Hi there.


Gals and lads, have you ever coinsider to live in other country?.

In recent times I've been playing with the idea of leaving México and move abroad.


I have nothing decided nor arranged so far but I have been thinking on some cities that I consider are fairly appealing IMO

Some of them are:

1.- San Diego California.

2.- Vancouver BC.

3.- Albuquerque NM.

5.- Quebec.

So what do you guys think about those options?.


Im not intereste in big cities because, I have lived all my life in one, life in Mexico city is to hard, I work a lot, have a little time for me and my family and dont make big money.

Traffic jams are a monumental pain in the arse.


So forummites what would be your options if you decided to move yo another country different to yours?.


Cheers.

Yes I have and there are only two reasons why I could do that:
1. I fall in love
2. I find a super cool job, that I love ect, but I have thought about working abroad only if the job is connected with Latvia, so I guess I could move only for love...

About 13 years ago I looked into moving to Australia. It was pretty much impossible since I wasn't a doctor or engineer or something of that nature.

San Diego is nice. I lived there from the time I was 6 months old until I was 5 and my little sister was born there. My family had actually lived there for years before relocating back to Ohio during my mothers pregnancy. All I remember is that it had nice beaches.

I do not like big cities because of jams and (other things like this) too!))
But I will have to live in them, cause I want to be a scientist. I will live there I will have a chance to have more interesting scientific job.
and I prefer to live near my parents cause they need me.
If I did not want to be a scientist, I'd prefer to move from place to place all over the world :D Or to live in the best city in the world - Vyborg :thumbsup:

Might like the States, English speaking, wealthy, fairly conservative (when compared to most of Western Europe), guns galore, fast food, proper freedom of speech, wide open roads etc :thumbsup: Then again, there are downsides to everything.

Other than that, I might have moved to RSA under the old system but not now; hot, cheapish by English standards, good standard of living for Whites, there was a reasonably low crime rate in White areas under Apartheid etc

Never been attracted, massively, to Australia or NZ.

UAE, or even Saudi, would be nice. I'm not a woman and I don't really drink alcohol (put it this way, I could easily live without alcohol for the rest of my life if it meant having a well-paid job and good lifestyle in Saudi Arabia).

Might move to Spain, could come back to England easily.

Yes San Diego sounds like an excellent place moreover it is within walking distance from Tijuana...you know....the polleros just smuggle you the other side of the border and nothing more and I wouldnt like to walk for too long in the desert...:whoco: :lol::lol:

well i lived in NL and currently in Britain, Germany seems fine but it kinda reminds me to much to NL not that there is something wrong with it.

so it is a toss between France or Canada

To be honest, I've been raised Canada and the US my entire life. Specifically, the province of Ontario and state of California. I can't imagine living outside of the western world but I've always thought about living in London, England or perhaps a city like Frankfurt, Germany or Brussels, Belgium if I was in the country for business.

Other places that interest me are Singapore, Malaysia, Netherlands or France. However, I prefer English speaking cities or cities with at least 25% of the city able to communicate in English. So, India is an option but I prefer it to be more developed and less corrupt before thinking about actually living there.

That is funny, we have a similar story. I lived in San Diego when I was little ( 3-9 years old) My younger brother was born there.

Also, I was going to move to Australia, I bought the plane ticket and everything. My bestfriend is from there and she was moving back and invited me to live with her. There was some drama last minute and I did not go. Kind of a bummer but it was meant to be, i suppose.

Just because I want my daughter to grow up in a more "town/village" environment. Be able to play out till late, have a lot more nature around her, be beside the sea....*you get the picture*

She can always come to London later if she gets bored :P

Germany (west germany due to affinity): There is something that attracts me to Germany, an efficiency, I kinda like the language though i might find the country dull after a while. But I feel that this is the only country in Europe that haven't turned crap.

England: I never been to England and especially London, but the people are kinda friendly as far as I know, and I speak the language.

Paris: I know that living in Paris is an hell, but the northern/eastern part of Paris attracts me due to it being more "low key".

US: I'd live in some creepy remote town somewhere in the midwest where some yokel in a lone cabin will spit at my feet and tell me not to go in a forest up there. I expect zombies. I hope Hollywood didn't lie to me.

san diego is probably a good option. its close to mexico so if you ever get homesick you can go back more easily than in canada. actually if you lived in SD it would probably be alot like mexico haha. go to LA or something and live out in the suburbs. close to the city but far enough away from all the crime and horrible traffic. plus LA has all types of different cultural influences that you can experience because everyone flocks there.

No homesick for me mate..... I would only miss the Mexican beaches and maybe some two or three good spots at Mexico City that would bring me some nice memories.

The wind seems to blow there a lot. There's a mountain nearby. Some defense contractors are there. Greg Jackson's MMA camp is there.

My mom busted my dad for dating a stripper there.

you could live in the country then, its quieter but chances are you'll miss the city life. in the city everything is nearby, in the country you have to travel to go places, or to get things from the store. my grandma has to drive like 30 minutes to just go to the store.. but on the flipside she doesn't have to lock her doors at night or keep a loaded pistol by here bed haha. so there are pluses and minuses.

Saw a documentary about a Mexican-American gang in New Mexico that is based there.

Www.FBI.gov has crime stats for metro areas, which you could measure against areas of the US you are more familiar with.

Have met a couple of young professionals who relocated from there. White guy, Asian woman. They had been working for defense contractors, so would need security clearance which is easier to get if you're a US citizen.

They have an old established culture of anglicized former Mexicans from Spanish colonial times. Rancher type of people. Probably a lot of cultural overlap with west TX and northern Mexico. It would probably serve you well being multilingual there.

Small business opportunities would probably be there as with anywhere that isn't economically depressed. Depending on whether you were going to be a professional consultant in your field, or open a retail business or restaurant etc. obviously you would need to look at the specific area and local demand for products or services you would offer.

I've thought about moving to New Zealand, I have friends there and it's good land for farming...but the weather has been extreme for some years now so I've changed my mind about moving there, I was serious about it 6 years ago.

I have a friend who is local but is from Jamaica who keeps telling me how much I would love living and farming in Jamaica. It sounds nice. Then I fantasize about living in Norway,Sweden,Finland,and southern Germany:) to experience the glorious woods. I think I need to travel :)

Always, though have never very seriously considered it. As much as I love my country and feel I will probably only ever truly belong here, I definitly have thought of living abroad in England, Scotland, the East Coast cities of America, Vancouver Canada, Singapore, Turkey, Israel. Guess its kind of an irony for me, that many are desperately eager to move to my country, while I can understand very well why.

Well, I would rather live in a small town that is about an hour away from a big city "max" .. there are a lot of "new" villages set up in Turkey, inhabited by cool students and hippy peoples from Turkey, intertwined with "foreigners living permanently in Turkey", so it would suit me fine.

Yes, North America once I graduate. Japan if I have time.


In a more distant future, coming back to Italy and also my ancestors' homeland are two serious possibilities.

I just checked a few things with my uni today... The big step will be in summer 2014. I'll begin with Canada and then the US. :)

I was thinking about Australia or New Zealand, but leaning more to Australia due to its more robust economy

I am again seriously thinking of selling my property, buying rentals and moving to New Zealand to the northern part of South Island in a small community because I am sick of the mentality here in the US and because I want to live where it is very beautiful and nice weather :) I have friends there who tell me I would love it. I need to visit there, I have a good feeling about it.
Living on the ring of fire is a little worrisome, but I am used to earthquakes since i lived in southern ca. I don't know but I am having fun entertaining the thought and researching New Zealand all over again, it's been 6 years since I last thought about it like this.

I think I will fit in well there.

If you have a laid back attitude and love spending time out in the wild, it's great.

I need to test the waters before I decide to move anywhere. But yes i've considered it of course. Greece seemed paradisaical, though not with their current economic conditions. So do Italy, Spain, Portugal...But I could live with being where i'm at now and taking a good 14 day long trip abroad a year and/or studying abroad, too. It is one of my goals to start traveling more (I've exhausted all of the US...)

I'll have my chance to test out Portugal hopefully by the Spring/Summer of next year. My roommate's friend(Lives in Portugal) and I will be trading places. I'll have a free place to crash so i'll only have to worry about getting my airplane ticket:thumbsup:. Sweet deal. I can see if Portugal is one of my dream cities.

Sure, I'm rather tired of the US. I've been here my whole life and I would like to experience somewhere different.

It just seems near impossible to move anywhere decent that I would be interested in. New Zealand and Australia are very difficult to move to and Europe is impossible.

Yes, I think it's the place for me.
I read a blog by a man from London who moved to the same community in NZ that I am considering. He said everyday was heaven but he quickly became bored with perfection and missed the rat race back in London, he missed his office job and traffic even.... weirdo ;) I kind of understand what he must of been feeling, moving from the city to the rural countryside myself I know there is about a year to 2 years of a transition one experiences and a lot of thoughts and feelings flood you... but now I could never go back to the rat race/city life. I love living close with nature away from the crowds.

Sometimes I have thought of being a tramp, asking for money in some supermarket's doorway, in the rural Basque Country.

I love anglosaxon countries but they are so far away...

Aaah, that's a good question. I have a few locations in mind, but it really depends on a few very important things that I don't know the answer to just yet, like my job. I'm hoping and praying I find some certainty, but it's not easy.

I lived abroad for 10 years, and although it was not a negative experience I don´t think I´d consider another long-term move. I do want to travel however, and would not be averse to spending up to 6 months or maybe even a year travelling in Europe.

Would love to live in Mexico DF and a few other capital cities in South America. Also, Spain, and Poland has growing appeal to me. Pretty girls, good food, walkable streets/good logistics, great architecture, nightlife, major airport hubs, are the things I love that have me curious to these places.

I was going to move to Portugal around 2007 with my family, but things didn't work out. Moving to Canada would be amazing, I have a degree, but I'm not sure if it's worth anything there.

Yes I have and there are only two reasons why I could do that:
1. I fall in love
2. I find a super cool job, that I love ect, but I have thought about working abroad only if the job is connected with Latvia, so I guess I could move only for love...


Yep! Fell in love and moved 2 years ago! Quit my job and left the country I was born and grew up in.

Sweden is not Malmö or Rinkeby, just like USA is not Detroit or Compton. Also, USA is just about 65 percent white, nowhere in Europe is the situation that bad. You seem to be fearful.

Anyone in his right mind would be fearful or angry right now, given the situation in both Western European countries and the US.

The United States at one point was like 85% white European. You're right about specific areas in Sweden being really terrible but not the entire country however if the asinine current immigration laws remain into the future Sweden eventually will be discussing its own 65% white population. The United States opened its borders in 1965 where we have a head start on Europe, Canada, and Australia.

In an ideal world the rest of the west would learn from the American experiment of failure as a warning to not repeat but tragically the rest of the west seems bent on following precisely in our footsteps in relation to immigration.

Fearful? No, I just know when to avoid trouble and not get myself entrapped in bothersome situations. I would hardly call that fearful but instead just call it prudent planning.

Agree. Sweden and Denmark are planning to bring in soldiers to ease the burden of the police in Malmö and Copenhagen. I'd say it is a better task for European armies than awaiting for some imaginary Russian invasion.

It was actually much higher than that during the first 70-80 years of the Colonies.

I say that specific number loosely given native Americans and enslaved Africans, of course African slaves probably came much later.
