oh..a good question from you, my friend Laurika. At least it reminisce me on my previous living places. I had it two times but for both of it still in Kuala Lumpur area. Finally I purchased one unit terrace house, using my employer's loan facility. You're right say, Laurika. The worst part on moving our living place is packaging stuffs and tasks. A tiring works to be done at both points, previous and new place. Huh!!! very tire of. So for your next moving, where it going to be? remain in States or Europe? If I am your present neighbor, of course I will miss you so much. Thanks for sharing, my friend Laurika.

LOL!!! but I firmly believe that they will miss you, you know when?. After you left that house, they got new 'king kong' type of neighbor. And they started thinking at that time better to have you rather than 'king kong'. How they will miss you....LOL!!! Anyway thanks for your sincere remarkable BR to my poor texts, and peace be upon you for now and forever.

Oh yes, we are looking to move out into the suburbs to a quieter location as we are now just 10 minutes walk away from the busy city. Every day we can hear the sound of ambulance and police sirens and quite often the noise of a police helicopter hovering overhead checking up on something or other. It would be nice to hear nothing but silence at night time, but for a while, the silence would probably keep me awake! LOL.

Hoah! You moved quite a distance in there laurika. How is it? Don't you have many stuffs with you? Me? I moved in like 4times in different places in one country for 2 years and twice in another country. Currently I have plans of moving again.My worries are, I have bought some stuffs with me that are quite difficult to move around like my speakers and a sofa..some books that are heavy.. I really find it hard to move out. And you are right, packing and unpacking is the worst part of it all.

How is it?pretty hard if you are worried how the plasma tv is gonna come to usa on the ship.Also I have some books, there were heavy, but nothing can happen with them ,at least.but I cannot imagine, if I will go back to europe we want to get funished apartman,so we will not need ship the stuff there and back.But still every year I am buy so many books and it is expensive to ship them.I think i might use library again and not buying book.Where are you moving?Far away?

Yuo are right..That's why while I'm in another country, i don't get to buy so many stuffs like plasma..I only carry my laptop with me since on my laptop, I can watch videos, play songs..While I was in Manila, I bought so many hardbound books like you did. It pains me to leave them them while I'm here in Singapore. Wish I could carry them wherever i go. Lately, because of this I have decided not to buy any hardbound books anymore..I prefer ebooks. Currently , I am working here in Singapore. In the near future , I plan to move in Chicago.

I moved too many times, but I always stayed in city of Szeged. My last moving was in december of 2005. Then I decided it was the last one. I would like to own a stabile home. It is very important for me. So in the city it was the last one. I would move again only if I received a very good offer from far away even from another country. I was also thinking and keep thinking on moving to another country, but I would try it only if I am sure, that is better. Do not think that I am fully satisfied with my life. I only fear from the bigger unsecurity. My borther lives in UK, and he often said to me to move there, but I feel myself too old to go for the luck. I have a seven yrs old son, I may not play for the fortune. I would go only if I know everything about the other life I should live there, (but first of all my son should live there.)

Okay, let me see now. I was two years old when we left New Guinea and we moved to Holland. In Holland we moved twice, but I don't remember. From Holland we went to Australia where we moved five times. Finally from Australia we migrated to the United State. Oh boy, here I have lived in Seattle, to LA area, back to Seattle area, to Hacienda Heights, back to LA area and finally to the desert of Southern California. How many is that? LOL. I'm sure I'm not settled yet.

Last year I changed three firms. It seems to be difficult to find a satisfactory job. And now i just want to look for a new one again. But no matter how i change, i still move in the same city. I have never got an experience of moving transnationally.

I have moved my times in my lifetime. My furthest move was last year, when I moved a little over an hour away from my home area. It was a good move, but I miss everyone.

for the frist 5 years that I was married we moved about every 3 ti 6 months. My husband worked on a lot of farms and ranches. either they did'nt like his work or he didn't like working for them. He soon started working for a meat packing plant and we moved twice when I devoriced him. since then I have moved 3 times while on disability. Ithen came to live with my son in the military to care for his children and we moved 8 times since 1990and are expecting at least one more move next spring. Boy I have moved more than I though I had.

Hi Laurika. My family used to move here and there before everything is stable down. Let me count, I guess I was moving for fours times as well but still within the same state, nothing too far as I live in a small island. Haha. I don't think my family is going to move before I actually graduate from my Degree. However, I know here is not our final destination. Haha.

I used to move around alot when I was younger. I loved the change. As I get older i find i am more settled and am content to stay in one place. I will be moving again as i am looking for a smaller place but i have been here for 9 years now which is a very long time for me. Alas...no long distance moving.
