Tough choices to make. Maybe Kuaui for me.


We have been to Italy for 2 weeks each in the last 2 years and I felt so at home there. Unfortunately, the limit for US citizens in 90 days at a time, so that is what I am working towards.
Morelia is beautiful isn't it? I've been to perhaps ten states, and Michoacan, Cuernavaca (Morelos), and the two Baja Californias (south of Ensenada) are my favorite parts of Mexico.

I can't decide on a three month pick though. Too many: Northern California, Okinawa, Argentina, Canyon Country in Utah, Portland, central Italy. . .
I'd spend 60% of the time in France, with much of it in Provence, the Rhone, Burgundy, and the Loire, with lesser time in Bordeaux, Champagne, and Paris. I'd spend 25% of the time in Spain, mostly in Barcelona, Priorat, the south, Madrid, and San Sebastian with lesser time in the Tempranillo producing areas. I'd spend the remaining 15% of the time travelling through Italy.
Well, it seems to me that you have 2 different options:

Option 1 is to "drop out" for 3 months, and that means maybe someplace tropical and unhurried - like an island in the Caribbean, Hawaii, Bora Bora, etc... Or other quiet places.

Option 2 is to experience an exciting city in a more in-depth way than you might get from a one-week visit - Rome, London, New York, Buenos Aires, etc...

I guess Option 3 might be to experience a region: such as the South of France, Northern Italy, the Rockies, etc...

What does one need to do to move to Spain or Italy FULL TIME? Would like to do that soon.

You should be ok with Scotland then. Big Grin


We spent part of a summer traveling through Scotland. Out in the most rural areas of the Highlands, it almost sounded like they were speaking Hebrew. We got along fine though and could understand virtually everyting. Just don't ask for ice in your single malt!

A passport from a EU nation, which I'm working on getting.
Just about any place works for me. You've basically stumbled on my retirement plans. My house will be paid for long before I retire. My goal once I do is to rent a condo or apartment for 3 months in a different place each year. First year is already selected to be Kauai to force myself to relax and learn how to retire. The second year will likely be Italy or Spain. Then another ocean destination after that like the Seychelles. Then likely another country in Europe again. Continue on.

When I was in Park City in Feb., I rode the lifts with someone at Park City Mountain that was doing precisely this although more long term. They were doing 3 month blasts but not returning to Texas for any period of time other than to pick up stuff/prepare for their next adventure.

I'd do 1 month of each of these

Bman- don't you do this professionally now, except that it's 3 years at a time?

Indeed. Paid and supported by the people of Canada Wink


Not Venice, sadly. Frown, but if we ever open a consulate in Venice I'm first in line. It's the coolest place on earth.

London? Guilty as charged.....
