Moving to Victoria Falls?
by John Maurice Field
Hi Tony & Boo and many thanks for this web site. I have just subscribed to your Bush Subscription. I'll try and keep this brief, my wife Melissa is from Harare, I am English. This December is our 10th wedding anniversary and despite a large age difference we have 2 wonderful boys, 5 & 7. My wife has just returned from VF. I retired from the Space Agency 10 years ago (early I still do Ironman races,) and we moved to a beautiful part of Austria to provide the boys and ourselves a great lifestyle. I am now considering a permanent move to VF despite the Zim situation for which I have heartfelt pain. My biggest concern would be the boys education ( they are fluent in English and German), my wife has an Aunt on the ground who like yourselves has built a good life in the tourism industry so we would not be totally without advice and support. I just read a blog on your site where you mentioned to a similar couple who don't have kids "that's another matter". I would be very grateful for any advice and will be following your site closely.
Kind regards and well done for realising your dreams! John
