Thanks! Maybe we could host visitors if we renovated the little cottage authentically. It's not a tourist area, but people who are not familiar with China could get a ride from Shanghai airport, spend a couple of days chopping down bamboo and stir frying stuff, then hop on a train to Nanjing and beyond.
Sounds like a wonderful idea!

Sounds like an excellent excuse. :D

It certainly feels more worthwhile putting effort and money into a place if it's yours long-term.

How does it work moving away from a city, will you lose access to city hospitals as a result? (I know it can be an issue for people moving *to* cities.)
The structure of things like health insurance is obviously very different to the UK. There's a mix of public subsidy and private insurance. The better hospitals are in the bigger cities. The great thing about the location of this house is that it's close to a pretty big city, and while it's not a commuter village in the British sense, it can work as one, and facilities are available.
Living this lifestyle can be great, but I'd really love to have our own place, and the thought of being able to fully decorate it how we want is exciting!

Really seems like a perfect solution for you two then! :) Whatever you decide on I hope it works out well for you.
