“Life in Hong Kong became very difficult and uncertain. We decided there was no future for us there and started looking elsewhere. Our check-list included such things as personal safety, quality of life, ease of access, the ability to settle permanently, a reliable civic infrastructure and an open and welcoming local population. Not many places can tick all those boxes, so Guernsey scored very high marks on our list of possible destinations”
“Living in Guernsey has improved our work/life balance by far. Because everything is on your doorstep or a very short drive away, you can get so much done in a short space of time instead of wasting time in the car. I can walk the dogs, go for swim and do a food shop all before starting on the emails! Being able to walk by the sea really sets you up for the day.”
“Whilst the principal motive for moving was to be closer to my father, we have found that we are really enjoying island life – even more than we expected to. It is a very welcoming and friendly place to live and we aren’t sure why we didn’t think about doing it earlier.”
“Guernsey’s low crime rate gives a sense of security which we have never experienced before, that feeling of carefreeness and freedom is incalculable. The lifestyle due to the size of the island and its population also suits us very well, nowhere is very far, everything and everywhere is accessible.”
