If you go out of our Country , you'll soon see why most of us come back and wouldn't think of leaving.

I live on Vancouver Island and we have seen exactly 1/2 day of snow. Vancouver had a tough winter had 3 days of 1/2 inch of snow. The winters are mild and the summers never extreme. I love travelling around the US and Canada and wouldn't live anywhere else.

Been there, done that, and came back...

granted, we did come back to a different place,
but still best there is at the moment for those of us without unlimited funds


hopefully, something will change the trend, this time in the correct trajectory !

How many countries are as large and as diverse as the US? What may be easy to implement in a small country is a huge undertaking in the US. I think I will stay here.

Funny thing about American ExPats is that they very often move to areas where there is an American "colony" like seen currently in Costa Rica and Belize.

It's human nature for "birds of a feather to flock together" and these places (where ExPats go) usually have great weather, stable gov'ts, and low cost of living.

I traveled extensively with the military and can say from experience...there's no place like home.

Safe travels

That may be true but, for me it's the climate and scuba diving ... that's why I currently live on the east coast of Florida ... I avoid "colonies" and I'm a bit of a recluse ... although I do like a stable government ... and cold beer, salsa, guac, and tostitos

I'll never leave...but since we are just talking here...I'd go some place warm all year with limited taxes. Costa Rico comes to mind, I know a couple if other GIs that have retired there.

Until recently, I never would have given much thought to moving to another country. Lately I have been rethinking that mindset. As our country continues to seek the same levels as third world countries I have considered that, if I absolutely had to leave my country I would look at new Zealand. Good fishing, same language, moderately socialist, good, varied climate. I hope I don't have to leave though.

Thank you for your service.

Others have thanked me for mine.

The OP's question is not unreasonable ... it's a big world ... folk's "break into" Canada all the time. Folk's overstay their welcome in lot's of countries.

To stay on topic ... if I was permitted, I would also consider Bermuda. Nassau, Bimini, the Virgin Islands (U.S. and British) are high on my list. Dominica and Barbados are lovely. And I really like Key West ... by some people's standards it's not in the U.S.
