    Ok REALLY important,,, need help on where to move for 4-8months

    Ok I have decided to start school back in either the summer terms, or the fall term.. so that gives me 4 moths, or like 8 months..


    I have about 30k in a life insurance thign from my mother, and I want the get the hell out of this town NOW. I would like to decide on something soon, but I want it to be thought out.

    MY QUESTION IS: If you could move somewhere for a lil while (unless I like it so much, and could afford to live there and stay...). Where would you go, anywhere in the world, prefereable warm, and MAYBE a beach (but not a must). It could even be in the US.

    Please help me out, I am very serious about this,, It would be a big choice in my life.


    Right now, I have a few places in mind. I was thiknking Ireland, and maybe trying to be a pub tender or soemthing like that, travel around. Tibet, and see the culture and enviroment. or the south part of france, for no known reason.

    I AM NOT GOING TO MOVE SOMEWHERE BECAUSE SO AND SO SAYS SO.

    I am simple looking for any ideas, and reasons why.

    If anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it!


    Peace
    Alex

    Darn bro... if you got a bit of money and are carefull with it hop on the next plane to Australia and find yourself a nice spot near a beach!

    From there you are close to most of the Asian countries so you can go visit.

    That would be my choice.

    Well, other than a plane ticket I am sure you would be ok for 6-8 months in oz with less than a few thousands... you're not expecting the RITZ or the Hilton I hope... hostels and cheapo appartments all the way.

    Also a cool thing about that place is that you can get a working-holidays student visa. That means you're allowed to get jobs to make living money while on your trip.

    I guess it all depends on what your expectations are. Personally I've always travelled on the cheap. If you want a "big change" thats not too big (ie different culture but same language) that part of the world would get my vote.

    Youth hostels are something to look at too .... cheap place to stay and they are all over Europe. Remember some countries require visas and work permits. To get a work permit might require sponsorship. Just make sure you do your research before you go.

    Good luck and have fun.

    lol, its been between 40-50 degrees after about 4PM for a couple months or so, and yesterday was the first day in a week without rain. Its unusual though. Its expensive to live here, overpopulated, and traffic is a bitch. I still dont think Id rather live anywhere else tho. The summers at the beach make up for it all.
