    Probably if the right kind of opportunity came up. However very few countries come to mind that I would want to move too.

    I could not imagine moving states, let alone moving countries! People have brought up to me maybe moving somewhere for study, and I did think about it for a while. In general though, I'd just be miserable if I was asked to pack my bags and move to Melbourne tomorrow. Unless Australia has a super-serious crises, unless it costs hella low to settle into Toronto - I would not be ready to go that far.

    I am planning on moving overseas this Summer for work (if everything works out accordingly - we all know what I mean lol). No place is perfect, but I have been in one spot my entire life. I am getting older and I don't want to be that "I wish I would have" person. I just hope our current predicament doesn't stand in my way <3

    Depending upon the reason (job, partner, etc.) and if financially possible, yes.

    Yes. I have been trying to leave this usa for two years and I can't. It seems like everyday the UK government gets harder for someone like me to move there. Everytime I go on zoopla website to get a flat to rent. It seems like a issue then too. (What is a pcm and why are there two prices just to rent a flat). I looked on youtube and I am still confused.

    I went to an interview and filled a form. One of the questions was if I want to emigrate or not. Seems like one of the major concerns of the employers is hiring someone who is not to emigrate after getting good enough. Understandable, as everyone eagers to leave this country.

    PCM is per calendar month.

    There’s normally a per week equivalent too, which is smaller but it’s the same overall cost just given per week rather than per month.

    £900 pcm
    £208 pw

    They are both the same (about 10,800 per year). It’s just so you can see whether it’s affordable. You would most likely have to pay per month because that’s just how it’s usually done.

    So, the rent is 10,800 per year (which is what you pay) and they show you what that is per month and per week.

    I have no idea about the value in USD. Use an online currency converter.

    Definitely disappointed in the direction the USA is going but I believe that change is best made from within so I don't think I would ever leave permanently. With that said, we have talked about spending a year or so in Italy because, well, it's Italy!

    If the right opportunity came up, probably. I lived in Japan for 4 months a few years back and would absolutely love to live there once again. There are certain things the country didn't do as well as the US but I loved just about every day I was there.

    I am half English half Scottish. I left England to permanently live in Scotland. I wouldn’t care if I never saw England again. I’m home in Scotland :slight_smile:

    If it was easy, I might. But everyone I have ever met is here, and everything I've ever learned is only helpful here. If I left the usa, or my state, I would feel so lost. Also, I like my weather and I think other places have it so bad...
