Most are around the Caribbean Sea, Belize, the Bahamas, Honduras, the Virgin Islands. Some further away like SE Asia, Islands in the Indian Ocean....etc., etc......
My question is where would you want to live and why?
Anywere warm really - Dont need a beach but a pool would be good. I would actually love staying at a holiday resort - Nightlife, drink, heat, sun, pool, bar, drink, alcohol, heat + more alcohol, loud music, ladies, women, drink, loud music, pool...
This time next year - I'll be having a laugh in spain living it up..
Canada also sounds great, but I think there is also greencard issues.
Which is a shame, as the sentiment behind the title to this thread is spot on. As a webmaster, you really can live anywhere there's decent internet access and a power supply for your laptop.
But there are other things to consider as well as geography, expenses and being able to work online.
Warm weather and a predictable climate
Fairly good beaches
Huge variety of climate and landscape in a smallish country
Much lower cost of living
More of my family
Britain (especially London) has:
Better/more bookshops, museums, art galleries, theatres, music, restaurants and bars
Better and a greater variety of beer, wine and food available
Cool weather (nice when you want to go for a walk)
Better infrastructure (internet, roads, railways)
Huge cultural variety in cities (especially London)
Almost all my friends
It all depends on what you like to do. Go swimming or go for a walk? Go out for a reasonably good meal cheap or splash out for an expensive one?
Its all personal, but I would give people who are thinking of moving countries a few warnings:
You do not know what its really like to live there till you try it. Do not burn your boats.
Moving can be very traumatic for children, they cannot rationalise and understand culture shock
Work/legal/cultural environments can hold all sorts of surprises.
Just say 'hello' to everyone...first reply on webmasterworld.com. ^_^
Thanks for the responses....although most say it happens to be where they live now.....which I have a hard time believing!
As the poster I quoted stated the separation from family can be an issue, but, I think in modern society it is not a huge leap! Your family might become distant in miles, but, no reason for them to become distant in thoughts or visits to each other.
