Subject: Vacation homes
Hi Ziners, We all dream about buying an out-of-town/country home (we'll rent it when we're not there and pay off the mortgage - sure) and some Ziners have done it.

Well, we've moved on to the first step...we've chosen France and likely somewhere in the area of Antibes/Nice. We have some familial attachment to the country and we speak the language so that's two hurdles we've jumped.

I'd be interested in hearing from Ziners who have taken the plunge and about the barriers, hurdles and challenges to buying property out of your home town or country. I'd also be interested in knowing how much time Ziners may spend in their "home away from home". Lucy, Toronto
