Really wish to get some advises from the members of this great forum.
I have been living in a traveller life since beginning of this century. I have travelled almost every corner of the world and lived in many countries (1-5 years in each country), but all these countries I lived were by opportunities (jobs or immigration policies) not by heart. The two countries I lived longest are Britain and Canada which also the ones I dislike most. After all these years of travelling and seeing how the world changed, I'm also very sad to see the whole world is deteriorating very fast in terms of environment, greed, materialism, loss of morals, cultures and beliefs. I blame the Anglo domination and it's just like cancer which spreads too aggressive and is killing the diversity of the world.
Travelling the world was my dream and I have fulfilled that. I guess it's really the time for me to settle down now, get a permanent place to live, get married and family. I'm not really worry about jobs as I'm sick of my previous career and want to have a break to search what I really like in my life. But that career earned me a lot of money, more than what I could spend (I'm not a big spender and really don't enjoy material possessions). So the money I saved can afford me to buy a place and support for my life for very long time once I'm settled down. Also I have no problem to earn more money any time if I want (but I really don't want now as I feel I was much happier when I had less money). During my travelling life, a few countries really caught my heart and made me want to settle down there. Poland (or Eastern EU countries) and Russia (or CIS countries) are among my favorites for their rich cultures and nice people and the resistance to be westernized. But I still have not decided, both have pros and cons.
Pros: No immigration issues (one of my passports is EU), good naturals (mountains, lakes, forests and oceans) close by.
Cons: Westernized too fast recently, not sure what's like in the near future. Languages difficult to learn and usage is limited. Ethnic homogeneity may make me alienated (I'm Asian).
Pros: Still keep the old fashion way which I really like, not too westernized (except Moscow and St.Pete). Food materials are fairly organic and healthy. Russian language has much more resources to learn and is much more useful. Ethic diversity may make me less alienated.
Cons: Immigration issues.
