Craig and I are eternal nomads, and it’s no secret that we’ve moved around the world a lot – not just as travelers, but as expats too.

We’ve lived in Dublin, Bangkok, London, and now Raleigh in the United States – the world is our home, and we’re always visiting places and contemplating whether it’s somewhere we could live.

Even though we’re settled in Raleigh, we’re always being asked where in the world we could live. We’ve seen much of this world and we’ve got quite a few contenders on our list.

While we’re happy with our home in Raleigh, there are other destinations in the world that we would happily put roots down in.

Let’s not forget the people. Thailand is known as “The Land of Smiles” and for good reason – the people are always happy, welcoming and friendly. It rubs off on you, and you’ll find all your worries ebb away.

It is a toss up between Paris and somewhere like Bordeaux in France, but ultimately, the decision comes down to Bordeaux just because the traffic in Paris would get to me after a while.

I could handle spending my days cycling around the…
