    No problem at all, it's Slovakia.

    I truly believe that tourism is going to take off in north Slovakia over the next 10 years.

    Great hiking, superb skiing, €1 half litre beers etc etc.

    We'll be buying in Slovak Paradise (Slovensky Raj) which is stunning.

    Hiya Roy,

    Yes, in my wife's homeland.

    We have mom & dad there along with a huge family. Luckily, dad is a plumber / handyman/ ex policeman who knows everybody and is very good at building etc.

    The house would be for our & family use only, and her mom & dad have already agreed to look after it.

    Plan is to buy close to the national park, so family can use as a hiking base or weekend getaway.

    £50K should buy a decent 3 bed with land, probably need work but we have that covered.

    Just need to crunch the numbers and start saving!!!!

    £ being weak against the euro doesn't help matters [emoji1]

    Yes, I have been paying into mine for 23 years now.
    Since I have more expendable money lately, I have been increasing my contribution by 1% each year and am now at 5% with a 2% employer contribution.
    I'll continue increasing until I'm at 8% which will be 3 years.
    I believe in 2019, my employer will be required to increase to 3%, giving me an 11% overall contribution plus government money.
    We are also currently costing up buying a property in Eastern Europe to diversify.
    And my metals will just sit there too now, I'm unlikely to add to them unless there is a significant downturn in price.

    I have for sale the 1 oz Pandas from the first bullion year up to 1997. All coins are bought from reliable sellers and checked for authenticity (weight, diameter etc.). They are sold as bullion condition, so please check detailed photos to make your own assessment.
    Price is 55€ per item plus postage cost from Ireland. I will post them only in the forum for the weekend and additional sites on Monday.

    Hey buddy, good to speak to you again. 
    No buddy, I actually bought it on eBay - went to see it and did a deal with him. He had it from there though. It’s a great van, biggest enjoyment is the wet heating 😄
    Just set up, and now sat with a beer while the little one is on the play area. 
    Hopefully our paths cross one day 👍
    When is the first outing then pal?

    I agree that the listing wasn't described correctly when referring to spot price.

    The OP has stated the coin is priced less than spot. This is not true. 
    If somebody was to buy on this basis, it would not be fair.
