When we started out, we wanted to go far and wide, both within the U.S. and in the wider world, particularly Canada and Europe, and a handful of places in Oceania, Asia, South America and Africa. While we still want to visit all of those places, we have turned our more immediate focus to finding a place to live for the longer-term. Currently, we think that will be somewhere in North America or Europe, so we are going to focus there for now. Beyond that, we choose places based on our interests, recommendations from friends and family, geography, climate, availability of accommodations and immigration rules. For this first year, we chose a mix of places we have and have not visited before and where we expected language barriers to be minimal.
