar,plaza quintana line 5 quintana metro.simply the best.

Madrid was wonderful as always, not much time but was able to sneak out of Barajas T4 and visit Santiago Bernabeu area ,visit El Corte Ingles and the Real Madrid store so got some shirts of Real Madrid for my boys.
Now back in France, waiting now for the closing date of my house in Versailles, and the whole family arrives by TGV train today at 3pm or 15h to stay a week here with me.

I am going back to Brittany today with my gang, at least better to know the house is with contract for sale and the folks already sold their home, financing looks good. So light at the end of the tunnel.
Difficult to move about just on business trips, and cant wait for the family to be together again to start traveling at leisure. I am trying to be with a group at Bergamo,Italy in June if all goes well.

Now i don't recall us ever talking about that Pedmar and yet my past is finance in a trading room in The City ! Not that I ever want to go back to doing that work ! So i'm guessing that your South Africa destination is either Jo'burg or Pretoria .. I know the Central Bank is in Pretoria but most commercial banks are in Jo'Burg . I spent 2 weeks , some years ago in Capetown .. Fantastic city . So beautiful .

My husband is in corporate finance from the banking side. He has talked many times about how they don't listen to a plan- frustrating, but sometimes they do and things work out so much better for them.

well finally will close my house on sept 14 if all goes well, so much paperwork,nver been involved and so much crap in my life.

The EDF electricity folks were charging an empty apartment here not mine lol!! They ask to pay right away or cut electricity; Told them no way is not my mistake, they needed to reimburse my payments to that empty apartment and then will pay them in three parts. They agree.

well many others but too tire, now back to work ,vacation is over, but will be in Madrid sept 18-21 on business. Maybe have a thread here to meet there one night
Cheers

well just to finish the TV saga with Orange. finally the technician came in , and told us we need to have a telephone line next to the decoder for the tv.

well it was too much, did not believe it. Saw a tv antenna shop near my house, and ask to come in. The guy just installed two liveplugs and it work!!! better than orange! Now have TV
and the beat goes on.
