I am a British citizen and my husband is South African and we reside in South Africa. We are looking to relocate to Europe, possibly France. Ok let me reword. The figure you mention here is quite reachable for us but does one have to find work within 3 months? We are not "professionals" but have worked all our lives and have experience. Myself in the office admin environment my husband would like to work for himself as handyman kind of thing. He also makes and restores wooden furniture and is a bit of an artist.
