    I don't think the United States is a "bad"

    place. It has it's good and its bad like everywhere else. When it comes to freedom of thought and the general behavior of the people, we have a lot of freedoms I think because of our "rights". Had I stayed in the Caribbean, I would've been bogged down by religious ideologies and...

    Is it possible to start a new life alone abroad?

    It seems to take a lot of courage... And I really envy those people who dares to love overseas alone .... But how to I move all my things to another country? Do I have to be rich to do all these ?
