Yacht Broker - Boats,
Barges, Ships & Yachts From Around The World - We know there
are a lot of expats living on barges in Europe, and an even greater number

international basis. It's in keeping with the thrust of our website; international
lifestyles, international living, unique lifestyles, living overseas.
What could be better than living on a barge in France? The only thing
I can think of is living on a yacht in the Caribbean. ...or how about
Brazil? ...or Tahiti? If you don't want to live on your yacht, but
just park it in front of your house, we suggest you visit our new Caribbean
Real Estate website and buy yourself a waterfront house in the Dutch Antilles.
To Expect When Buying Real Estate In Kiev ~ The
City Of Kiev ~ By Jason Jones - Kiev was the original capital of Russia
but after the Mongol invasions of the 13th century the power of the city

to some of its former glory. If you are interested in buying real estate
or a home there is a wide selection to chose from and the above article
will give you some ideas about what you should look out for when buying
property in Kiev. You should also remember that there are some beautiful
towns that sit on the edge of the Black Sea in the Crimea: these are but
a short trip from Kiev and might be a nice spot to buy a summer home to
compliment your home in Kiev.
