3. The country is a great place to raise kids
Raising a family in the bush can give your kids extra freedom.
4. Community feel
The bush lifestyle can offer the experience of belonging to a community that some may find absent in the urban environment. People who move to a country town tend to be gregarious and fit in easily.
5. Best of both worlds
Living in the bush and working in the city means you’ll have all the benefits of slower-paced living, yet you won’t lose touch with city contacts, attractions and conveniences. It’s a win-win option.
6. Travel time can be free time
If you take the train into the city conscientious types can use the time to catch up on work while others may choose to escape the commute with music, podcasts or a good book. Even if you drive, you can still relax with the radio, by playing the songs you’re embarrassed to love, by listening to an audio book, or even learning a new language.
