Hi, :)

Well I'm not old just under 30, and I need some advice... I'm thinking of moving abroad as I just don't think my heart is in the UK.

I'm an EU citizen but do not have a degree by way of higher education. I'm single and have no children.

I speak only English at the moment. So far, I've holidayed in USA, Italy and Australia and I want to spread my wings and live abroad. I know there's so much more to explore beyond UK.

However I'm worried as I'll be by myself and am not sure which country to go to. Europe seems the sensible choice because it'll be easier but I think I'll struggle not being bilingual.

I love hot weather and being by the beach egc, but I also love city life, and a clean and safe environment with friendly people. I love shopping and nightlife as well as cafes and a bit of history. I know what I want from life BUT I'm finding it so hard to decide on a place to live.

I suppose ive considered France, Germany, Malta, Spain, Greece, Netherlands but I just cannot think of a place to go :(

I guess a place where the standard of living is high/reasonable and I'll feel safe? A place where costs are reasonable?

This is where I'm stuck. I'm happy to learn a language but even there I'm stuck because I want to learn a language that I know I'm going to use for the rest of my life.

Does anyone here have any suggestions? Ill try and read abit more in the meantime but there's so much info and good things about these places, Ive got stuck again.

Hoping someone can help and stop me grovelling...thanks alot

My suggestion is to travel, don't " move " anywhere, and decide which place feels best. Once you find the right place you'll know it.

You'd be better off choosing a continent, then a path within it.

Does anyone here have any suggestions? Many countries covered in this expat forum, browse to your hearts content, develop a short list then investigate cost-of-living, employment opportunities and security issues. Review travelers warning notices.
