    I probably want to be there

    as badly as you'd like to be here and probably for the same reasons as well. I wish we could trade so se could see life through each other's eyes.

    I Want To Go To Japan

    I'm 17 years old and live in Portugal but I would like to live in Japan for one or two years. But even if I can get the cash the biggest problem for me is that I want to share a house with 2 or more people (more than 10 is probably too much). I'm not very sociable, outgoing or...

    I Will!

    I want to live in Spain. I know first of all I'm going to Paris for around four years, then I'm going to Spain. I've always wanted to live abroad, to be somewhere new and exiting. It's always been something that's appealled to me.

    My Goal

    This would be my ultimate goal. I plan on going into journalism or something similar, and move overseas to base myself there. But even if I don't get into journalism, I still want to go overseas and live there. I'll just have to get myself a job other than that of a journalist.

    It was really great, I lived there for two years. I worked and I went to school in Melbourne. It would be great to live abroad again some day and get a new kind of living abroad experience.
