chuckle.gif that's awful! rofl.gif Morning Octoroni hug.gif Budapest, yeah another wonderful place. I've been told there's a little piece of coast in Turkey called The Blue Mile that's the best kept secret on the planet, apparently incomparable. Course that was a Turk that told me that chuckle.gif

We bought this place in 2005 and it's 'value' has more than doubled from what we paid. Insane. What sort of climate are you looking for? Close to city? Farmland? Maybe I can suggest a few areas to look at.

Turkey is on my list of places to go, the history is incredible. And Holland lots of family there. beercheer.gif


We are looking for a dry winter (as much as that is possible), so my nephew suggests Princeton, Apex, Osoyoos is too expensive gaah.gif but that's my first choice, my second choice is Lillooet. I know Lillooet has lots of snow, but it's so beautiful.

I'm also looking on the Sunshine Coast, but all I see are shacks for alot of $ so far. gaah.gif

Thanks Shadow, I could use all the intel I can get.

cheers.gif

Best advice is listen to the locals, they know and the moneymakers don't. yay.gif

I'd love to visit Socotra if it wasn't so damned dangerous. 13.gif

Princeton gets more snow than just about about anywhere (hubby grew up there). Lillooet too, hot in summer and snow in winter, they're fairly mountainous. Also huge indian reserve there, not much for amenities and a long way from anywhere. Apex is a ski resort. Kamloops is arid and a really nice city, lots of agriculture, Osoyoos too, arid but lots of agriculture. Osoyoos is BC's 'hotspot'. Cache Creek, Merritt (windy alla time), small towns with very arid climates but easy access to anywhere.

It looks like an intriguing place to visit. I wonder what the food is like.

Dorstenia gigas - WTF?

Whaaa? damned.gif

"Tarantulas in British Columbia? You bet⎯or at least a few “tarantuloids,” their close relatives. Six of the seven found in Canada live here. Though far smaller than their large, hairy cousins in other parts of the world, B.C.’s tarantuloids play an important ecological role in our environment, primarily through insect control."

BC has about every climate on earth in it's borders. Glaciers to deserts, palm trees to permafrost. Right now it's about 10C at my house :brrr: so you don't want the Chilcotin lol.
