Would you ever live abroad?

I've lived in California my entire life, but I think living abroad for a year or two would be so much fun. I'd love to live somewhere in Europe where I could eat buttery croissants and crusty breads to my heart's content. I've known a few people who took off from work and backpacked through entire countries, but I think it'd be just as interesting to live, work, and cook dinner "at home" in another country, just like all the other people who live there.

Have you ever lived abroad or do you want to? Where have you lived or where would you love to go?

I would love to live abroad, one of my dreams.

I agree that it's very different to live somewhere than to visit. I actually wasn't a huge fan of London as a visitor, but now that I live here I absolutely LOVE it.

If I could choose another place to live abroad, I think I would choose Munich, Germany. It's old school yet big city at the same time, which I love! Plus, there's the Hof Brau Haus and wineries nearby. Actually, I guess it's like Sacramento in a lot of ways, ha.

I'd also really like to live somewhere in Africa for a while. There's something about the history and culture that really appeals to me.

Anyway, I definitely recommend living abroad sometime in your life! It really changes your perspective. “The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one's own country as a foreign land.” -G. K. Chesterton

I lived in Paris for six months last year, and I would definitely do it again! My dream is to live in the UK for a while, and Budapest with my best friend... maybe after college sometime!
