Thus the reason my wife and I are only moving an hr from where we are now. And with 30 acres of woods and farm land the grand-kids/kids came come up and visit and play. ? Plus we can go down and visit easy enough.We both fell in love with Sardinia and talked of retiring there. However, with my Mom, 4 siblings, 6 kids, 10 grandkids and 7 great grandkids here in the States; we thought that may not be too practical!
