I think most people with a decent education who have no children or constraining obligations can do the same if they put their mind to it, I've known people straight out of high school do it, I think people are just scared of change so they don't. The former is more interesting to me and a bit harder to swing.


Now, I would consider that...........how would you suggest one go about doing it. I would not no where to start. My only concern is I plan on buying a business but it will not be a business in which I have to "run" every day. I don't want to get into all of that but some insight on your remarks would be great.

New Orleans or Hawaii (if I could afford it)
New Orleans because it's a fun city and great people. Yes it has it's downsides and problems, but the lifestyle and people are amazing.
Hawaii, it is beautiful with a perfect climate.

In a big house, with a big piece of land, with sweeping views, somewhere in Spokane County, WA, or Kootenai County, ID. Or both.

I already live there!

But ideally from an RV that I can move anywhere I wanted to go.

Depending on your job or company, you could get a transfer. Not sure about buying a business over there... But there are company transfers that I have seen people do several times. I had the opportunity to go to Germany on a job transfer once actually but it just wasn't the right time. If you work in a high demand field there are also job openings. I know several tech people in a specialized software who have relocated, as well as people who speak languages which are in demand such as arabic translators. I'm sure there are other things in demand there, but those are just ones I know of. The problem with the Schengen countries is you can only stay there for 90 days without some form of visa (usually work from a company there, or student)
The UK has a 6 month window, Australia is 3 months, but you can't work there and would be hard just moving there and applying for jobs.
As a U.S. citizen, living in the UK 1/2 the year and visiting the rest of Europe is our best bet. One for language, two it is a longer window and generally more friendly towards Americans...not in a cultural way necessarily, just as far as leniency in case something were to happen.
There are tricks around the "system" by going in and out of the countries, getting passports stamped and stuff... but IMO That is not worth the risk as you could be permanently banned from entering, deported or detained...
