If the U.S. sucks, where should one move?Page 5 of 5    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
New Zealand.

A friend of mine moved there last year and periodically, she sends updates and pictures, which are absolutely breathtaking. I plan on visiting her next year, but I understand that it is very challenging to get permanent residence there.

Canada!

It's the people, eh? They're simply more polite and friendly. Some of them even have cute little accents, too.

No matter where you move outside of the United States, your problems follow you.


I don't think that's necessarily the case. It really depends on the person that wants to move. If he feels that he's got legitimate reasons to want to get out, then he might do better somewhere else. However, if he's an incessant whiner, then problems tend to follow that person no matter where he goes.

The economy in my state is rather poor going and people are finding happiness in other states, as well as work, obviously. So for some people, the grass is indeed greener elsewhere. Then you get someone like one of my sisters that's been from state to state and never has her shit together, let alone finding any happiness.

As for myself, yeah I've got family here, but everyone is busy with their own lives so nobody has much time to talk with each other. Am I ready to get out of here? With the right woman for me, I'd say, 'Hell yeah!' but even if I don't find anyone on POF for a while, I still don't see myself staying in this part of the state for the rest of my life. For a smaller city of about 30,000 or so, a lot of people here are jerks and asshats. Not just to me, but to each other as well. Who wants to stick around in a miserable place?

Some of us think the UK sucks too! Close to home I would choose Italy. Ok, no place is perfect but I like the climate, the food and the attitude to life there. Australia would also be a choice. In fact I've looked at New Zealand as well as it is supposed to be a bit easier to get into. Unfortunately I don't have a cat in hells chance of getting into either. I should have married my Aussie boyfriend while I had the chance!

The Netherlands is the Land of the Free, and of bicycles. Korea is proof that, though diversity may be beautiful, so is homogeneity. Egypt has a grand history, but much of it does not directly belong to the land's inhabitants. Italy has a grand history that is a great source of pride for its people, and of course Italy has everything France has plus friendly people. The Philippines is a natural wonder with English-speakers in Asia (that have Spanish names). England of course is England, bless them.

Hi everyone...great discussion!

I have to agree with 'Canada' (being Canadian and all!) BUT this canuck has been in the travel industry for 20 yrs - Mexico, definitely, is my fav place in the world - I lived all over Mexico for about 15yrs mostly but also worked on cruise ships and in the Caribbean but I keep coming back to Mexico - travel is the greatest industry in the world! This website says it all: www.ytbTravelMovie.com

By the way, anyone looking for jobs-on-cruise-ships(.com) can contact me at www.peopleinparadise.com - that's what I do!

Happy travels!

II have spent the last 6 researching for a place to relocate
Posted: 6/26/2007 11:29:42 AM
I have been to some places like London, Amsterda, Tronto, Paris, Mexico and most of the United States.

I began my research when I knew I was going to retire. I wanted a cheaper cost of living than the US, a country with friendly people (especially the women), and a country that welcomed immigration at my age (50).

The best internet free resources are escapefromamerica.com
and
tales from a small planet which have reports from US embassey personnel.

If you are looking for friendly women, Columbia and Brazil are supposed to have the friendliest-espeically Columbia.

Australia is now very difficult to immigtrate to. In the 1960's I heard that if you would immigrate to Australia, they would pay for a one way ticket for you and your family. Might have been true because that is what Mel Gibson's father did.

But Australia is running out of livable landspace. Most of the cities are built along the coast and few can live in the outback.

Amsterdam as well as all of Western Europe is difficult to immigrate to and the exchange rate to the US dollar is very bad.

Perhaps the best place to go right now is Eastern Europe-espeically Prague which is really in central Europe next to Germany (the eastern part).

The Czech Republic is currently advertising that if you want EU citizenship, the the CR is the place to relocate.

I have read mixed reports. About half the people who live there who have immigrated love it and the other half hate it and move on.

Like everything esle, it depends on your circumstances.

Hey civic2004
Would you fill me in on the Czech Republic is currently advertising that if you want EU citizenship, the the CR is the place to relocate. where did you get that information from?
I've lived in Lithuania the last 4 plus years and found in almost impossible to become a resident there even being married to a citizen. I've been to Prague and loved it but did not know about citizenship being possible there. Please IM me with some info. By the way not married anymore but she has her Green Card

Anywhere but the U.S.

Simple solution for a simple problem! Ha ha!

I would personally recommend the Middle East, the U.K., South America or Europe.

I'm over 50 and I would imagine that it would be very challenging to get a permanent residence anywhere outside of my country.

Most of Canadas biggest cities are very close across the border from United Statesian cities. Vancouver B.C., ie. is very similar climate to Seattle, Warshington. Toronto is relatively close to cities such as Detroit and Cleveland, and probably pretty similar climatically!

Canada is okay, it's just too *#)#$ cold in the winter. Perhaps move to a different part of US you have a lot of options from the attitudes of banned in Boston to the more libertarian views of New Orleans, plus you have Hawaii and Puerto Rico as options as well.

As for health care, you're basicly stuck so you might want to consider Australia, Canada, New Zealand or UK for English speaking countries.

I wanna move to Italy. Perhaps one of my driving forces is that I am Italian and would like to try living there because if I dont I will be curious for the rest of my life. I've been there 7 times and not always as a tourist, I speak the language which I think is a must in Italy or you will have a hard time. I have no idea if I will like living there or not, but I can name a number of things that I would like better there than the USA. I really dont like the USA and I hope I dont end up spending the rest of my life here.

Australia is just as bad, unfortunately all the morons over here are looking to you guys for inspiration and copying America. Australia is a cultural desert.

The first thing you need to do is to research where you can be allowed to work.

Bags packed,- Odessa Bound.
Rumor is, you marry a Ukrainian girl, you get citizenship there !
This time the 'mail order' is going the other direction !

Well, with all the respects, this nation was build on roots of Bible principles, and has lead to a lot prosperity and freedom, but now days, most people miss understand the word freedom, to me means be more responsible, and obey the rules of the country, no to do anything I want it even violating some else rights and walk a way like nothing happen, that is absurd and intolerable in any part of the planet, as well as the corruption of any level of the US. government, therefore if anyone disagree, is not obligated to live with the US. standards and policies, they are welcome to exit the nation at any time, I'm sure no body or US. official will hold you against they well!!!.javascript:smilie('')
