you sound like you've reached your limit...better get use to sharing dude.
if Australia's one of the top three places to move to then there's a hell of a lot of mismanaging going on out there.
Odessa looks better and better all the time
I have never been to Kherson, Nikolaev, or Odessa but I've seen online Odessa has architecture,and I will look @ Odessa now, and one can rent a horse & carriage, like Charleston. I've always wanted to go to Charleston. The places on the list,esp. Iceland, DO NOT have the lower forms of life, THAT is why they are listed high! Anyone," type in Iceland, you will not get 3rd world types, or Bangledesh types, "I believe in standards!" I saw nice looking people in Scandanavian brocures also; and Australia was no. 3, who doesn't like a kaola, or kangaroo?
I just ask"What are people doing to bring in money, when the country is broke ?" I saw "advisory, and some EUAM listings." WHO and and WHAT is anyone advising ! A bartender can advise.
Michael- I hope not to burst your bubble about SS--- but I have never seen anyone make that amount from SS . I worked for 42 years, paid the maximum about double, and get half that amount. If your wife is a russian patriot, I advise not to move to Ukraine. little putin is NOT admired here at all! Crimea WILL come back to Ukraine soon, and all will be great once again. By the way--- Poroshenko has taken NO monies from government. He is a VERY wealthy candy company owner-- has millions already, maybe billions. take care, Bill
Kerhsonbill, By the way, I have 3 yeas until I can receive my social security, which will be about $2700 per month, so with my pension I will have maybe $5700/mo..
