I just got a call from my girlfriend and her dh about their new jobs. They and their kids are gonna live in Saudi Arabia for three years, she always wanted to live out of the country and open to a lot of different places. Anyways I'm amazed and don't think I am that adventurous and a little nervous for them but they are excited. I know that they must wear special clothing when they are outside the compound, and that she will not be allowed to drive. I don't know as I said I'm amazed that they can just go on these adventures and commit to living somewhere so different that I dont think they know that much about. they are smart sweet people, will be teaching want to make more money anyway. are any of you doing this kind of thing right now, or considering it or just not in your personality to do, or are concerned about them going to middle east, any thoughts you wish to share.Answer Question

I do like visiting places, but I am at the point in my life where I like being comfortable - and unless you have a ton of money - there is no place that offers the conveniences and amenities like right here in the US.

Well, that does sound beautiful - it was not so great in Sardinia. Many locals took advantage of the military members left and right. This got worse the closer it came for the US to be totally out of the area. They really had to work to squeeze every last dime out of our pockets before the source was gone. Our rents were outrageous, you had to bring in bottled water from the store because all of Sardinia's water is contaminated with fecal matter. Repair of ANYTHING was likely not going to happen - like heat. The only thing I liked over there was the many opportunities to travel. There are a LOT of nice places to visit in Europe - but I would never live there again.
