After years and years of living in foreign countries many expats no longer feel they fit in well in their home country. No surprise to any of you on this forum, I expect. We become a bit . . . odd. Or a whole lot odd.
I'd love to know where expats would want to "settle" if they had a choice. Where in the world, what kind of place? I imagine we'd all like a rather cosmopolitan environment, or at least a place where you find other globetrotting enthusiasts to share war stories with. The kind nobody in your home country cares about. Or understands.
But what if you prefer not to live in a big city? Where else in more easy-going countryside / seaside settings do you find like-minded international types? In a romantic Italian village? Or on a cheery Caribbean island? Are other expats there?
And no, I'm NOT interested in the gated communities or retirement ghettos of Spain, Panama and other "Miami South" locations. Please.
Give me your ideas!
