And yes, I'm saying that cuz I was born there :P

But seriously - Poland . Life here is comparatively really cheap, almost everybody knows English, there are beautiful landscapes with lakes, mountains and the Baltic sea as well as big busy cities, the weather can be boiling hot in the summer and freezing cold in the winter but I think it's fun to experience such diversity

If I had the opportunity to live abroad (which I hope to have as I'm also starting my freelance career) I'd be changing conutries, like - once per year/half a year for, lets say, 4 years (or till I get tired of it :P) and then settle in the one I liked the most ^^

Living in a city like New York or Boston would be great, however as an indie dev I don't think I could afford to live there and enjoy it. I also want to try out a new area since I'm only 22 and have no real ties to north east.

What are some nice places to live? I'm talking warm weather, beaches, nice people, etc. I think staying in the US would be easiest but I'd be open to moving international.

If anyone has done this what advice do you have?
Australia. Warm weather all year round, more beaches than you could shake a stick at, nice people, hot chicks who dig pommy accents. I'd recommend brisbane, Sydney is expensive and a bit rough with bikie wars.. Brisbane you get the city without the crime, plus you can live pretty close to the cbd for cheap rent.
