Have you ever thought of what it would be like to live in another country? Learn the language? Immerse yourself in the history and traditions? Take in new cultures, cuisines, and customs?
I certainly have! I think it’s the avid traveler in me that seeks to visit new places and expand my horizons. We live in such a global marketplace now that the planet has almost become smaller in a way. We can “visit” places virtually via the Internet, but how cool would it be to actually pack up and live in another country for a while for the amazing experience of it?
You could head north to Canada and take in the natural beauty of her cities and parks from Vancouver to Toronto (one of my favorite cities)...
... to Newfoundland and Prince Edward Island.
You could head over the pond to jolly old England and explore the British Isles of Scotland, Wales and Ireland.
What about Paris? Oh, come on...the City of Love...the City of Lights! Everyone wants to go to Paris. It’s the only place in the world where you can eat three squares a day, walk everywhere, and lose weight!
Perhaps Florence is more your style with its old, cobblestone streets and ancient buildings like Uffizi and the Duomo. You could live off wine and gelato!
You could jet on down to Rome – the birthplace of civilization. See the Vatican, the Coliseum, the Forum...etc.
Ever heard of Mauritius? It’s an amazing island in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of Africa and Madagascar. They say the water is crystal clear, like the Caribbean.
And the Orient...wow...think of all you could search and discover there in Singapore, Thailand, Cambodia, Japan...
It’s a big planet and it’s ours to explore!
I think if I had all the money in the world, I would summer in Toronto and winter in Paris, with a villa on the French Riviera (in Villefranche Sur De Mer) and would vacation in a different place every time. If I could just move away...I think I’d want to work in a resort in Antigua...cutting fruit. Doesn’t that sound lovely?
Where would you move if you could?
