Does anyone know if its possible to live and work in a foreign country for 2-5 months a year. I am a 42yo american with no outside ties, no formal education and no sponsors but have 6-700,000.us dollars in assets. I am interested in doing this in a few years in a safe, affordable and warm climate.

I don't understand--if the EU's immigration rules are so strict, how did they get so many unskilled immigrants from outside europe?

It seems really hard for an American to work/live anywhere else.
But very easy for someone to sneak into our country!
I would love to work & stay in Germany/Italy/England for a year or two!

I think the best way for an American to live in another country and work, is to get hired here with an international company, then learn that countries language and ask to be relocated there.

I worked for IBM which sent me to live in Australia and Singapore.

I worked for SAP and had an offer to move to learn German and move to Germany, I turned it down though.
My wife lived worked for Deutsche Bank and was moved to Hong Kong and Germany.

Now we would like to go live in Brazil, but need to learn Portuguese better.

If I could pick anywhere- I would go to the south of Portugal- very beautiful.
I am from there, so that helps. Alot of tourists there because of the beautiful weather.

Europe is hard to get into, no matter if it's west or east.. Which is a shame, because I believe Europe and the US and Canada should have sorted out some kind of agreement that would make immigration between the continents easier.. It's hard for americans to get into Europe and vice versa..
If you don't have any family relations or working for an international company, i don't know where to start.. I know that my country (Norway), has strict immigration laws for people from outside the EU..

But if you're planning a move to Europe, Scandinavia is a good alternative, Norway, Denmark & Sweden are pretty much alike, they're all among the top 5 wealthiest nations in the world, high salaries and last but not least; very low crime rates, compared to major American, British and Canadian cities!
