New members of the Seychelles forum, introduce yourself here

Hie Mainga. Im fairly new to seychelles, been here for 4 months. Still trying to catch the ropes. Mind sharing a few pointers.

Hey you lucky people living in paradise!

I grew up in ZImbabwe so I know a bit about differing life-styles, but I have been stuck in London working for some decades now, so I'm eager to make a big change. I'm not wealthy but may be able to afford to live abroad within the next few years. Why not the Seychelles? Looks nice ;)

So I've been looking at a trip down there to visit, sometime before next UK summer. I've done a lot of research already, bought & read books.

I'm a chilled sort of person, musician, DJ, music producer. I've never had a boss, I've always been self-employed & I'm now an internet entrepreneur. It's early days but if the income remains steady I may be able to afford to move away from London at last.

I would love to make friends with either local Seychellois or expats down there. If anyone wants to give me to low down on day-today food costs, cost of rent, fuel etc.

I'm not expecting Victoria to be a cheap place to visit or live in, but I'm hoping it'll be cheaper than London.

Thanks in advance :)

Hey guys,

I'm planning a move from South Africa to Seychelles. Probably mid January 2016. Super excited, wish I could go earlier!

Can anyone help with contacts for accommodation? I already have a job, but it's difficult to find any info on the internet regarding places to stay. A friend of mine is also moving there and we are planning to live together to split the rent (she is moving in December). We're not looking for anything fancy! Basically a place to sleep and shower! Not planning on spending a lot of time indoors! Shared accommodation is also an option! 

Amped to meet everyone!!

See you soon!
