I don't want to live in Toronto i don't like the city... but Halifax on the other hand!
I'm curious if living aboard year round near Halifax is feasible.
Hello, Jude + wife (and all the other folks coming from NS ) !
... I am new on this forum, too. And with interests I found your thread.
Actually I am (still) living in Europe
. Because of different reasons I discovered by my best friend that East coast
might be a great place. My friend was Dr. med in South America
and I accompanied her during her procedure being an immigrant in 2007/2008... with her whole family
. She is living in Toronto, more precisely she stepped down in Missisauga, and meanwhile living in Hamilton.
As I live for now in a 1.8 million metropol, 2nd biggest in Germany
, I'd prefer Nova Scotia because of its lower density of population... And as I was professional sailor in the 90th for me NS has a wonderful maritime atmosphere (even knowing that the Lobster fishing industries went through hard times). Great landscape, relaxed people... and "low prize living" (so I have noticed from far distance compared to other regions in CAN).
So hopefully here I can find some "support" by experienced ones to do the switch step-by-step.... and best, realize a "living on a boat". - I did already the online immigration test, and Canada government
said: You are welcome, come over ! :-)
But it needs lots of smaller steps to make an emigration-immigration to something successfully. Not too difficult anymore with the Internet
... and flight distance from central Europe
, London) to Halifax is only 6.5 hours, roughly.
Many questions on the list, but for today I just wanted to knock on the door gently. Laters some more questions, maybe.
Have a good day !
warm greetings from "old Europe"
P.S.: I know living on a boat... I skippered professionally a 15 meter Catamaran
for a hotel
owner over two seasons and even lived in winter on it. Its a single
built Aluminium catamaran
What boat you have (in mind) for your own living on the water ? Did you make it to get your Oyster
