USA Is Dreadful So Moving To Paradise, Want To Know Where?

Have you ever said ๐Ÿค” “I am so fed up with the greed, politics & lack of compassion ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿ‘ฟ for others here in the US?” ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ


Are you a parent ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿฝโ€๐Ÿผ terrified when your child leaves for school ๐Ÿซ what will happen? Is the after school activity coach โ›น๐Ÿผ a pedophile? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Will the police ๐Ÿ‘ฎ๐Ÿป harass/shoot my child ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿฝ because of the way he looks? ๐Ÿ’” Will the screen time ๐ŸŽฎ addiction EVER END! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ

Well, that’s where I am my friendsโ—๏ธ

The Background…

Just as I was starting to promote my vacation travel ๐Ÿงณ packages (services link below ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ) my ex-husband hit me ๐ŸŽฏ with news he’s going back overseas ๐ŸŒ to work ๐Ÿช– He wants to get ahead with his finances ๐Ÿ’ธ

At the beginning of 2๏ธโƒฃ0๏ธโƒฃ2๏ธโƒฃ2๏ธโƒฃ he moved ๐Ÿšš to the east coast from Oregon to be closer to our son ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ Although I was upset ๐Ÿ˜ช I respected his decision to improve the life of his kids ๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ

Coincidentally ๐Ÿคญ I had been looking ๐Ÿ‘€ for affordable cities here in the states ๐Ÿ—ฝ Currently I live in Montgomery County, Maryland, just 2๏ธโƒฃ0๏ธโƒฃ minutes from DC ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿพโ€โš–๏ธ

According to the latest five-year estimates, a total of 49 counties had median household incomes that were above $100,000. Of the 15 counties with the highest incomes, five are located in Virginia or Maryland, near the nationโ€™s capital.

Not having any luck ๐Ÿ€ finding a 2๏ธโƒฃ bedroom ๐Ÿ›Œ UNDER $2K ANYWHERE (not even๐Ÿง๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ in the more southern states ๐Ÿ’ฏ) realized if my ex can move overseas ๐Ÿ›ซ for a better life, WTF am I staying in the USโ‰๏ธ

Immediately did a Google search ๐Ÿ’ป of affordable ๐Ÿ’ฐ places in the world ๐Ÿงญ And easily found the perfect place ๐Ÿ’— that checked all my boxes โœ…

  • Affordability – OBVIOUSLY ๐Ÿ’ท
  • Small town living where neighbors care for each other ๐Ÿซ‚
  • A more fulfilled life for my son to play safely outside ๐Ÿšด๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ
  • English speaking to make the transition easy ๐Ÿ” 
  • Great real estate opportunities ๐Ÿก
  • Not far from the US because my dad is in his 70s ๐Ÿ’บ
  • Diverse cultures but rich in local history ๐Ÿ—ฟ
  • Most importantly NOT THE US! ๐Ÿšซ

Next Steps…

Now the hard part begins ๐Ÿฅต Editing down my cherished possessions ๐Ÿ’ & selling them ๐Ÿช™ Also deciding what to ship ๐Ÿ“ฆ has been a MAJOR UNDERTAKING ๐Ÿคฏ Spent weeks ๐Ÿ“… dealing with an auctioneer only for him to cancel ๐Ÿšซ soon after hiring ๐Ÿ‘บ Check out my Google review โžก๏ธHEREโฌ…๏ธ

Still have to sell my 2021 Honda Accord ๐Ÿš— Was told by a salesman ๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿพโ€๐Ÿ’ผ at Criswell Honda (19525 Amaranth Dr, Germantown, MD 20874 – (240) 614-4660)

๐Ÿšจ Carmax (16411 Shady Grove Rd, Gaithersburg, MD 20877(301) 947-9790) will give me a better deal ๐Ÿค‘ Carmax contracts only last 7๏ธโƒฃ days so either going to sell soon ๐Ÿ˜ฑ & rent a car for a few weeks ๐Ÿ†š sell it closer to my move date ๐Ÿง
