How many countries have you been living in outside your own?

For me 3: Japan for 7 years, S'pore for 2 years, now Ireland, next is going to be France.
I'm not really that sick of moving yet, but it does get tiring a little.
Haven't really found the "perfect" place where I feel homy, but then again maybe such place doesn't exist and one just needs to compromise with what's around.
It's indeed a very good experience. I learned to be independent since I was 20 to live overseas even, got to learn my 3rd language soon the 4th one too, met a lot of people from different places, and got to see different things.
It just hit me to remember the proverb, rolling stones gather no moss...
Had that feeling?

Seven so far - been a reporter in most of them. In Mexico the second longest (1.5 yrs.), then the States (2yrs - seemed like an eternity) - the rest all in Latin America.


Really really really wanna go to New Zealand.

I've only ever lived in Canada. Been to several different countries. I use to live on Vancouver Island...moved across the pond to the mainland...that's almost like a different country.

When I was a teenager, I lived for about ten months in the USA with my mother. For the rest of my life it's just Russia. It's getting a bit boring, though, forever living in one place. You guys are really lucky to travel so much

I have never set foot outside of Canada. To travel or to live. Never.

Lived in Canada my whole life and that's okay with me so far. I have travelled to the US and to Puerto Rico though for vacations.

I guess if you're content indeed you wouldn't have any problem even just to stay domestic.
I suppose heaps of Cannucks are pretty content with Canada ay (or eh)?
