well language is definatly a barrier in Brazil because those who speak english are few and far between. Im not moving there permanently, just for a few months while I "meet the parents" and its nice knowing I can say whatever I want in front of them and wont f**k up because they wont understand a thing I say .

I lived in New Zealand for 6 months 2 seperate times, but that wasnt bad because for the most part English is the primary language.

The most difficult for me was coming back to the states, now thats "starting over". Coming from New Zealand both times I was close to broke and my cash from NZ wasnt worth a shit here in the states, so I arrived with the clothes in my pack and a determination to do it again. both times I had no vehicle, no place to stay, and no job, but I always make it work no matter what the situation is. As a matter of fact I think starting over is healthy for me because my life always consist of something new. The problem is, now I have a VERY good job so it will be tough to bail next time. When I go to Brazil I was allowed a leave of absence for the time Im gone, but the next time I decide to go global for awhile, its over with Wells Fargo life goes on

To start over... hmm.. that would be difficult. When I was younger I always wanted to go to Germany, and that would have pretty much been starting over. I don't know too much about other societies and such so I don't think I could make a definate answer. That and I just want to "start over" everywhere.

Voglio andare all'Italia!

Yep, Italy is probably my favorite country to visit over and over, again. I'd LOVE to live there for awhile and see how it was...
