In Europe I'm thinking Poland because I checked the cost of living calculator and it's about 30% cheaper than Charlotte, NC, the closest US city to me that was listed, so I'd be able to save some money to fly back sometimes. Plus some family friends recently spent a month there and said it was really nice. In Central/South America, probably Uruguay or possibly Argentina. In Asia, I'd say South Korea. If I could find an affordable place somewhere in Canada and could handle the Winters, maybe somewhere there. I know that Toronto is way more expensive than where I live now.

A WalMart greeter will make a million dollars in a lifetime, tax free. And live the life that can be lived on a million dollars. (47 years at $10 an hour = $977,000) Even at the most basic, bare-bones level, it costs a million dollars to live a lifetime. In the USA, at current rates, it costs more than a half a million dollars in health care expenses alone to keep an American alive and healthy for 80 years. ($650,000 to be more exact.)

I could only dream of having $1,000,000.. I'm on a low wage, and even if I earned only an average wage I wouldn't have anywhere near the amount of problems I do now.

But yes, just like Paul, I would stay right where I am, because I like the house I have right now. I rent it, so I might buy it, or just continue renting it and not worry about bills that I am falling behind on again..

A remote cottage in the Scottish Highlands, far away from the monotonous, toxic rat race.

I don't think $1 million can get you very far anywhere these days but I'd make good use of it. I'd buy a small hut right by a beach in Baja California so if I need anything in the U.S. , I'd drive back to San Diego.

Yes, being a Carioca would be great.

For me, a small coastal town in Portugal, most likely. I just like the place, the people, and the laid-back vibe. I'd open a pizzeria...or just do nothing and try to make the money last.
