    Yes, briefly when I was an exchange student I lived in Galicia, Spain. An exhilarating experience for a short while. It would be difficult to start over in a different contry, away from familiar grounds, I suppose, but the place I stayed at became my second home and at this point...

    Switzerland :)

    I moved (due to my dads job) to switzerland just after my 9th birthday and eventually moved back when  was 11. My whole experience there  was pretty negative, but the country itself was nice. Unfortunately I think I was too young to appreciate it.

    Tokyo, Japan

    Lived there for 3 years - it was quite different from North America for sure. Loved some things and didn't like others. I recently went back (last summer) and had a great time - visited the North which I had always wanted to do. Tokyo is still the crazy busy wild place it...

    Culture

    I count myself so fortunate to have lived in another country and experienced another culture. It was the only way that I was able to appreciate the good and bad of my own culture.

    Ireland

      I went to escape my life here, and it worked. It was fantastic, a carefree life. But I'm back now, and my problems are still here. :( only bigger now. BUT that's ok, because maybe some that Irish magic came home with me, and I am ready to face the problems, and move forward.

    South Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines

    I love living in South Korea the most because of the weather, language, food, culture, people and technology. I don't like living in the Philippines because the weather is hot and humid all year round, not to mention other bad things in there.

    I generally am attracted to people who live far away. I'm not sure if that's a self defence mechanism or merely coincidence, but I have mixed feelings about it.
