I am married to a Scot, have lived two years in Northern England and lived three years in Belgium. Although I would not say that Europe has been the most ‘life changing’ place to live, it is certainly one of the best in terms of quality of life. Relatively inexpensive and easily traversed for a fellow western traveler, it is where I would recommend to start your worldly venture – although I encourage you to not stop there.
A place little thought of by many western travelers (Americans), although it is growing with our British cousins, is Eastern Europe. If you are looking for something that is a bit off the beaten path, but still within the continent I encourage you to try the former Yugoslavian countries in addition to your classic Croatia, Hungry and Czech Republic. You can read about some of these adventures here.
