On many occasions, most of us have thought about leaving everything behind and exchanging the stress, speed and hustle and bustle of the city for the calm, tranquility and the environment that a dream village offers us. The reality is that against the general trend of increasingly going to live in the big cities, in recent years there has been a trend to settle in the safety of a village.
Advantages and disadvantages of living in a village
Fundamentally, if you have already lived in a village, or at least have had the opportunity to frequently go to your parents’ or grandparents’ village, you will not find it so hard to adapt to a more rural life. On the contrary, if you are very urban and have grown up all your life in a big city, this 360º change will be somewhat more complicated. If you are completely convinced anyway, read on.
Advantages of living in a village
- Quiet tranquility
- Closeness with your neighbors: You will be part of a community due to fewer people
- Better rest
- Less stress: More comfortable and leisurely life, there is no hustle and bustle and speed of big cities.
- Healthier environment: Less exposure to pollution.
Disadvantages of living in a town
- More isolated
- Internet connection problems: Being in the countryside you will lose connection at times since the networks do not reach you in the same way
- Less leisure: If you move from the city to a smaller town you will lose all that variety of leisure that only exists in big cities.
- Minimal services (hospital, large supermarkets)
- Displacement by car is a must: There are generally fewer public transport routes available.
