Fstoppers moved to Puerto Rico. Have you had the desire to move?

Multimedia Producer ( or specialist?) is in demand I think, that how my South African colleague at work got his visa from, but now he is turning into full time pilot for Air NZ, what a change in career! 

Thanks for the heads up. Things are different since the last time I looked. Going to start checking job listings again. And while I'm at it, I'll check Australia, the UK and English speaking jobs in other places. I'd really like to work/live in places outside the U.S.

is winter in SoCal, spring anywhere shooting a film, summer in Poland, and Japan during autumn.

Summer in Poland isn't that much fun, to be honest. 😜

For the last few years it has been pretty hot (~30 - 35C) and dry. 

If I could suggest a perfect time for visiting, it'd be late September. The temperatures are perfect (~15C) and it's the time for first signs of golden polish autumn to show up.

I'm guessing that you have ties to Poland?  it's not normally on many people's 'must-see places" lists :)

You'd be surprised!
Maybe we are not the in the 'top 10 must see', but we're there, somewhere. Haha. 🤗

Not a huge fan of popular Poland politics, but neither am I in the USA, so no big deal. 

Believe me, no one is.

We go to the Tatras and like to hike at those modest altitudes.  Warm, hot, cool.  All of the above.

But yeah, hanging around Krakow for a few weeks got to be pretty steamy.

My wife's side of the family is all rural Polish...so...

Now I know it's silly, but in all my 23 years, I have never been to Tatry. 

Sudety, Karpaty, Bieszczady - multiple times. 

No Tatry, so far.

The funniest / saddest thing of all is that even people living in rural areas don't share a common ground and can't agree with each other.

Only from a news desk, not so high on my wishlist....

I'd give the UK a wide berth for a while until it all shakes out. 

I was outside Parliament shooting a news job today and lets just say its all getting a bit fraught as the countdown ticks louder.

Ireland might be worth a look though.

Yeah he has a health food channel he's been doing for a long time. Cost of living is quite cheap there I imagine though. He probably doesn't make that much. He previously lived with his mom.

I think he was paying something like $340 a month for a fully furnished apartment. I think he does alright though, between his two channels. He's moving back to Canada this month, I think. He's apparently pretty well known among the vegan YouTube community, though he is currently not a practicing vegan. He cracks me up. I think he reads this forum.

Apparently there is going to be a new border that might need some coverage.... 

Just as soon as they come up with this nebulous future solution that they claim they could use to try and control such an expanse of crossing points.

With 50 days to go they will probably end up using this plan from Blazing Saddles.

Really interesting Long video, about Fstoppers moving to an Island. I get itchy feet often, moving myself 1,000 miles away from where I live now or more. Not that drastic of a move but.. Anyone else had the desire to just sort of pick up and go somewhere Really different? Not just because of something bad happening where you are located, but just to get a new shot of energy from a new community, a lift in spirits,. A new look at even the same profession, or maybe a chance to change completely.

I really never gave Puerto Rico much of a thought. But it does sound interesting, and less of a challenge than I would have guessed. This video might help someone who thought about moving there. It answers a lot of questions about it.

 

To a place with dodgy infrastructure that falls on it's face every time a hurricane comes over? No thanks.
