Are you ready to leave your country forever?

post #1 of 133
Thread Starter 
I'm from Russia and I may say it's not a country that can give you wide view on the world. Due to our soviet period of history a lot of people still don't go out of the country or leave the country just for holidays once or twice a year. Very small amount of russians go to other countries for study or work as it is usual for europeans and americans. Though I think most of students go back home after finishing their universities in other countries.

I'm also thinking now about moving to another country... may be not forever, but anyway I have no plans to come back to Russia after. I'm kind of open minded person, but still think it won't be easy to get used.

What about you? Do you live in your original country now? If not, why have you moved from there and how long will stay away? What difficulties have you met while getting used to your new place in the world? Are you ready to leave your original country forever? Which country would you prefer for this?

Forever, not sure. For a good long while, hell yes. Time to get the fuck out of Dodge.

I might at some point. Depends on how America weathers the next few decades. Australia or Latin America would probably be where I'd wind up.

Same here. Lucky I got family in two countries down there, and I speak the language. Long way from retiring age though, and who knows what the fuck is going to happen here. We'll see.

there was a time when i wanted this. the opportunity never really presented itself obviously, however, and i didn't pursue it with the vigor needed to make it happen. i suppose i do regret slightly not having had that time, but i always would have wanted to return home. today, i am quite happy where i am.

I've got family in Chile, but would never want live to where they are. I speak Spanish reasonably well and will likely wind up marrying a Latina, so I'd probably aim for Costa Rica or Argentina. Warm weather's a big plus for me.

I have three nationalities and would never give any of them up. I grew-up in Australia and moved (fairly permanently) to the US a few years ago for family reasons.

The only snag I see is really old age. Wouldn't want to be a burden to my families, and not sure how foreign countries treat the elderly tourist who can't take care of themselves anymore. I wouldn't want to return home just to go to a damn convalescent home.

Gotta seriously think ahead for this too work. No way do I want to retire in America.

I dont know if one is qualified to answer this question until they've lived in another country for at least a few years. I think it takes a while to notice the really annoying things about living in a certain place. I'm young, and I have plans that might result in me permanently moving to Holland, so we'll see I guess. I've lived in Sweden all my life, and I can easily list many things I love about this country, but there are almost an equal amount of reasons to leave.

My parents did this, moving from India after they graduated from med school/grad school & got married. I've been born & raised in the US of A, and I couldn't see myself moving away from my parents & my friends forever... However, I've always had a plan to buy a residence in either Italy or Switzerland after schooling and such are done. But not necessarily to move there forever.
