What site do you use to look for property in Hawaii?
I prefer an english speaking country so I also thought about either California or Australia. Have been to both and liked both. Especially clima wise and the beachtownfeeling, the enjoyment of life of those people... compare to germany (where I am from) - a HUGE difference! I am living in italy now but it's not that much better.
Loved australia for that people just enjoy live there!!
Also I think health insurance and politics are better in australia as well people aren't that superficial and better educated as in California... but that's just my opinion... Let me know if I am wrong.
I haven't decided yet where to live but want to be out of europe by the end of this year!
