Yeah, my ex is from Arkansas. I don't think it suits me.

I love Portland. It was our home away from home.

The homeless crisis is really, really bad all up and down the I-5 corridor --- from California to British Columbia. In Washington, I swear every single corner and store entrance had panhandlers in the summer. It's so bad that you aren't even allowed to stop at a rest area for more than an hour around Seattle or you can get ticketed for loitering.

Gun violence also seems like it's just everywhere now. The "new normal/not normal."
I'd love to leave the states and ex-pat, but if you have a disability, you're pretty much stuck here unless you can come up with a million bucks. I'm still about $990,999 away from that goal.

I am native to Portland, Oregon.

Even though there are plenty of good places to visit, do not move to Portland as the homeless population is growing at an uncontrollable rate, gun violence has become more common, and city leaders are incompetent.

countries like Ecuador have relatively low entrance requirements. also there are over a million ex-pat yanks living down in Mexico in places like Guaymas.

I'd never live in Mexico due to the violence there. Plus, I don't speak Spanish; however, I've actually heard Ecuador is nice if you can handle the heat and humidity.

My dream would be to live in New Zealand. :heart:
Maybe someday!

all the commonwealth nations have very strict entrance requirements for americans, but NZ is slightly more welcoming than the rest.
