NJ is just too damn expensive. I have a good paying job and I don't see myself moving out of my parents house anytime soon. Also not a huge fan of the live to work lifestyle I seem to be falling into. I find myself stressed more often than not and that's just not how I've ever been. Plus, I've always wanted to live somewhere else just to see things from a different perspective. What I have entertained thus far: 1. Australia- I've brought this idea up before. I qualify for a work visa because I'm in a desired profession. This idea has kind of been put on the back burner, but it's still on the stove, so to speak. 2. Utah- Park City/Salt Lake area. I applied to a job at BackCountry.com awhile back. I didn't get the job, but in researching if it would be feasible, I fell in love with the area. Cheap to live, still pretty nice salaries, fairly laid back, and tons of activities right outside your door. 3. Arizona- This just popped into my head one day. My parents vacationed out there and said that I would absolutely love it. Haven't really researched it much other than that they do have some decent snowboarding, surprisingly. I'm kind of just spit balling because I'm bored at work with nothing to do. Certainly would like to get out of auditing, or even out of a cubicle all together. What do you guys think? Has anyone just dropped everything and relocated on a whim? Advice to someone thinking about it? Things I may not be considering?
