Knowing the area where you are going to live will ensure you settle in quickly.
When moving from another area or even country getting to know your new surroundings
makes life much easier.
Simple things such as where the nearest supermarket is and where the local markets
are held will take the stress out of your move.
Knowing where your local doctor, dentist and hospital is essential as you really
do not want to try to find out where they are when you really need them.
While the Internet is a great source of information, maps, directions and journey
times unfortunately this information is based on average speed limits and road types.
In reality the journey times do not take into account traffic, school times and
other possible factors. There is no substitute for driving the 10 miles to and from
work to let you know exactly how long the journey takes.
