Hey all, As many of you know I currently reside in the good ole US of A. However I think it is time for a change and in a few years hope to be on my way out and off to Europe somewhere. Is there any countries that are a "must" to live in? Right now I am leaning twords Italy. What is the country like? Is the weather nice? I have heard only good things about it from my good freind who grew up there. Any advice would be great.

I lived 2 and a half years in Italy before moving on to Canada, Elbonia and now Ireland. It's a great country, sunny weather, friendly locals and an easy-going atmosphere. Even if you don't speak a word of Italian (which was my case when I got there), you'll get a warm welcome. The country is very varied scenery-wise, with the sea, lakes, mountains and isles. I was in Perugia, Umbria, halfway between beautiful Tuscany (Florence) and Latium (Rome), which is a beautiful historical city founded by the Etruscans. the climate is much milder than the north of europe, not so scorching in summer nad not so cold in winter. North Italy is somewhat different, more industrial than the center and the south and more fog, drizzle and cold winters.
Culturally, what can I say ? home of the renaissance and more museums, art galleries, theaters, basilicas, etc... than you can imagine. And let's not forget their great car culture  Laugh out loud
Now for THE big drawback : the job market is, er, somewhat in a real mess.
Don't know in your field...but in mine (IT), it's somrthing short of a disaster.
Anyways, if you choose to go there, I'm sure you'll have a good time !

Do you have a plan to support yourself? Unfortunately, you just can't get a job in another country without jumping through all sorts of hoops.

Although, I too, a 39-year old, am considering doing the same thing and Italy (where from my ancestors immigrated) is my first choice.

I know this isn't in Europe... but I'd consider the United Arab Emirates!

I plan on being in Italy in 5 years (if all goes well). i am currently starting to learn Italian by reading books and c.d. language lessons. Is italian hard to learn and speak? Thanks and I am thinking of going in the Rome area and south, perhaps Naples. Anything along the coast.

This must be a parody thread.

But if you're serious., UPS, then practice standing on the footprints over an open hole. Especially if you plan to live/travel in southern Italy.  Wink/being sarcastic

Up, up and away!

You should come to Glasgow its a great place to stay. It is currently in the middle of being redeveloped and restored to its former glory with no less than 6 or 7 maybe more massive regeneration projects bring 1000's of new jobs to Glasgow its the place to be coming to.

To put the scale of this in context the new financial district next to the river Clyde is being quoted as the new canary wharf with major financial house's like Philip Morris atrackted to the area as over heads a estimated to be 50 000 GBP less per person ( told buy a friend who works for them) than in London. Has also been described as the new Berlin in the way that massive rebuilding in Berlin happened in the 1990's. Its the place to come to good times are coming and history shows when Glasgow booms it really booms.

Also the best scenery in the UK is less than an hour away. It really is a great place to be I recommend it to anyone.
