Thought of the Week: Where would you move to?

This week on y travel blog I wrote a post on 11 places we could live around the world.

We are eternal nomads always seeking out a new place to live for awhile and experience the joys of living in another country as a foreigner.

So this week’s thought of the week is

If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why?

You can read my post on y travel to see where I would love to live. If I had to choose just one now it would definitely be Thailand. I am craving the simplicity and ease of life there right now. A lifestyle that would cost me no more than $2000 a month for my soon to be family of four.

empowering quotes and phrases

This is Thailand

In this price I would rent a 3 bedroom furnished house, somewhere near the beach on the island of Phuket. Fast internet would cost me around $20 a month. I could work on my businesses, doing what I love and allowing my blogs the time and the creative space they need to grow. I would not have to cook, eating delicious Thai for three meals a day cooked by someone else. I could hire a maid and could give up cleaning -you all know how much I hate that!

I could get massages at least weekly, I would be spiritually at peace and content, and healthier. I would be happier and have more physical and mental time to spend with my children and my husband.

Total joy! That is what I call living.

    I know I am going to sound incredibly boring but I have to say there is no place I’d rather live than where I live now. After recently returning from a fabulous holiday overseas I realized that I love visiting other places and cultures but essentially i am a Melbourne girl at heart! And that’s where all my favorite people are!

      Not boring at all! it is great that you have found the place you can happily call home. That is what we all need to find. Melbourne is a great city and made our list of 11 places we could live around the world

    Hi Caz,

    I have to say life in the tropics is awesome! We’ve just moved setup a homebase in Penang, Malaysia after having 18 months on the road with our 2 young kids. Life is just simply more relaxed over here. From the road rules to the time people turn up to appointment, there simply is no hurry :)

    Comparing the stress of life back home in Australia we are infinitely more comfortable with our lifestyle here. Not to mention at a fraction of the cost. We just rented a 5bd house, have a full time house keeper (starting tomorrow actually), the kids in daycare and provided we don’t spend frivolously we should be able to manage this lifestyle for around $2000AUD per month.

    You’ll have to come down to visit us when you need to do a border run and we’ll do the same :)

    Cheers,
    Colin

      Now that is what I am talking about!! Quality living. I’d much rather a life like that for that price then to be stuck here in Oz struggling and unhappy. Thanks for the boost of inspiration, reminding me just how easy it is. Love the housekeeper- that is sooo me. Being border run friends sounds great

        Sorry I haven’t kept up, but do you have any specific plans for when you guys are heading over or where in Thailand you’re thinking of?

    Having only been home for a year since travelling and living all over the world, I was going to say that I’m quite happy where I am (Brissie)….but after reading your post and visualising the affordable luxury Thailand has to offer – sheesh, I might be squeezing my family of five into your suitcase :)

      Squeeze away. It is really hard to resist Thailand and that style of living for next to nothing.

    I would definitely move to the Philippines, in the island of Panglao, Bohol (Google it, you will be amazed). The costs are the same as what you say and the perks are the same too! One day, maybe we will, you never know right? ;)
